A STRONG STORM WILL DEVELOP LATE THIS WEEK WHICH WILL IMPACT THE
ANCHORAGE AREA SATURDAY AFTERNOON INTO SUNDAY. WHILE THERE IS STILL
SOME UNCERTAINTY WITH THE STRENGTH OF THE WINDS AT THIS TIME IT DOES
NOT LOOK LIKE THIS STORM WILL BE NEARLY AS STRONG AS THE STORM FROM
LAST WEEK. HOWEVER THERE IS STILL A HIGHER THAN NORMAL CHANCE OF
UPROOTED TREES AND RESULTING POWER OUTAGES DUE TO LAST WEEKS STORM.
MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL WITH THIS STORM WILL ALSO KEEP THE GROUND
SATURATED AND EASIER TO MOVE.

Anchorage sold out of generators last week due to power outages. We just got our resupply of Honda generators in today and they are on the way out the door due to this weather warning.
