expected Friday afternoon into Saturday with small craft to gale
force winds in the northern and central Inner Channels. The
highest winds will be in locations exposed to the north or near
mountain passes through the Coast Range. The potential for a taku
wind event in downtown Juneau and Douglas is also likely with
strong gusts Thursday night into early Saturday.

This statement will be updated by 4 PM akdt Wednesday or sooner
