FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The city of Fairbanks has already endured its rainiest summer on record, and a turn of the calendar to September just means more of the same.

A National Weather Service advisory for Monday says a weather system bearing wind and heavy rain is heading into Interior Alaska from the northwest.

Heavy rain is in the forecast from the Nulato Hills east to the Fairbanks area and along the Alaska Range.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://is.gd/LrWgqV ) the heaviest rain is expected to fall between Fairbanks and Denali National Park and Preserve.

The Chena, Little Chena and Chatanika rivers are expected to rise sharply on Tuesday. Other streams in the mountains and Denali area are also expected to rise, with flooding possible. Rock and mudslides may occur in steep terrain.
