...High Water on Interior Rivers through Memorial Day Weekend...
Scattered to numerous showers and isolated thunderstorms will
continue Friday and Saturday for the Central and Eastern
Interior. Additional amounts of rain of 0.25 inches with locally
higher amounts in areas with heavy downpours. River levels
remain high for the Chena, Salcha, Goodpaster, Fortymile,
Johnson, and Robertson River Basins. Rivers will continue
to run high for the next several days.
Increased debris such as logs and sticks moving downriver has
already been noted and local bank erosion is possible through the
weekend. Most gravel bars are already covered with water and some
river access points have water over them, or may become impassable
due to the high water. People on or near Interior rivers should
be prepared for high water, use extreme caution if near the
rivers, and move items away from the river as they continue to
rise. Also the high water is limiting clearance for boats under
the bridges along the Chena.
