Fairbanks and the White Mountains west...

* until 830 PM akdt Tuesday

rain has been falling since Friday over the chena and Chatanika

Saturday afternoon range from one-half inch to over two inches
   with the highest amounts over the hills north and east of
Fairbanks. Another inch of rain is expected through Sunday. Many
   stream and rivers in this area are already high due to heavy rain
   from last week.

This additional rain is expected to cause streams and small rivers
to rise rapidly tonight and Sunday with minor flooding possible.
Flooding will be most likely on smaller creeks in steep terrain.

* Some locations that will experience minor flooding include... low
spots along the Tanana river between Fairbanks and
Manley... including Perkins Landing... Nenana... and Manley Hot
Springs. Also included are goldstream creek... the Chatanika river
from the Elliott Highway downstream to Minto flats... and the
creeks crossing the Elliott and Dalton highways south of the Yukon
river. Minor flooding is also expected on the chena river in the
Steamboat Landing subdivision similar to what occurred earlier in
the week.

In Fairbanks... water levels on the chena river will rise through
   Monday but are not expected to be higher than the past week. Bike
   paths under bridges and low lying backyards will be under water
   as they were earlier this week.

   river and for the chena river upstream of the Moose Creek dam. See
