... High water on interior rivers through Memorial Day weekend...

A weather front will stall over the southeast interior tonight
and persist into Thursday afternoon before dissipating. This front
will bring 0.75 to 1.50 inches of rain to Salcha, goodpaster,
fortymile, Johnson, and Robertson river basins. It will also
bring lesser amounts of rain to the chena, Chatanika, and Birch
Creek drainages.

Water levels on rivers draining these Upland areas are currently
running near bankfull in some locations and combined with snowmelt
at higher elevations they may be pushed to bankfull before the
weekend is over.

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.

Water levels are expected to gradually fall next week.
