...Increased Snowmelt and Rising River Levels... Temperatures rising into the upper 60s and lower 70s over the next few days will increase higher elevation snowmelt across the central and eastern Interior. Some locations in the Tanana-Yukon Uplands and the Alaska Range have a record amount of snow on the ground for mid-May. Runoff from snowmelt will bring significant rises to rivers and streams, especially along the Alaska Range and those draining the Tanana-Yukon Uplands. River levels will likely rise to bankfull and possibly higher over the weekend and into early next week. This includes the Chena River, Salcha River, and Chatanika River as well as drainages along the Taylor Highway. Residents are encouraged to watch river levels and move items along the riverbank to higher ground.
