...High Water on Interior Rivers through Memorial Day Weekend...

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue over
the southeast portion of the Interior on Sunday and Monday.
Additional amounts of rain of 0.20 inches with locally higher
amounts in areas with heavy downpours.

River levels remain high for the Chatanika, 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 are moving downriver and local bank
erosion is possible through Monday. 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.
