...Increased Snowmelt and Rising River Levels... Temperatures rising into the upper 60s and mid 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.

River levels will likely rise to bankfull and possibly higher over the weekend and into early next week. This includes drainages along the Denali Park road, the Steese Highway, and the Taylor Highway. Residents are encouraged to watch river levels and move items along the riverbank to higher ground.
