HUNTERS...CAMPERS...AND OTHERS ALONG RIVERS AND STREAMS IN THE
CENTRAL AND WESTERN INTERIOR SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR HIGH WATER
LEVELS THIS WEEK. RIVERS AND STREAMS IN THIS AREA WILL RISE
SHARPLY TONIGHT AND TUESDAY DUE TO RUNOFF FROM HEAVY RAINFALL.
SOME LOCATIONS WILL REACH BANKFULL LEVELS BUT FLOODING IS NOT
EXPECTED AT THIS TIME. LARGER RIVERS SUCH AS THE YUKON AND
KUSKOKWIM RIVERS WILL RISE THIS WEEK BUT ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN
BELOW BANKFULL. STREAMS AND SMALLER RIVERS WILL BE MORE
PRONE TO HIGH WATER LEVELS.

ONE TO TWO INCHES OF RAIN WILL FALL BEFORE THE RAIN TAPERS OFF ON
TUESDAY. LOCALLY HIGHER RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE IN THE
KUSKOKWIM MOUNTAINS. IN THE ALASKA RANGE...SNOW IS EXPECTED ABOVE
3000 FEET AND WILL DIMINISH THE VOLUME OF RUNOFF.
