...Rising Water Levels on the Tanana River...

The Tanana River will gradually rise through next week and may
approach bankfull levels in some locations. This rise in water
levels is due to recent heavy rain in the Eastern Alaska Range and
warm temperatures which have increased glacial runoff. Several
weather systems are forecast to move into the eastern Interior
this weekend and early next week and bring more rain to the
region. In addition to rising water levels, bank erosion is
expected to increase and most sandbars will be covered with water
through much of next week.
