...TRACE ASHFALL REMAINS POSSIBLE FROM KILAUEA VOLCANO...

Web cams, observers and radar data indicate that occasional small
bursts of volcanic ash continue to emanate from Halemaumau
Crater. Low level trade winds will push ash toward the southwest,
and ash fallout will likely occur over the Kau district and
Highway 11 southwest of the town of Volcano, including the
communities of Pahala, Wood Valley and Naalehu.

In addition, trace amounts of ash deposited over the last few
days are likely being picked up by locally gusty strong trade
winds, contributing to dusty conditions.

Avoid excessive exposure to ash which is an eye and respiratory
irritant. Those with respiratory sensitivities should take extra
precaution to minimize exposure.

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

A weather front has stalled over the Interior and will persist
into Thursday afternoon before dissipating. This front will bring
0.25 to 0.50 inches of rain to the Chena, Salcha, Goodpaster,
Fortymile, Johnson, and Robertson River Basins. It will also bring
lesser amounts of rain to the Chatanika, and Birch Creek
drainages. Numerous showers will continue Friday into Saturday for
the Eastern Interior. Additional amounts of rain for the Eastern
Interior of 0.25 to 0.50 inches with locally higher amounts in
areas with heavy downpours. Lesser amounts of rain expected over
the Middle Tanana Valley Friday and Saturday.

Water levels on rivers draining these upland areas are currently
running near bankfull and will remain high through the weekend.

Increased debris such as logs and sticks moving downriver has
already been noted and local bank erosion is possible through the
weekend. 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.

Water levels are expected to gradually fall next week.
