It’s not surprising after the cool weather we’ve had the past month that the ice is still pretty thick. Late break-up? Maybe…but then again it’s anyone’s guess.
Here’s what Mark Leary found on April 21.
Upper Kalskag: 45”, mid-channel, patchy snow cover, windblown, but there is close to 24” of snow on the ice just a couple of miles down below the village
Aniak: 48”, mid-channel, 13” of continuous snow cover
Napaimute: 48”, mid-channel, 75% glare ice.
