The Kuskokwim in Aniak (or the rest of the river) isn’t doing much these days; it’s still quite cold for this time of year getting below freezing most nights. That supposedly is supposed to change, however. Here’s the forecast for the next few days.
With these cool temperatures, water levels are rising only slightly in Aniak. Mark Leary reports that water in Napaimute rose only 6-inches yesterday but dropped 4-iches overnight (the first time since the thaw began); by noon today the temperature in Napaimute was already 40 degrees.
The forecast is calling for a chance of rain in the Kuskokwim Valley later today.
The ducks are flying…or at least hunkering down amongst the frozen ponds.
