May 19 River Happenings…But There’s Not Much Going On

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.

AniakTemp5_19_30DegreesWith 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.
