SPRING BREAKUP OUTLOOK FOR ALASKA
RELEASED ON MARCH 23rd

 

The flood potential from snowmelt and ice jams throughout Alaska this spring is currently rated as normal. This would indicate that locations that often experience flooding during breakup are likely to see minor flooding if an ice jam forms downstream. This forecast is based on current ice thickness, observed snowpack, river freeze-up stage, and long range weather forecasts.

 

March ice thickness data are available for a limited number of observing sites in Alaska. March 1st measurements indicate that ice thickness is generally normal to slightly above normal across most of the state with two exceptions. The ice on the Yukon River at Galena was significantly thicker than normal (measured at 48 inches on February 27th) and the ice thickness measured on the Colville River at Colville Village was below normal.

 

The most important factor determining the severity of ice breakup remains the weather during April and May. The temperature outlook through March indicates an increased chance for above normal temperatures in Southern and Eastern areas of Alaska. The temperature outlook through April suggests an increased chance of above normal temperatures for Southern and Western portions of the state with equal chances of above or below normal temperatures for the northeast portion of Alaska.  It should be noted that forecast confidence through this period is low as model results have been quite variable lately.
