... Gusty northerly winds will persist over southcentral Alaska...

The gusty northerly winds diminished some overnight but
strengthened again this morning with most areas expecting to see
stronger winds than yesterday. These winds should then begin to
diminish tonight with Tuesday seeing much lower winds with the
strong gusts relegated to the more common windy areas such as
Seward Whittier and Valdez.

These gusty winds will increase the risk of branches breaking off
trees and possibly causing some trees to blow over.

Use caution around campfires and burn piles as these winds can
cause fires to spread rapidly.

The relic ash from the 1912 katmai Volcano eruption will continue
to get resuspended in these strong winds and impact Shelikof
Strait and parts of Kodiak Island with periods of poor air
quality. Persons who are sensitive to poor air quality should
consider staying indoors.

Public Information Statement
Statement as of 4:53 PM AKDT on August 31, 2015

... Glacier dammed lake on the snow river which flows into Kenai
Lake is releasing...

The Glacier dammed lake on the snow river which flows into Kenai
Lake is releasing at this time. Water levels on the snow river
are steadily rising and are reflective of previous outburst
events. A water level increase on Kenai Lake is expected.

The snow river will likely rise to a stage of 13 or 13.5 feet... causing
Kenai Lake to rise 1 to 2 feet. Smaller rises are expected on the
Kenai River the end of this week. No flooding is expected at this
time.

Uncertainty exists during each Glacier Dam Lake release event in terms of
initial Glacier Dam Lake volume and the rate in which the lake drains.
Forecast estimates of peak stage and timing will be updated on the
Alaska-Pacific river forecast center website:
