...A FLOOD WARNING FOR A GLACIER-DAMMED LAKE OUTBURST REMAINS IN
EFFECT UNTIL 100 PM AKDT MONDAY FOR THE SNOW RIVER AND THE KENAI
RIVER FROM KENAI LAKE TO SKILAK LAKE...

The Snow glacier dammed lake is still releasing at this time. Water
levels on the Snow River are steadily rising and are reflective of
previous outburst events. Expect a significant water level increase
on Kenai Lake through the weekend.

Water should start to flood the Primrose campground and other low
lying areas by late this afternoon. Cooper Landing is forecasted to
go into flood stage this evening. Water on Kenai Lake and the Snow
and Kenai Rivers will remain high through the weekend and early next
week due in part to precipitation.

Water levels on the Kenai River below Skilak Lake will likely see a
more moderate increase to near bankfull conditions by early next
week.

There is considerable uncertainty of water volumes released and
drain rates during glacial dammed lake outbursts. This particular
event is anticipated to coincide with several days of precipitation.
Please check back for updates at the Alaska-Pacific River Forecast
Center website: www.weather.gov/aprfc/

EXPECTED IMPACTS: Low-lying areas above Skilak Lake are anticipated
to see minor-to-moderate flooding at the culmination of this event.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Cooper Landing, Primrose Campground, Skilak Lake and Kenai Lake.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring. All
interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.
