2020 Alaska River Break-up Preview

April 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am AKDT

Most of Alaska has just come off of a colder or snowier (or both) winter than in recent years. Crane Johnson with the NWS Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center will review break-up basics and an overview of current conditions. ACCAP Alaska Climate Specialist Rick Thoman will provide the latest subseasonal outlooks that help inform the APRFC’s official break-up outlook.
