We ask that when you send announcements for the Yukon Wireless that you write the information in the body of the e-mail. You can send us a flier, which we can attach to the announcement. But we would rather you write out the who, what, when, where, etc of your announcement. Note that we may adjust your announcement for broadcast purposes. Also, please do not send your important announcements via Facebook.  Instead, e-mail it to wireless@kiyu.com to make sure we see them.

 

Many people still fax. While we accept faxes, we would prefer e-mail at wireless@kiyu.com as it allows us to have a better record of sender information and it makes transferring the information easier for our editors. If you do fax, you may want to call our office to make sure we received it.

Here is the latest Spring Breakup Outlook from the National Weather Service (updated April 20th):

The spring breakup flood potential in Alaska is forecast to be below average with the exception of North Slope rivers and Northwest rivers, including the Koyukuk River, where the flood threat is average.  Recent forecasts still suggest an earlier than normal breakup for all locations statewide, but with cooler temperatures expected to persist over the next week or two, breakup at many locations could be several days or weeks later than earlier breakup forecasts. 

Recent ice measurements indicate that ice thickness is below average across the state with locations generally between 60-90 percent of normal.

The April 1 snowpack analysis shows normal snowpack in the northwest part of the state, including the Koyukuk River basin. The remainder of the state has a below normal snowpack with the Tanana and Upper Yukon basins about 75% of normal.

The most important factor determining the severity of ice breakup remains the weather during April and May. Dynamic breakups with a high potential for ice jam flooding typically require cooler than average temperatures for most of April followed by an abrupt transition to warm summer-like temperatures. The most recent long term forecasts predict cooler than normal temperatures lasting through the end of April. The forecast for May shows a strong chance of warmer than normal temperatures over the entire state. 

Due to the warmer than normal March and early April, along with thinner than normal river ice, a thermal breakup is highly likely this year along the Yukon and Kuskokwim Rivers.  It is still possible for flooding ice jams to occur but the probability is less than normal.  The threat of flooding is slightly higher on the Koyukuk River, which did not experience significant ice degradation during March and early April, and has a deeper than normal snowpack.

Recent Observed River Conditions as of Friday April 19th:

There are open stretches along the entire Tanana River, but ice is still intact at Manley.  The Yukon River remains ice-covered with some short open areas reported near tributaries.
