NWS RiverWatch Prepares For Kuskokwim River Breakup

Apr 30, 2021

Kuskokwim River breakup has begun. The ice went out in front of Nicolai in the upper river last week, and ice in several tributaries has cleared as well. Next week, the National Weather Service will send a crew to fly the river and survey ice conditions. This crew is part of RiverWatch. One of its members, National Weather Service Hydrologist Celine Van Breukelen, joins us on Coffee at KYUK.
