Frost Advisory
Statement as of 3:25 PM AKDT on August 30, 2015

... Frost advisory in effect from 10 PM this evening to 10 am akdt
Monday...

The National Weather Service in Fairbanks has issued a frost
advisory... which is in effect from 10 PM this evening to 10 am
akdt Monday.

* Location... in valleys including Fairbanks.

* Temperature... 25 to 32.

* Timing... breaks in the clouds will allow frost to form starting
late tonight. Frost is possible again Monday night and Tuesday
night... but warmer air is expected to move in Wednesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A frost advisory means that frost is expected. Protect sensitive
outdoor plants which may be damaged by cold temperatures.




Areal Flood Advisory
Statement as of 1:21 PM AKDT on August 30, 2015

The National Weather Service in Fairbanks has extended the

* Flood Advisory for...
the chena river upstream of the Moose Creek dam...

* until 200 PM akdt Tuesday

* over two inches of rain fell across portions of the chena river
basin between last Tuesday and Thursday. The rainfall caused the
upper chena river to rise above flood stage late last week. This
crest of high water will move down river through the next several
days.

As of Sunday afternoon the crest of high water on the chena river
is still moving past the Moose Creek dam. The US Army corps of
engineers Alaska district began operating the the Moose Creek dam
at 7:45am Saturday. The Moose Creek dam will be regulating the
chena river so flows do not exceed 12 thousand cubic feet per
second in downtown Fairbanks. Downstream flood effects on the
chena river also depend on flow conditions in the Tanana
river... little chena river... and local drainages.

* Expected impacts... water from the chena river will flow over some
of the lowest lying banks near the Moose Creek dam and in the
Steamboat Landing subdivision. These conditions are expected to
continue through Tuesday. In addition... river navigation through
the Moose Creek dam is unavailable during operations.

Farther downstream... the chena river in Fairbanks is at a level of
8.9 feet. This is causing minor nuisance flooding in Fairbanks.
The bike path along the chena river at the Cushman and barnette
street bridges has several feet of water over it. The bike path
under the peger Road bridge is flooded with several feet of water
as well.

Additionally the water level is only 3 feet below the barnette
street bridge and 6 feet below the peger Road bridge. This will
make these bridges impassable for many river boats. The water
level through Fairbanks will remain fairly constant through
Tuesday while the Moose Creek dam is in operation.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Recreational users should be prepared for high water which may cause
levels to rise out of bank in places. Watch for an increase in logs
and other debris in the river. Additionally... an increase in the
level of groundwater table is expected.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated... or
ponding of water is occurring or is imminent. Do not attempt to
travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a
few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

Special Statement
Statement as of 6:29 AM AKDT on August 30, 2015

... Frost possible in the Fairbanks area the next few nights...

The airmass over the Tanana Valley will remain cold enough to
support widespread frost in the Fairbanks area through Tuesday
night. Cloud cover... wind..and showers have prevented the
temperature from falling below freezing in most locations the past
several days. The clouds and shower activity are forecast to
gradually diminish over the next few days. Breaks in the clouds
tonight and Monday will likely allow temperatures to fall to near
freezing... and it is possible for some valley locations to experience
a hard frost if temperatures drop into the upper 20s. Frost is
likely on Tuesday night as well... before much warmer air moves
into the Tanana Valley on Wednesday.
