"Cloudy conditions have obscured views of the volcano in satellite and web camera images, but elevated surface temperatures at the summit and intermittent, low-level ash emissions have been observed during brief breaks in the weather.
Seismic activity remains elevated at levels above background and over the past 24 hours has been characterized by occasional short-duration tremor bursts, likely associated with the low-level ash emissions.
The drifting, remnant ash cloud from the energetic phase of the eruption on Sunday and Monday has dispersed and there are no National Weather Service aviation or ashfall advisories in effect at this time.
Although the intensity of the eruption has diminished, it is possible for conditions to change at any time and more significant ash emissions may resume with little to no warning. Pauses of days to weeks are common during eruptive episodes at Pavlof. AVO will continue to monitor the volcano closely."
