Today’s expected Wx: Mostly sunny, with a high near 75. Light and variable wind becoming south southeast 5 to 9 mph in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 15 mph.
Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 48. West southwest wind around 6 mph becoming northwest in the evening.
Message from Tillema: In case anyone asks the bulk of the flow is from above Little South.
Little South does have water flowing out of Little South, but it’s
definitely on the low side. But the Rustics are good to go (Lower was
fun today), though I hate hearing that for May 13…
I’m really hoping we start getting more temps below freezing up in the
mountains, though the forecast does not look promising for that. The
only snotel(or CAIC) site consistently hitting freezing at night is Long
Draw with most of them hitting 35 for a low and all around 55 for a
high. If this keeps up our peak could be way early.
