Delaware River Club: Upper Delaware River Report July 29, 2010

Jul 29, 2010 Comments Off by

With thunderstorms in the forecast for two of the next three days, we should get a break from the blazing summer sun.  Today’s forecast shows some clouds throughout the day with isolated thunderstorms during part of the afternoon. Temperatures for this weekend are going to be cooler than the upper 80’s and 90’s that we have been seeing. Cooler overnight temperatures and overcast skies can do wonders when it comes to cooling down the river. Until the Lower West Branch cools down a little, you are going to want to stay higher up on the west. Check water Temperatures often and if you are getting readings of 66-68 or higher, you are better off moving up the river in search of cooler water.
