We were hit with a storm yesterday afternoon but the system looks to be in fine shape here in Hancock.  The West Branch flow barely bumped and remains in good shape for wading and floating.  The Beaverkill flow bumped to 589 cfs so the lower East Branch and Mainstem will rise a bit today.  We have a slight chance of an brief afternoon storm today but the probability looks less than 50% and the amount of rain should be negligible.  There is quite a bit of fog on the water this morning and some clouds hanging around.  Winds should stay under 10 mph.  Wunderground doesn’t show much sunshine in the forecast so it looks like a decent olive day.  We’ll still see the sulphurs on the upper WB and hopefully the weather pushes the Cahills and Isonychias.
