Delaware River Report / Conditions September 28, 2016

Sep 28, 2016 Comments Off by

The West Branch flow is down slightly and the Cannonsville release is 568 cfs.  This keeps the river at a good level for wading and floating.  Today should be another day of clear skies but we should see some rain moving in overnight.  Weatherunderground has rain in the forecast through the weekend.  Most of the precipitation should soak into the ground.  The cloud cover will be nice after another day of sun yesterday.  Hopefully the clouds and light rain help keep the olives and the isonychias on the surface of the water longer.  The wind will be up a bit today gusting around 11 mph from the south.  The leaves are still on the trees so there are still quite a few protected areas where the wind wouldn’t be noticeable.
