The release from Cannonsville was increased yesterday and the flow at Stilesville is 1,380 cfs.  There are a few spots you can wade at this level but be careful.  The increased release is probably to help mitigate the potential spill.  Both Cannonsville and Pepacton are getting close to 100% capacity.  Today sounds like every other day for the last two weeks.  The morning will be cloudy.  We have a chance of afternoon thunderstorms.  Rainfall should be 1/4″, wind 5 – 10 from the south, high of 83 degrees.  We may see some additional rain overnight.  The increased release will cool the lower West a bit.  Today sounds like another bwo day with some sulphurs and isonychias in the mix.

Moon floats are always a good time!
