Upper Delaware River Report — July 8, 2010

With thunderstorms in the forecast for the next three days, we should get a much needed break from the sweltering summer sun.  Today’s forecast shows some clouds throughout the day with isolated thunderstorms during part of the afternoon.  A nice rain could do wonders for the river and overcast skies should help to cool down temperatures.  Because of the recent heat wave, the most consistent action is going to be on the Upper West Branch, where temperatures have remained consistently cool.  On other parts of the river, look towards the morning and evening hours for more action.
