I'm curious how this works....I know the NRCS is predicting little runoff, much like you shua30, but I don't understand.
What tributary does Hannigan Meadows drain into? The Upper Arkansas River is sitting around 9" of moisture in it's snowpack and would certainly go higher than 300 cfs if it were to melt today. Is the upper Salt (White and Black) basin smaller than the upper Ark? I realize the mountains are smaller, but all that would really matter would be the moisture content and surface area drained...
do most of the feeder streams run into reservoirs?
I am always interested these sort of things would appreciate a little insight. Thanks.
