With regards to the forecast (off the record), there's a nice low that's sitting over the area that's really tapping a tropical air mass (think from Baja to hawaii). Dave, this is much bigger than a monsoon and the potential exists for a really widespread heavy precipitation -- definately something to bring the mainstem up these levels. There's only one parameter off -- huge amounts of forecasted rainfall. It's already started to develop over the southern portion of utah and we'lll see how long this stuff sticks aroud for and which drianages get the brunt of it. Either way it's going to be a really exciting couple of days -- and maybe not the best flows to cut your teeth on westwater. As the weekend nears, if you guys have specific questions about the forecast feel free to call the office 801-524-5130. I am here 'till 11:00 PM tonight and tomorrow evening. We'll be staffed continuously until this stuff moves out of te area.
