We're still aways from half melt at Banner when the flow usually peaks and outlooks are for a peak of less than 5'.
Plus night temps above freezing aren't forecast to start until Friday.

NOAA flow predictions on the Middle Fork are the worst I have seen anywhere. So they are showing 3 feet by the 16th according to that graph. I think it will be 3 feet by tomorrow. 50 degrees on Banner summit right now and warmer every day.
For some reason their little lime green line goes down for the next few days???????? What is that about? Warmest temps we have had in three weeks and it's going to go down?
But what do I know. It's finally acting like spring and I think we are going to hit it just right. If I get stuck I will just drink beer until we can float again.
Over 4 by the weekend, especially Sunday. IMO.
