Actually Brian, I think it is "If you row center at Lava, THEN we have an El Nino". Looking forward to results.

I look up the weather for the Marble Canyon zip code for the winter of 98 (last big El Nino). Precipitation data is included.

Check NPS site for google avg temps at Phantom

Buckman...that data is mostly for locations at 6000'+ or 7000'+ elevation. The Waheap data is more applicable, as it is on Lake Powell at about 3700' elevation. Lee's Ferry sits at 3210'. When I first looked at that link, I was a bit nervous for my Feb 2016 trip. The daily lows in Feb for the first two locations listed were in the 20's and high in the 30's and 40's. But, then I noticed that the elevation for the weather readings were 6500' and 7200', a big difference from river level in the canyon. The Waheap readings had highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's. I would expect canyon (mostly in the shade) temps to be around the Waheap readings. The precip data is helpful, though.

That's an excellent point. Elevation of the river level will always be more accurate. And in most cases warmer than higher elevations.

When the storms come through, it can be cold and wet (I've been snowed on a few times down there). In between storms it it usually wonderful weather in the 60's - high 70's. You will probably have a couple of storms and great weather as well. I always looked at the satellite photos of the Gulf of Alaska to try and get an idea of what was coming down the pike. It worked for me.
