looks like the Embudo is peaking this week..

Seems that this weekend will be the '07 peak for the Embudo- looks like it's 3.25 and climbing, and I bet this will blow out the remaining snowpack by early next week (Atom, Repa, correct me if I'm wrong). Since I'm local this weekend, I guess it's next year for me....

I hope not. weather forecast calls for below freezing every night up high: 7-Day Forecast for Latitude 36.06N and Longitude -105.54W (Elev. 10978 ft)

Plus, historically the Embudo has peaked a lot higher than the 300-400 cfs range: USGS Surface Water for New Mexico: Peak Streamflow

I made the amateur mistake of scheduling non-boating activities early Saturday morning so I can't make it down there with the weekend warriors. Anyone interested in paddling the Embudo Thursday/Friday or Sunday/Monday? Call or PM if you wanna get it while its good!

It will be huge by the weekend (over 3.5') unless it really, temps drop about 40 degrees from where they are. Its been in the high 60's, low 70's down in the valley for the last week, and its forcasted to get close to 80 in the next few days, so I'm guessing its going to get big.

I can paddle on Wednesday this week along with Monday & Tues of next week after work if you know the run well and can blaze things >2hrs.
