MF Peak yet?

Headed up to the MF in a few days. It looks to me like perhaps the peak flow has come and gone. Boundary creek is open, it's been quite warm lately, and there's some rain in the forecast right now. Anyone care to speculate if there's another spike on its way that will send it back over 6 feet soon? The forecasted flow has the level starting to drop even more next week- holding at 5.5 at the moment. Thanks!

As you can see in 2009 there were multiple peaks and valleys, however there was more snow pack, but it also doesnt show the precipitation in 2009. I give you a 50/50 chance of it peaking over 6 feet, only for the next peak, if there even is one. That rain may help. I have a trip June 3rd so Ive been eyeing it as well... What do you think shell be flowing then?

My guess/prediction, its going to be a mild peak IF it peaks again. Up to maybe 5. But who knows what mother nature will throw at us. Im launching June 6.

I launch tomorrow. We have a couple of cool days, then some warming. I think it will hover near the 5 foot range for my trip. I really hope the Selway holds and has a fun flow for my Wednesday launch. It's dropping FAST right now, but I think it's been very cool up there and I'm hoping the forecasted warming trend will increase flows.
