Poudre power?

Hi guys.
Rock Report say Poudre is at 3.5 this morning. Like the guy who posted it said, Sweet!
BUT, does anybody have any idea or mystical-powered guess as to what the flow will be Sunday? (I am new to Colorado and am unfamiliar with the ways of the Poudre)
Can I reasonably assume that it will still be at at least 3 feet Sunday? Or will it likely plunge?
I want to paddle Sunday, and if the Poudre is at 3 or higher, that would be my choice. But below 3, I'd just head down to the Ark.
If it is at 3 or better does anybody want to go Sunday morning? Like a 10 a.m. put-in, for maybe Upper Mish., Lower Mish and Poudre Park?

Thanks for any beta or guesses.

My crystal ball says you're FARK'ED!! j/k

My guess is that it's not going up anymore since the weather isn't supposed to rain too much more the rest of the week.

Wouldn't be surprised to see flows stay up all weekend. 4th of July; they'll be releasing decent water to up the commercial traffic on many rivers.

Long Draw, Chambers, Joe Wright, Laramie Tunnel, and Seaman (sp?).

I would be very (pleasantly) surprised if flows stay up above 3ft through the weekend, or even through tomorrow for that matter.
