Raining on the front range...

Confluence is 1100 and on the way up. Trestle wave was awesome last year at 1800.

Weather service is calling for a flood warning with a significant amount of precip on the front range.

Boulder Creek is at 300 and rising and a flood watch has been issued, as this is the first significant precipitation event since the Four Mile Canyon fire.

I might get out this evening Tom. Got my gear in the car, just watching the gauges to see what is running. Probably make a call in the afternoon around 4.

Confluence is going, might get out for a quick surf session.

Doesn't look like the creeks are responding in the foothills, maily the plains.

What boulder creek gauge are you looking at? The standard orodell gauge is still at 80ish cfs. In town BC @ 75th was upper 200's.

Looked at the weather forecast and they are calling for 8-16 inches of snow above 7500 ft, which will perfectly prime the front range creeks to be ready to rock. Up to 18" above 10,000 ft, which is icing on top of the biggest snowpack cake in years! Hell yeah!

I was looking at the 75th street guage which is listed for BC on AW. My bad. I guess it peaked in between the time I checked it and when I posted. It must be mostly local runoff in town.
