Chances of 6k depends on where you're at. 6k in RG, yeah, sure, could/will happen.
6k in Salida, perhaps...saw near 5k in 1995. How does the snowpack look in the collegiate peaks and near leadtown? More than 1995?
6k at Pine/Numbers? If so, the animals will be lining up in alphabetical order 2x2 if you know what I mean. Not too likely...I'll take bets.
Looking like a sicky-sicky runoff though. Psyched!
May be a long Ark season too: Aurora and Colo Spgs probably can't move their trans-basin water at high flows, and will be moving water post-runoff.
Here's how to search historical data:
CHeck the colo div of water website and find your gage:
If DWR gage click published tabular data. If USGS gage click time series: daily data. You can then pull tabular data, bring it into excel and sort/analyze.
Oh, and NPR, yeah dorky. Dan Drayer = king of dorks.
