That is a good question, and has yet to be answered. I tend to lean towards no. There is still a good amount of snow above timberline, and the snotel sites aren't quite melted out completely yet. There is still enough left to jump another 1000 cfs or more, but it's going to have to happen soon. My prediction is it will have to get really hot sometime in the next 10 days or so, otherwise it's just going to hold steady at this level until around the 4th of July.

Thanks for the input, either is good with me!

Looks like we are rolling into a week of warm & sunny.
Ark will peak over the 4 day weekend.

I think we had second peak on the 1st of July. Flows are dropping off and the forecast is for temps to hang about the same as right now through the weekend. Second peak would have been more substantial if the powers that be weren't holding so much back. Nearly 2000 flowing into Twin Lakes yesterday morning, but only 388 coming out.

I wouldn't personally declare a winner until monsoon season comes and goes. About 50% of the time we have a rain driven, flash flood peak in Browns....
