I would have guessed that the managing agency would have accurate information but I was wrong.
again sorry the wrong info
No worries. Would've been nice, but I can certainly live with 2K flows in July.
As for what it'll be in a couple of weeks, I predict it'll be about 1500.
See: ARKANSAS RIVER NEAR NATHROP, CO
Note the graph is semi-log - logarithmic scale on the flow, linear on the dates. With this kind of graph, lots of natural functions, such as the flow data, plot as a relatively straight line. So you can put a ruler on the graph and extend the line out to predict the flow. This doesn't take into effect the whims of water managers up at Twin Lakes, however.
Or I could be totally wrong.
