Temperatures dipped down into the low teens last night - providing good weather for ice skating! Fortunately our area rivers and streams still have a good volume of water.
The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls registered a flow of about 670 cubic feet per second on Monday, January 30, 2017. This is above the average flow of 280 cfs on this date over 101 years of research. The maximum flow on January 30 was recorded at at 2510 cubic feet per second back in 1990; the lowest recorded flow on January 30 was just 74 cfs in 1981.
The water temperature dipped from a high of about 41 degrees last Monday to just 33 degrees Fahrenheit this morning.
It will be interesting to see what Punxsutawney Phil has to say about the rest of the winter on Thursday morning….we are expecting some snow over the next few days.
