The first week of the New Year has provided cold temperatures, snow and rain showers that have added some much-needed volume to our rivers and streams. We’ve already experienced more snow and cold temperatures than all of the weeks of the winter of 2015-16 combined!

The Beaverkill at Cooks Falls registered a flow of about 400 cubic feet per second on Monday, January 9, 2017. This was just above the average flow of 345 cfs on this date over 101 years of research. The water temperature was just below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
