River conditions

The February 15th water levels are basically at base flow for this time of year.  There has been little change in the past week.  The Clarkdale gage registers 79 cfs and the Cornville gage shows 43.  Record low for Clarkdale on this date was 72 in 1972 and 30 for Oak Creek in 1990.

High temperature is forecast for 68 degrees.  The normal high for this date (at Montezuma Castle) is 65 degrees.  The record high was 79 in 1991.

Water temperature is expected to continue to be in the mid to upper 40-degree range.  It will be partly cloudy with possible light upstream winds.
