It's a wet day in Idaho!

It's been dumping rain here in Salmon, Idaho, for most of the day. A great lightning show and thick clouds rolled into town around 3 PM and was preceded by a drizzly morning. All this rain has the Middle Fork of the Salmon on a slight rise up to 2.05 feet at the Middle Fork Lodge (at 6:42 PM) from about 2.8 feet yesterday.

Middle Fork of the Salmon - big storm coming?

There's a storm hitting Idaho right now that has potential to blow the charts away. Check out this image of the North West River Forecasting Center's Middle Fork of the Salmon River gauge:

The Middle Fork of the Salmon, as far from what I can find, has never hit five-feet on the Middle Fork Lodge gauge in August. We'll just have to wait to see what happens... The NWRFC has been known to be off, but nevertheless things could get exciting.
