Saw that and ABOUT BLOODY TIME!

Unfortunately further south (the Rogue) just 'sprinkles.' Only question is how much of that is just going to 'soak in' and not really produce much in the way of run off.

Long rain (down here) about a month ago and river 'spiked' for less than 24 hours then back to 'same old-same old.'

Well it looks like we can skip the rain here in the Rogue Valley.

Another string of days in the low 80's coming at us.

Well, it got pushed back a bit, but both NWS and Wunderground are predicting rain for at least Monday (Columbus Day) night through Thursday, with "rain" forecast for Tuesday and Thursday, lighter precip on Wednesday. Cooler temps too. Yay!

Chance we may gets some here in the Rogue Valley ..

come this Tuesday. Couple of days of 'showers' then back to 'same 'ol-same 'ol.

Only thing different is the 'high's for the day are dropping quickly and the low's are getting lower. Will be some time before we see anything in the 30's but SE Oregon is already there.

First light is 0700 and it will be darned chilly; heavy shirt and a coat/hat will be needed. Only in the lower 40's but with the high humidity it really cuts!

Curious as to how much water is needed to "blow out" the NU?

I'll see if for the first time on Thursday... just curious what to expect

a whole lot more than is forecast between now and Thursday - of course, subject to dam(n) fluctuations for reasons unknown to mere mortals

Depends upon what the 'surrounding' ground is like.

NU, until you get to darned near Roseburg, is flowing through solid rock (volcanic) and Forrest. So, assuming a long run of dry weather like now, it will take at least 3/4" to have much of an impact. Even then, dry to follow, the 'spike' could be over in 36 hours. Under 1" probably less than that.

Oh, on that 'volcanic' rock; you'll find out just how good a wader you are! Stuff is hard as diamonds and slippery (because of the hardness) as you'll find any place in the World. :eek:

Bring a wading staff; you'll need one. :smokin:

More than an inch in forecast

NWS forecast is for rain to start tonight (10/14) and continue through the week, with 1/4 "to 1/2" inch Tuesday and Wednesday, lesser amounts the rest of the week. Needless to say, any amount is good in this droughty year. Hopefully should be enough rain this week to get fish moving...
