Hurricane Ida
« on: August 29, 2021, 11:53:34 AM »
Looks like hurricane Ida is going to give us a pretty good shot of precipitation this week.
I haven't had a chance to see what they are predicting for river stages.



The only fisherman you should try to be better than.

I watched the forecast change. For Red Lion tomorrow is 4.87" on Weather Underground. Is that possible? It was 4" then down to 3.83 now 4.87. I can recall 2" rains. Airville (Muddy Creek) 5.10" Williamsport 5.10"

Was looking around and it looks like we could be getting 2.55" which isn't to bad.
Will take the river to about 7' which isn't to bad.

Phil looks like your area 4.47" according to NWS.
But river wise it looks like you could be lake fishing.
Some area is probably going to be an over achiever.
Stay dry!

Speaking of Dry...Tomorrow bank fishing for you?

Just checked my rain gauge in the yard....4.75 inches since last night when I emptied it before bedtime.

Another 2-4 inches predicted for the rest of the day.

Glad there is very little wind associated with it...so far.

Wow Dry it sounds like you are getting hit hard!!
I just figure I will empty my gauge after supper. I will post my total at some point.
Anyway appears the river is going to be out of commission for a little while.

3 more inches since I last checked...total 7.75 inches

Looks like it might continue for another hour if the radar is correct.

Final gauge total - 9 inches   :o

I had a river running around my garage and over my driveway into the yard. Vacuuming a little water in my basement but it is slowing down.

Boy Am I glad that is over.

Dry
That's a lot of rain...you was one of the over achievers. Glad it's stopped and you have the basement under control.
Picked 1.50" up here when I checked the gauge at 6:00pm. So we lucked out.

That's a decent amount Phil. How bad was the flooding?

Locally it looks like Marietta is up 9.5 feet. Conowingo max per day normal is 80000 cu ft per sec. Right now 126000 cu ft per sec per spill hotline. Flood stage for Harrisburg is 17' and now 11' and rising.

The river up here is a couple feet high, but it has been really muddy. I think they have to be releasing water from a dam somewhere. Less than a foot of visibility.
I been lazy, I should be getting out more with this cooler weather.
I did get out yesterday but it was so muddy it wasn't even enjoyable. Managed to catch a nice chunk yesterday 14-15" along with a few dinks on a black crankbait. Wasn't doing much with the Ned.

Conowingo just returned to "normal" One thing I noticed recently is understanding the local rain contribution can be difficult. Specifically when Muddy Creek is up there are no local gauges to meter that. Another observation is the contribution to the Juniata from Raystown. Generally Newport area watershed drains in a day or two. right now we are experiencing steady flow from raystown.
