Upper Colorado Mainstem Outlook

Above normal temperatures during March melted snow causing above average streamflow. Above normal precipitation compensated for much of this effect, however, keeping most forecasts nearly the same as those issued last month. Forecasts dropped in the upper reaches of the Colorado which only received average precipitation last month.

April-July streamflow forecasts for the Upper Colorado Mainstem are as follows:

Colorado River (mainstem):
Below Average

Gunnison River:
Near Average

Dolores River:
Below Average
