Lower Wisconsin River at Spring Green

Memorial Day Weekend is looking nice. Real nice.

Water levels came down last weekend and have stayed within reasonable levels – a far cry from where we were last year. And the year before that. And the year before that. Aaaand the year before that.  This year they’ll likely stay in the 10kcfs range (which is very near the 100 year average) so sandbars will be pretty widely available.

Since it’s Memorial Day Weekend there will be storms, as is tradition. But, they’re isolated (i.e. those annoying ones that pop up here and there but mostly harmless) and the total rain from Saturday through Monday is currently estimated at .05″ with both Saturday and Monday mostly sunny. Add to that, temperatures will top out in the very high 80s all weekend.

All in all, it’s gonna be good. But bring a rain coat.
