River Temperature Still High – Monday 3-30

Posted on Monday, March 30th, 2015

River temperatures on Sunday remained high.  This is due to record warm daily temperatures and windy conditions.  The wind apparently stirred up Lake Natoma and and resulted in warmer water being released from Nimbus (see the Hazel temperature spike below).  As reclamation operator said, “wind is not our friend.”

Today we had some decent cloud cover, and tomorrow we expect cooler days and the cooler water from Folsom power bypass will show up.River Temps 3-30-15
