the weather idiots say we are to get 2.5 inches over the next three days, less as you go further north.

looks like the SE PA and South central streams could out fish the Northern streams this weekend !

Yeah, I mentioned this in the Erie thread, but there was a ways to go then.

TS Karen's remants have reformed as a pretty classic Nor-easter. Pretty weak from a pressure standpoint, but lots of moisture still associated with it, and it's pretty much gonna stall off the Delmarva, before actually retrograding back towards Hatteras and dissapating. The whole time it'll be wrapping moisture towards us for a few days here.

Not cold enough for snow, obviously. But it's gonna be a wet few days, wetter as you go further east and especially south. Rain bands will move from east to west.

If this were January instead of October, it'd be a blockbuster!

We are getting hammered with rain here in the southeast. Lots of black and blue dots showing up on the USGS streamflow data map.

Was somewhat unsure of how much rain would materialize out of this, but we got slammed in Lebanon County last night. 3 inches or so. Furnace Hills streams were rockin' when I drove over them this morning.

Yeah, streams are rockin here too. I was late for work cause my usual route was flooded, and that hasn't happened since Irene and that followup tropical storm.

Too bad we couldn't push this far enough north and west for Erie! Nice, cold rain and lots of it.

Way past the streamers now here in the Carlisle area. The trout will be hiding in the woods as the Yellow Breeches starts moving over flood stage this afternoon.

The Conestoga River precipitation graph on the USGS site shows 6" of rain since yesterday (Thursday) midday. I would say she is blown out!

I live on the PA line in Maryland near the Gunpowder and while we got only 1" of rain in August and 1" in September we have gotten 3-1/2" from this storm and more to come over the next three days. Some of the brown trout were already starting to take on their spawning colors, but they had not really started to move upstream due to the low clear water conditions. My somewhat educated guess is with the increased flows it will get them get moving. Streamer time indeed. The interesting thing as far as I am concerned is that I am seeing some of the largest fish I have ever seen in the upper Gunpowder due to the recent larger and slightly warmer: 58 degree water releases from the Pretty Boy dam and they are not browns. I have seen a number of rainbows well over the 20" size range which are probably holdover Freshwater Institute fish that were stocked downstream over the past several years. They are running up with the brown tout, but why they are is somewhat of a mystery. I have noticed a few small rainbows with par marking in the Gunpowder recently so maybe we are getting some rainbow recruitment for the first time in many years.

it is tipping it down here in Wilmington.

a little bit too much. i'm guessing the streams i wanted to fish in the morning will be blown out too.

but hopefully this water is going to give us 3-4 weeks of good fishing..

Way too much of a good thing here in Adams County last night and today with flooding and pooled water in low areas here in town. We need a break for a few hours!
