The current rain event is basically over at this point. Dry air and clear skies are filling in across the Colorado Plateau and adjacent western Colorado, with the moisture having for the most part moved to the south and east. Next week will be much drier. Might get a few inches bump in the lake level after all is said and done, but the effects will not be very long lasting. The gauges indicate this was basically a small blip in the hydrograph on the main stem Colorado and the Green rivers. Decent short, sharp flood spikes did occur on the Dirty Devil and San Juan rivers, but those are much lower volume catchments comparatively, and so this goes into the category of flash flooding, not sustained runoff. What this will serve to do is make the water pretty muddy throughout much of the upper lake over the next 3-5 days.

Rain does not impact the lake.... Like pissing in a coors light can.
We heard you the first time.... we just all chose to ignore it.

Also yes small picture you're right not immediately... big picture though is it greatly impacts soil moisture going into winter as well as replenishing underground aquifers which then leads to greater run offs in the spring.

But thank you for the negativity very helpful.
