Here are the notes from this week’s webinar via the Colorado Climate Center. Here’s a preview:

All
of the major
reservoirs in
the UCRB
have experienced rapid storage
increases
in
June.
Daily inflows into Flaming
Gorge, Blue
Mesa, and
Lake
Powell are
all well
above their averages
for
this time of year.
Inflows into
Navajo
have dipped below their
average
for
this
time
of
year.
Lake
Powell has
seen
large
increases in
volume
and
is
now at 80 of
average. It is
projected
that Lake Powell’s elevation
will continue to
rise
through
late
July — projected
elevation
levels would
be
the 
highest
they’ve
been
since
October 2001.
