#yosemite daily photo, Yosemite waterfalls and the Merced River forecast to peak 5/12/14

Yosemite waterfalls and the Merced River forecast to peak 5/12/14

NWS is forecasting that the snow melt will peak around the 2nd week of May in Yosemite. This means the peaking of waterfalls and the Merced River in Yosemite on or about 5/12/14. They are usiing historical data.

If i were to guess i would had said weeks earlier as there is very little snow above 7,000' and this all depends on temperature. If we get real hot days say in the 80's for any period of time that snow is going to be gone.

Also look at how the level drops off the chart in July.
