Mike’s Take – Sep 25

Good Morning,

One thing jumps out this morning – a cut in the NWRFC 10 day forecast:


This cut showed up yesterday and I will be watching today’s (noonish eastern time) for confirmation.  The change, 500 aMW to 1000 aMW, is material and extends across the 10 day horizon – and also departs from Monday’s STP forecast.   Apparently BPA does not need the water and perhaps this change simply reflects their plans for next week.  GCL has been passing inflows and doing a small draft this week:


No change in weather outlooks, mild in the northwest and significant cooling the south.  I’ll update this post after today’s 10 day is posted.
