Today’s forecast for Oroville dam water heights
oroville_dam_height_forecast_17_2_16

*WARNING: The figures are estimates, we cannot say conditions will be safe, use your common sense, understand what authorities are saying in the area*

As expected, Wundeground precipitation figures over the past few days were grossly over estimated. We expect the over estimation of rainfall to continue.

Even if Wunderground precipitation figures are accurate for the coming days, we see no issues at Oroville dam ie no need for the emergency spillway to be used, even if the main spillway continues to operate at 100,000 cfs.
