Yeah, that's the same as the one I had just posted:

They didn't help.
The problem was that there was a couple feet of snow, whereas NOHRSC predicted no snow. And the terrain on the way to Johnson Lake is the same as at the Johnson Lake station. I've had good estimates from NOHRSC, but what good is it (for backpackers) if it's so unreliable?

Sounds good. Haven't tried that yet.

This appears to be another presentation of the NOHRSC/NOAA data.
You (J ney) haven't mentioned going past Vernon, but in case you're thinking of that, most of Jack Main Canyon is probably knee-deep in water around now and Falls will be dangerous to cross. See http://yosemitenews.info/forum/read.php?3,66444,66484 for last year.
I do find the CDEC river flow plots useful for that, e.g.: http://cdec.water.ca.gov/jspplot/jspPlo ... ies=cdec01
