    Default Where do you find current water temps?

    I am looking for a link or 2 to find water temps in the pittsburgh pool and shenago lake. I had them but got a new comp and cant find them.

    Army core keeps records for a lot of things at most dam Dams. However Temp is not one of them.

    There used to be a link that showed temps for certain station on one page.

    Well they have updated things and this is the best I found. You will have to check them all for which ones give Temp.

    East Branch the corp tries to maintain the outflow temp the same as the surface temp of the dam. Being farther up north, their air is 10 degrees colder than Pittsburgh. Water temp over Easter last weekend was 45.

    The rivers are actually warmer than the dams at any point of time.

    Tygart lake air temp is 10 degrees warmer on avg than Pittsburgh.

    We all go by the 100 rule, If the air and water together equal to 100 or more its all good.

    As much as I want to go wakeboarding, 50 degree air and water is not going to cut it for me, or any other combination that equals 100 degrees for that matter.
