This is a river level prediction tool from NOAA. Iwas impressed because, for the river I was watching, it forecast way more water than I was guessing. It appears to be right so far, and I’ll keep an eye on it over the next few days. It seems especially useful for planning trips on unfamiliar rivers.

Follow up, the river crested when predicted by this tool. 3 days out the tool predicted the river would crest just under flood stage, it ended up cresting a little over flood stage.

The important thing was it allowed me to understand 3 days out that the trip wasn't going to happen. I wouldn't have predicted the levels correctly myself as I didn't know the river very well.
