illusion pot


New member
Hi, I'm with UNCC and we are thinking of doing illusion pot on Sunday. We are aware that it takes a while to drain and are wondering if people would recommend going down tomorrow?

Can't directly answer your question but, in case it helps, the west side of the Dales has been a lot drier than other parts of the country lately. Ony 4 mm of rain in a gauge near Clapham spread over the last three days. (Storm Ciaran beforehand didn't really drop that much rain, compared with elsewhere.)

Kayakers have a prediction tool for next couple of days, based on current levels & expected rainfall (look back to see last big rise was 1st Nov):

Wharfe showed very similar pattern to Ribble:

EA river levels includes rainfall over last hour / 6 hours / 24 hours (although do check times for last update):

They also have a rain gauge near Cold Cotes (you can scroll map for others):
