NOTE: Due to pier reconstruction at the Poughkeepsie USGS streamgage location, the gage has been temporarily removed. Another gage is available 2.8 miles upstream. Correlation of these observations with flood categories and impacts is currently unknown; use this data with caution.  Please click here for this alternate data.

We will update this link when the Poughkeepie gage is restored. 

NOTE: Gauge reading may be affected by ice. Forecast flows are unadjusted for ice.

NOTE: Forecasts for the Hudson River below Poughkeepsie are issued routinely year-round.
