Colorado River Basin 10 day forecasts for April

I will be dumping here on this thread basin forecasts generated from data provide by the Colorado Basin River Forecast Center.

The graphs detail the flow of the last 10 days and the forecast flow of the next ten days. Also included are past precipitation and future forecast of precipitation. Temperatures are included as both regional past and future Fahrenheit degrees and freezing elevation.

I activated today automated updating of SWE, WYTD precip and basin flow percents of average.

A kool thing about the data provide by the Colorado Basin River Forecast Center is "Validation".

This attached report integrates with a daily flow report on the Down River website. Anyway, by accessing via symbol "3" in the hypermatrix a hydrograph will appear from the CBRFC.

Since I'm just killing time, at the top of this hydrograph is an option called something like "Validation". Clicking on Validation presents a really kool graphic which defines their predicted flows going backward overtime. Yesterdays, vs the day before vs the day before in different colors. Soooo, how good is the forecast center doing, well they spill there guts so that you will know.

It was such a beautiful day here on the front range that I was out for a mountain bike ride. Nice ride but bummer I missed it. This is the link to register for the webinars for other people who might be interested.

Experimenting with printing "letter" size to see if it will open on a cell phone. When plotted full size(A1 paper) the graphic will not open on smart phone.
