WESTERN RIVERS 10 DAY FORECAST-May

In this thread I will be posting 10 day forecasts for western rivers. This report replaces a report that was specific the Colorado River basin. The new report expands its coverage to select western rivers of greatest interest to the general rafting community.

The data is sourced from the River Forecast Offices of the National Weather Service.

I hope to have debugged by tomorrow data exchange issues resulting in the preventing of the decoding of forecast precip, temp and freezing elevation normally plotted on the Colorado Basin graphs.

If I'm reading the two charts for Westwater and Cisco correctly (and I may be missing something), your predictions have an additional 4K in flow at Cisco at the spike between 5/1 and 5/2. The Westwater gauge is at the state line approximately 20 miles or so above Cisco and I'm wondering where that additional 4K would come from between those two points.

DoStep,

Thanks for the opportunity to discuss the forecast hydrograph array. The hydrograph array is intended to promote the understanding and stimulate the discussion of western river status and dynamics.

Most of the extra 4K of flow is coming from the San Miguel via the Doloras. The Cisco gauge is below the confluence with the Doloras so the Colorado Cisco gauge includes that water.

The 10 day forecast hydrograph array is geographically arranged hence the Doloras gauge at Cisco is adjacent/below the Colorado gauge at Cisco. As the hydrograph array matures I will better define the geographic river basins with dark borders and perhaps arrows.

If I had more space I'd include the Doloras at Bedrock(~1K cfs) and San Miguel(~3K cfs) at Uravan gages. Including these gages would emphasis that you can run a lot of miles of high quality river right now without waiting for McPhee to spill.
