Under construction is this new graphic for visualizing river runoff of the western USA.

FOR OUR FAVORITE RIVERS, presented in the attachment is the BEST/CURRENT forecast of river runoff that the United States NOAA National Weather Service River Forecast Centers(Colorado Basin)(CBRFC) can offer using all available resources FOR THE NEXT TEN DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The NOAA "model" forecasts a future flow based upon many parameters. The most significant parameters are plotted in this graphic representing geographically weather conditions across a broad expanse of the western USA.

The most significant parameters of the NOAA model are regional precipitation(blue), regional temperatures(red), regional freezing elevation(purple) and resulting runoff cfs(black/gray). There are lessor significant parameters for future consideration.

I'm truly amazed at how the attached graphic translates from local/regional forecasting weather forecasts. In other words, there is a direct translation geographically of short and long term weather forecasts into geographic runoff predictions. Naturally, as expected, but visually stunning. This will become more obvious.

Which ones ya looking for?

Unfortunately, the National Weather Service doesn't do forecasting for all gages and only the Colorado Basin River Forecast Center presents their data in such a way that I can poach and produce these detailed graphs.

Personally, my favorite and I think the easiest way to access the most commonly queried forecast hydrographs is via the following hyperlink:

https://www.downriverequip.com/river_flow_report.cfm

I suggest clicking on both the Flow Report and Flow Report Summary.

In column 34 for most rows is the symbol "3" which will link you directly to the forecast hydrograph for that river.
