Map of below normal 7-day average streamflow compared to historical streamflow for the day of year

Map legend for below normal 7-day average streamflow condition map

This map (from USGS's National Drought Watch website) shows the 7-day average streamflow conditions in hydrologic units. Thus, the map shows conditions adjusted for this time of the year. The colors represent 7-day average streamflow percentiles for the day of the year. USGS sites having at least 30 years of record are used. The data used to produce this map are provisional and have not been reviewed or edited. They may be subject to significant change.

This map (from USGS's WaterWatch page) shows the current real-time streamflow conditions for Vermont stations. The colors represent the real-time streamflow compared to percentiles of historical daily streamflow for the day of the year. Only streamgages with at least 30 years of record are used. The data used are provisional and have not been reviewed or edited. They may be subject to significant change.
