Our new distributed short-term model breaks up large basins into smaller sub-units to capture variance in basin characteristics. We released an update to the dashboard map to display which sub-basins are contributing to flow at forecast points.
When the flow forecast point is selected, every sub-basin within its drainage area will be highlighted blue.
When a single sub-basin is selected, scroll down to view weather inputs and surface observations averaged across just the selected area.
Coming soon - average weather across the drainage area: next up we plan to display weather averaged over the drainage basin’s area for each flow forecast point. Stay tuned for updates!
