Nebraska Drought and Low-Flow Stream Watch

This map (from USGS's National Drought Watch Web site) 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 are provisional and subject to change. Nebraska is also providing weekly drought updates with details about measurement and reconnaissance activities.
