The NWS introduces a new website to improve access to water data and forecast information

Access to water data and water prediction services from the National Weather Service is now easier.

The agency has unveiled a new experimental website, called the National Water Prediction Service, as the gateway to the agency’s water data and forecast information.

For instance, forecasters say if you live along a stream or a creek and a heavy rainfall event is forecast for your area, the National Water Model will let you know if water from these streams and creeks may top their banks and flood in your immediate area.

Whether someone needs the latest river flows for boating, determining how much water is available for dam operations, or taking protective action ahead of an upcoming major flood, this new water website will provide everyone with the information they need to make the best possible decisions.
