East Fork Russian River10271 km24 mm805 AcreFt
The storage of Lake Mendocino on lign=right was ies=cd Acre Feet. The current forecast rainfall for the Lake Mendocino catchment area is 805 Acre Feet. Based on the hydrological conditions of the catchment, the forecasted rainfall could increase the storage of the lake by 0-%. You can also compare the precip volume with the current storage of the reservoir from CA DWR (plot or as a table)

The storage of Lake Sonoma on lign=right was ies=cd Acre Feet. The current forecast rainfall for the Lake Sonoma catchmennt area is 276 Acre Feet. Based on the hydrological conditions of the catchment, the forecasted rainfall could increase the storage of the lake by 0-%. You can also compare the precip volume with the current storage of the reservoir from CA DWR (plot or as a table)

Notes: The precipitation is derived from the NCEP GFS Model, which is on 0.25-degree latitude by 0.25-degree longitude grid. The size of some watersheds is too small to contain any gridded information. In this scenario, the areal precipitation of the polygon is assigned the value of the nearest grid point.
