NOAA launches Central Valley Temperature Mapping and Predictions (CVTEMP)
This NOAA website is the public interface for modeled and observed water temperature and flow data for the Sacramento River associated with Shasta Reservoir, Shasta and Keswick Dam operations, and meteorological conditions. A primary input and assumption of the models is based on the operational conditions forecasted for Shasta and Keswick reservoirs generated by USBR. These forecasts are updated over time and composed of different scenarios of hydrological (dry or wet) and meteorological (warm or cool) conditions. Model outputs from each scenario are displayed.
This BETA website can display:
• Watershed Model
• Reservoir Model
• River Model (Temp Profiles, Mortality, Historic and Scenarios)
