New England Drought Information

Current drought information for New England.

Current streamflow and ground water conditions are shown to help with understanding the extent and severity of the drought in New England. These maps are updated daily.

 

Map of New England 7-day average streamflow conditions

This is a static map, however the map from the USGS Water Watch website 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 to produce this map are provisional and have not been reviewed or edited. They may be subject to significant change.

Map of New England streamflow

This is a static map, however the map on the USGS WaterWatch page shows the current real-time streamflow conditions for New England stations.

The colors represent the real-time streamflow compared to percentiles of historical daily streamflow for the day of the year. Only streamgages with at least 30 years of record are used.

The data used are provisional and have not been reviewed or edited. They may be subject to significant change.
