A discussion and comparison of two basic theories of water supply forecasting, one based primarily on rainfall measurements and the other based primarily on snow survey water content measurements. The 1947-57 period of years is used for comparison. A close similarity of forecast accuracy of both methods is illustrated by graphs. The conclusion states that a combination of the two independent variables would produce a more accurate forecast. Reference is made to a similar paper presented in the 1958 snow conference, WSC Paper No. 328-58.
