A chart for forecasting the April-June discharge of the Swan River of the Flathead River Basin in Montana was prepared after statistical treatment of variables. The principal variables used were seasonal distribution of precipitation during the accumulation period and mean temmperatures during December and March. The chart involves precipitation weighted as to time of fall and the mean temperatures of December and March The chart is designed to forecast only the total April-June discharge of the Swan River.Discussion by Joseph Kittredge.
