A statistical method is presented for developing an up-to-date streamflow forecasting formulas. The primary purpose being to assist the streamflow forecasters to prepare their data in a logical procedure with close checks as the complicated process of multiple regression development proceeds. Such a procedure enables the operator to detect any shift in the relationships and make corrections. A series of 9 tables illustrate the procedure.
