The Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS), a new and major initiative of the National Weather Service (NWS), is a web-based suite of hydrological forecast products. These AHPS products take advantage of advances in hydrometeorology and hydrology and are available in an easily navigable, organized and consistent manner on the Internet to better serve NWS customers across the nation. Products available on the AHPS web pages include forecast hydrographs, probabilistic forecasts, historical crest data, flooding impact information, maps of gage sites, pictures of gage sites, inundation mapping, and links to forecast and observed precipitation data. These new products will enable emergency managers and other government officials, as well as individuals, to make informed decisions and take appropriate actions to mitigate the dangers of expected flooding.
