This study investigates streamflow dynamics across contrasting climatic regions, focusing on arid Arizona, near-average California, and wet Michigan. The analysis integrates streamflow data from both USGS observational records and National Water Model forecasts for select stations within these regions. By examining these datasets, the study aims to provide insights into the hydrological behavior of diverse environments, elucidating the impacts of varying climatic conditions on streamflow patterns. Understanding these dynamics is essential for informed water resource management strategies tailored to the specific needs and vulnerabilities of each region.
