While your graphs are pretty what do you base this on? A heat wave will change all of this, a cold wet spell like Colorado is experiencing will change this, both combined will really change this. So what do you base this prediction on and what guarantees from "mother nature" do you have?

NOAA is the forecasting agency (the source link is at the top of the page and their logo is watermarked on the chart).

Sorry my apologies I thought this was your forecast. But as a whitewater kayaker who depends on river flow info I have found the forecasts for only a few days to be inaccurate so my faith in a forecast for months is skeptical at best. We shall see.....
