Abstract: The paper briefly describes hydrologic forecasting techniques that are being used today and raises issues that should be addressed as new hydrologic forecast systems are developed and implemented. The issues represent concerns that will become more important as operations begin to take advantage of some of the new technology that is becoming available to make better forecasts. A list of references on hydrologic forecasting is provided.
