It is important for Kansans to understand how streamflow relates to precipitation and temperature in Kansas, as streamflow variability has implications for water resources, ecosystem health, and many other activities. Streamflow across eight stream gauges in the Smokey Hills Watershed is positively correlated with precipitation and negatively correlated with maximum summer temperature, most prominently in late spring and throughout summer. With climate variability and longer-term changes, it will continue to be paramount to document these relationships.
