*Although the Smith River is located outside of both the Winnipesaukee
and Newfound River watersheds, the data collected at this unregulated 
(no man-made obstructions/dams) site has proven to be a relatively 
accurate indicator of the response of both to conditions related to
rainfall and snowmelt. 



This meteorological station is operated and maintained by
the United States Geological Survey (USGS). Most data relayed
by satellite or other telemetry have received little or no
review. Inaccuracies in the data may be present because of
instrument malfunctions or physical changes at the measurement
site, including backwater effects due to ice formation. Although
the data presented herein is intended to be an accurate
representation of actual conditions, it is presented for
informational purposes only and the user is cautioned to use it
at his/her own risk.
