This map was created from provisional data that has not been checked or verified for accuracy. Some data on this map comes from sources other than Ventura County Watershed Protection District. Ventura County Watershed Protection District has no control over the accuracy and type of data transmitted. This map was created solely for the convenience of the County and related public agencies. The County does not warrant the accuracy of this map, and no decision involving a risk of economic loss or physical injury should be made from the data available on this site.
Weather map shows the temperature (deg F) in upper left, Relative Humidity (%) in lower left. Wind speed (mph) is in the center circle and peak wind (i.e. Gust) is in the box to the right of the wind speed. The wind direction is the arrow showing the direction that the wind is blowing.
Buoy temperature is the water temperature (deg F) of the surface water temperature.
The snow depth shows the current measurement of snow depth (inches). During recent snow fall the gage may read high due to snow stuck to the sensor.
