About this product, the Experimental Forecast of Reference Evapotranspiration for Short Canopy Vegetation:
The ET forecasts provided on this page are the expected amount of daily reference evapotranspiration in hundredths of an inch for the next 7 days and a total reference of evapotranspiration for the 7 day period.
The ET forecast is calculated by standardizing on the tall canopy vegetation (50 cm full cover alfalfa) algorithm.
The ET forecasts are calculated using NWS forecasts of temperature, dewpoint, wind, and cloud cover.
This product will be issued in conjunction with our zone forecasts, usually between 3-4 am and then again between 3-4 pm, local time.
