## 7-day Look Ahead Bloom Forecast

Below are pie charts describing the **probability of a cyanobacterial bloom**. The one on the left describes the predictions from two weeks ago, and the one on the right describes the latest prediction, for the coming week.
**Probability of occurrence (%) of an algal bloom from two weeks ago (left) and for the next 7 days (right).**

## Hotspot Analysis - Chlorophyll-a

This map shows you the latest estimates of **chlorophyll-a** from the Sentinel 2a satellite. Note that the color scale is normalized to highlight the hotspots in the image relative to yearly maxima and minima. The colorscale does not provide an indication of the absolute amount of chlorophyll-a in the water and should be interpreted as an “index” of chlorophyll-a.

## Hotspot Analysis - CyAN

This map shows you the latest estimates of the concentration of cyanobacteria (cells/ml) from the EPA CyAN program.

## Where we are in the season

This plot shows the **historical expectation for HAB risk** over the year. Use this chart to see where we are in the season (identified by the vertical red line).
**Harmful algal bloom risk over the year**.

## How rainy has it been?

We know that in general certain weather conditions promote the likelihood of HABs. Check this chart to see
how **wet** it is, relative to past years. This is simply adding up each day’s rainfall, for each year. If the red line is below the orange line, then this year is dryer than average.
**Precipitation at the lake compared to previous years**.

## How hot has it been?

We know that in general certain weather conditions promote the likelihood of HABs. Check this chart to see
how **hot** it is, relative to past years. This is simply adding up each day’s temperature, for each year. If the red line is above the orange line, this year is hotter than average.
