A percentile is a value on a scale of one hundred that indicates the percent of a distribution that is equal to or below it. For example, on the map of daily streamflow conditions a river discharge at the 90th percentile is equal to or greater than 90 percent of the discharge values recorded on this day of the year during all years that measurements have been made. In general,
The flow category "Low" indicates that the estimated streamflow is the lowest value ever measured for the day of the year. Similarly, the flow category "High" indicates that the estimated streamflow is the highest value ever measured for the day of the year.
"Not ranked" indicates that a flow category has not been computed. Common reasons for a "Not ranked" category are insufficient historical data or no current streamflow estimates.
