TX. weather

I see by the news you guys down there in TX. are finally getting some rain, and wind. Which nobody needs. Do you still have enough room to put all that rain they say you are getting?

From the last check I did , the lakes are still only 85%....
usually we'll take it all !!!

BUT, not great to get our yearly rainfall in one week

Wish us luck as tornado's are in the storm just southwest of us here in Fort Worth...

Yes GOOD LUCK....We just had tornado warnings last week...This is something that has just been happening in my area the past 10 years...I can never remember tornados as a kid, that was something that happened in the midwest...For sure the weather patterns are changing and in my opinion not for the better...

At this time we will take all of that rain we can get. In fact, we got a nice shower before daylight this morning.

The areas east of I-35 are in pretty good shape. However, we still need lots of rain west of there. The lakes in the hill country and west still are not any where near capacity. The water level at Lake Medina just west of San Antonio is 84 feet below capacity.

George is right, most of the rain and bad weather is north and east of where we need it. The major hill country lakes are still around 35% of capacity. It will probably take the remnants of a hurricane to fill them up.

I've only received about 3/4 inch of rain over the past 8 days. But OTOH also missed serious hail damage by just a few miles, my trees still have too few leaves as it is.

I kinda thought maybe you were getting drowned there in the Huston area.
I see we can't always believe the weather channel.

I hope it continues to drop rain down there where it is needed most, and forget about that severe stuff!

Johnboy
If you get to much water in your area, see if you can get it diverted a little more to the SW.

How all you TX. folks doing with the wind and all the rain and flooding that has been going on down there lately?

From what we see on the news it looks pretty tough down there in places.

Yeah, I'm a bit concerned about the weather out west myself. Heading out a week from tomorrow, destination Kerrville, Tx. Overnight stops in Fontainebleau State Park, Louisiana, and Stephen Austin State Park, Texas on the way. Weather forecast for Kerrville is 80% T-storms for next Wednesday, my scheduled arrival day.

Well,
the forecasters are the same 'scientist' that say we are heating up the planet to melt us in 100 years, but yet they miss TOMORROW

it was a LOT of rain in DFW, but thank GOODNESS that's all we had... and we NEVER wish rain away where I'm at...
even with all that, the lakes are still down

Good rain today, 1-3/4 inch, more on the way. On the one hand, we are just on the fringe of 'tornado alley'. And this is the wettest spring in at least 5 yrs. Both good things. But OTOH, all this rainfall will have very little impact on hill country lake levels.
