One of the Local weather guesser's last nit sez the lake is gonna hit 628' above sea level by next Sunday, after the next rain event this coming weekend, with NO...NONE ...Not ANY.... ZERO flood gate release's until the flooding on the Mississippi River is resolved from as far north as Minneapolis & the Ohio River Valley and all the flooding rivers around St Louis have drained out below disaster stage.... or parts of Lamar/Red River and Bowie County Texas. and the same area's of Oklahome & the ArkLaTex west Hope & Stamps and North Western Louisiana down thru Shreveport/Bossier/Monroe will go under water again like it did last Spring...leaving Lake Texoma with a only a 12' Rise cushion before Texoma goes over the 640' tall Spillway again for the 3rd time (or 4th time if you wanna count the 3" under topping in June '15 too) in less than 7 months, and become 35-50% larger than it it suposed to be, again.
Just for the record ....the Army Corps of Engineers - Lake Texoma Project, aka ACOE, property line around Lake Texoma is approx at 645' above sea level according to their markers & maps...and generally pretty accurate, but not always accurate to under a +/- 12" foot, with the Lake generally accepted as being 89,000 surface acres at 617' or Conservation Pool level.
