Hopefully, South Texas can get a good dosing of rainfall after the 4th of July. We don't need a BIG hurricane to do damage BUT we really need rain to fill up stock tanks and rise up some rivers to fill area lakes. Come on tropics!!!

All are FULL. Rivers can't take the outflow yet.

Not even close. Amistad 69' low. Falcon 45' low. Canyon 24' low. Travis 46' low. etc. All the lakes in North and East Texas are full, but West of 35 and South of 20 still needs rain.

Couldn’t be further from the truth.

I would not wish a CAT4 or CAT5 eye shot on my worst enemy. Any land fall in at Texas would be devastating. Let’s hold out for a tropical depression.

Not looking like it'll be a 4 or 5. The current forcasts are trending toward Beryl getting torn up on the Yucatan and downgrading to a tropical storm in the gulf.

We could do for a good tropical storm to park itself over central Texas for a few days.

Amistad, Travis, Choke, Medina, Canyon, Mathis, Falcon….all at record lows.

Yes. Our South Texas and Central Texas lakes need water badly! Falcon lake and Amistad lake as well as Medina lake, Canyon lake and Choke are low,low,low.

Wow! I had no idea.

I think Medina was a bad idea from the get-go. It's rarely been full in my 63 years.

It was built for flood control and for irrigating. It was never meant to be a recreational lake. Read the history on its building. Very interesting.

It (along with most other reservoirs) were built for the purpose of having water when we need it.

When Medina was built in 1913, its draw was the BMA irrigation canal that farmers used to irrigate out of. Now we have San Antonio and a portion of its 2.6mm people using water out of it as well. Its also built on a very narrow watershed and needs rain to fall in an isolated spot to actually make it into Medina, which we rarely get

Its a shame because when its full its one of the prettiest lakes in Texas and was beginning to be a pretty decent bass lake before the drought

South Texas is dryer than a popcorn fart. Our stock tanks are really low and dropping daily. Hopefully this storm will bring us some rain. We have several hundred round bales on hand but the way we are feeding our cattle, God only knows how long they will last. Friday I am having another concrete water storage tank installed. That will make number 5 and roughly 23,000 gallons of potable water on hand for the cattle and if the SHTF, for the house as well. Won't last long but its a step forward.

Pray for rain!!

Yep and until pretty recently Canyon wasn't getting drained that bad. Now there is a water supply line going into Boerne from Canyon lake as well as one going down 281 into San Antonio.


Granted, that's what those lakes were built for, but it still kinda sucks for people who like to recreate on the water

That is what happens when south of the border moves north of the border .

Checked last night and Canyon Lake is 56% full and 24 feet below normal pool level.

Its past time to ban yard watering etc, especially out west. Big waste of water. you want to live in a semi arid country, plant vegetation that lives there.

Outdoor watering puts the water back in the ground.
