... Public information statement...

... Rains bring improvement to drought conditions to the South Plains
and rolling plains...

Impressive Reservoir rises have been observed at Lake Alan Henry
over the past few days with an 8.9 ft rise over the past week as
of 5am. This brings it to its highest level since November 2012 at
76 pct of conservation capacity. White River lake has also risen
to its highest levels since early 2013 at 6.3 pct full. This is an
increase of over 700 acre feet in the past week. Lake MacKenzie
saw little benefit with this event though it is running about 860
acre feet of water more than a year ago.

The double mtn Fork of the Brazos had a second brief excursion
above action stage on Saturday and has fallen below since 7pm

The highest 5 day totals in our area from the West Texas mesonet as
of 6 am are noted...
Slaton 5.56"
Sundown 4.70"
O'Donnell 4.62"
Wolfforth 4.42"
Brownfield 4.11"
Post 3.90"

Of note... Fluvanna and Gail just to our south received 9.62" and
15.26" respectively.

While these mesonet totals are impressive for this part of the
country they do not reflect the area of highest precipitation in our
County Warning Area which appear to have fallen between Brownfield
and Lamesa. Dual-pol radar estimates that 10.5 to 11 inches has fallen
since mid day on the 19th of September just east of the community of
Union in Terry County. Another broad area of 4 to 6 inches fell
between New Home and Brownfield during this same timeframe.

It is important that while some parts of the area saw a lot of
rain... the hydrologic effects of the drought since 2010 continue to
be with US though there is little doubt that these rains have helped
the short to medium term situation across the southern part of our

Graphs of river and Reservoir data are available are

Additional rainfall is expected through much of the work week in
the form of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms... but the
threat for widespread heavy rainfall appears very low at this time.
