Recent Showers Have Eased Drought, But Cause Worrying Rising Lake Levels

The rain has been pouring down over the Dallas-Fort Worth area according to an NBC DFW 5 article from May 20th. In it they say:

“This week started wet. Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport received almost three inches of rain this week.

The total for the month is 4.52 inches, giving us a surplus of 1.56 inches. The normal rainfall month to date is 2.96 inches. The cities of Dallas and Plano picked up over five inches of rain this week.

Despite the flooding issues, recent rain put our soil and lakes in a good spot heading into the summer months. The drought has been erased in North Texas.”

In fact, Lewisville Lake Park had to close due to the sudden and alarming rise in water levels according to an NBC DFW 5 article from May 27th. In it they say:

“Lewisville Lake Park is temporarily closed to vehicle traffic, including the public boat ramps, due to rising water.

City officials said Thursday afternoon that with more rain in the forecast the water level at Lake Lewisville is expected to continue rising and that the closure might be necessary through Memorial Day.

Water is already covering some roads and trails making them impassable, officials said.”

The rains may have halted the drought, but they’ve brought some problems of their own.
