Rain amount forecast for Mt Pleasant this weekend is 1.85 inches. Will this amount have any major affect on Welsh's lake level?

Highly Doubt it, Ground will soak it all up. We are in drought around North Texas

Have to at least help a little, what they need is for the pump to be fixed


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

Swanano Creek is the main feeder for Welsh and it is a dry creek except during rain. Like so many power plant lakes Welsh does not have an adequate watershed and because of high evaporation from the Lakes hot water they require pumping in water from other sources. That’s the issue right now. Pumps are shut down for repairs in pipeline that comes from Lake Of The Pines. Really need several inches of rain minimum to get water flowing in the feeder creeks. Good news is if they get 1.85 inches directly over the lake I predict the Lake will rise 1.85 inches! laugh

There will still be some runoff and right now anything will help. On the other side of the coin when were the weather for-casters correct last? HA
