Texoma Rainfall, June 6 to 9

Lakes are rising and soil moisture has improved after heavy weekend rainfall.

Heavy rainfall has eased Texoma drought conditions during the past few days, especially over southern Oklahoma. 

Several rounds of rain and thunderstorms from June 6 through 9 racked up some healthy precipitation totals, with a wide swath of three to five-inch rains. There was even some localized flooding from the heavy rain (discussion continues below map).

I will post an updated drought report on Thursday (June 12); there will likely be considerable improvement in the drought status with some areas probably classified in “no drought” conditions.

As for area lakes, there was some significant runoff this time. Here are some lake level changes from Friday to Monday:

Lake Texoma: up about a half foot

Lake of the Arbuckles: up about a foot

Hugo Lake: up about a foot

McGee Creek Lake: up 2 feet

Atoka Reservoir: up 2 feet
