The forecast for the weekend is more of what we’ve had for the past month. More rain passed through last night and Lake Travis reached 660 feet as of 7:00am — a few more feet and Sometimes Island will disappear.
With more than 30 feet of water in the past 30 days, Lake Travis is 21 feet away from reaching full pool at 681 feet. The water levels of Lake Travis are at their highest since 2011 … but still 12 feet below the average for this time of year.
We are excited to see the water level of Lake Travis on the rise after so many dry years. But unfortunately the cycle of the Highland Lakes is one of drought and deluge. Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the devastating floods in Central Texas.
We encourage you to take some time this weekend to donate or volunteer as flood relief efforts continue. Here is a list of organizations where you can volunteer and help Central Texas flood victims.
We also encourage you to get out this weekend and support our local businesses, events and live music scene. Here is your weekend roundup for Lake Travis:
