southeast New Mexico.

creeks and draws. Pockets of flash flooding will be possible
with the most intense rain in areas prone to rapid runoff such
as the edge of The Caprock Escarpment.

Public Information Statement

... 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 8.3 ft rise over the past week as of
3am. This brings it to its highest level since early 2013 at 74
pct of conservation capacity. White River lake has also risen to
its highest levels since early 2013 at 6 pct full. This is an
increase of about 600 acre feet in the past week. Lake MacKenzie
saw little benefit with this event though it is running about 850
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 rapidly since 7pm

The highest 5 day totals in our area from the West Texas mesonet as
of 3 am are noted...
Wolfforth 4.92"
Slaton 4.23"
Tahoka 4.11"
Post 3.97"
Brownfield 3.75"

Of note... Fluvanna and Gail just to our south received 9.77" and
14.74" 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 nearly 9.5" 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 Monday with the highest
concentrations across our southwestern counties although
thunderstorm activity is also expected along a cold front across the
northeast. Thereafter... scattered thunderstorms are expected through
much of the work week.
