Lake Level Trend
In our last newsletter, we expressed some concern regarding the upward trend in lake levels that was occurring through the month of September. In fact, the heavy rain events in the latter half of September resulted in the lake level increasing to the maximum levels observed in the past and exceed those levels for a short time in early October. Since that time, with the onset of generally drier and cooler weather through October, the lake level has continued to decrease and now is on a trend towards average levels for this time of year. Unless there is a major change in the longer-term weather forecasts, the lake level should continue to slowly drop throughout the rest of the fall and winter.
SWOA will continue to monitor lake levels throughout the winter and, once snow pack data is available in late March and April, get back to our members with forecasts for the spring of 2020.
Have a safe fall and winter.
