Recent rain helpful, but not enough to ease hydrologic drought

Current Conditions: Critical Stage
Barton Springs: 23 cfs (estimated 10-day average)
Lovelady Well: 194.7 ft

The thunderstorms that rolled through yesterday added about 1/2 inch to a March total of 2.6 inches--slightly above average for the month. However, it will take a lot more to take us out of drought conditions. Despite the above average rainfall for March, Barton Springs rose only temporarily and the Lovelady well only barely registered the influence of the rain.

It looks like more rain may be on the way today...let's hope so. Every drop helps.
