Small Weekend Rain, No Runoff

Barton Springs discharge: 48 cfs 10-day average
Lovelad Monitor well: 480.8 ft-msl

The rain gauge at the District office collected 0.21 inches from the rain that came through the area this weekend. Campy Mabry had a similar total rainfall of 0.20 inches. Before the rain this weekend, the District rain gauge had not received rain since mid-March. At the time of this post, the hydrographs for Lovelady monitor well and Barton Springs do not seem to have been significantly influenced by this weekend's rain. It appears that we are still on track to reach Lovelady well's Stage II Alarm Drought threshold by the end of April unless substantial precipitation occurs.
