Lake Leon/Lake Cisco Water Levels

Lake Leon Morning Glory

Picture 1 of 4

At present, 1:20 pm on Sunday, the sun is out and all you hear are birds tweeting.  Once the sun stays out long enough to somewhat dry the yard, we will hear the din of mowers being pushed through tall grass and weeds.

Lake levels this afternoon at Lake Leon at 12:45 p.m. were 1376.61.  The lake is full at 1,375.0 meaning there is 1.6 into flood pool.   The level at 5:45 a.m. was  1.3 into flood pool,  1.5 into the flood pool at 9:45 am and 10:45 am and 1.6 at 11:45 a.m.

Lake Cisco was sitting at 1,520.68 at 12:30 p.m., the lake is 100% full at 1,520, making it 0.7 into the flood pool.  At 6:30 a.m. it had 0.5 into the flood pool and at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. 0.6 into the flood pool.

So far, only the low-lying areas that are prone to flooding have had problems with the rain.  The forecast shows thunderstorms possible today and tomorrow.   The reprieve between the rains has been enough so far to allow the runoff to move as it’s intended.

Reports from around the Microplex indicate as much as 5.7″ at Lake Leon and 4.82″ near Strawn have fallen over the weekend.  Feel free to list your rain reports in the comments below.  Or join in on the conversation on Facebook.com/MicroplexNews

    I’m taking that information from the Water Data for Texas website, as per the link in the article. I also find the same information at the Texas Water Development Board site. https://www.twdb.texas.gov/surfacewater/rivers/reservoirs/cisco/index.asp and Texas Parks and Wildlife states the same. https://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/recreational/lakes/cisco/index.phtml

    When the water at Lake Cisco went over the dam it was 1522.50 so the 1520 is incorrect.
