Rainfall received Tuesday and over the past few days certainly will help improve the drought situation at least some across the lake area.
Weatherology’s Ray Miller says it’s been a case of hit-and-miss with rainfall totals with some parts of Miller County, Tuesday, received 4-plus inches while parts of Camden County received, perhaps, a quarter-of-an-inch.
Here at KRMS Radio-TV, our rain gauge showed 1.53 inches for Tuesday bringing the monthly total up to 5.83 inches and year-to-date up to 20.69 inches.
The rainfall, according to Miller, should bump the lake area up a category, maybe two, on the U.S. Drought Monitor which puts the entire lake area in the extreme-to-exceptional categories.
