NWS for Tuesday night and Wednesday:

Generally speaking, we are looking at 1.50" to 2.50" amounts. With soils saturated and rivers/streams very high, this rainfall will only add to the
flooding concerns.

I can tell we have dock damage, likely a broken cable at least. It was OK until it got windy. It will be awhile before I can access/assess it, and see what else there is.

Ours won't be the only one.

Saw some videos of nice brick houses and one that was built up high like those on the coast with water in them. Is that the low road across Taney como over by the College? I almost bought a remodel down there after the first flood. It was torn down after the second time.

I am seeing 933.82 for TR. Is that correct. If so they have it going down. Unbelievable how much water they can get rid of from that lake thru the gates alone. Good grief.

Looks like they dodged the bullet again or ...its a calculated and carefully executed plan that seems to work every time? Hmmm...

Yes, It's back down to way-too-high, and the Corps is receiving kudos for a nice and orderly flood.

Maybe it's the frequency, and getting good at it, that makes it seem less of an issue than it used to be.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.

Pretty day today.

NWS:

A storm system moving out of the southern plains will bring another round of rainfall to the region from tonight through Thursday morning. Storm total rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are expected with the heaviest amounts occurring north of the Highway 60 corridor. Amounts approaching 4 inches are possible across the Lake of the Ozarks region of central Missouri.

Did they close it in 2011? If they did, I don't remember it.

Cold and nasty and windy (30 mph).

Cold and nasty we can deal with, but . . .

Wow! Here's a bullet we dodged . . .

3" - 5" all the way from Chanute, KS to Osage Beach.

Beaver is still 1/2 foot from flood stage, TRL is 2 feet over, and only Bull Shoals has a cushion.

I was wondering where the widespread 5" rainfall up north would be going, and I'm guessing Lake of the Ozarks.

They are facing the same thing we are, and Bagnell Dam is releasing 50,000 cfs.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)

A much needed extended period of dry weather is expected beyond
early Thursday morning. The upper flow regime becomes blocked as
ridging slowly builds into the nations mid section from the west.

Look for above average temperatures and plenty of sunshine Friday
through early next week.

I do not intend to mislead, but because it just popped up in the Branson area I could not see it coming . . . it is raining again.

100% runoff, of course.
