Lotsa water still coming from Beaver and James. Being passed on.

The total under flood stage in all three lakes is about 4 feet.

Still a very dangerous situation with rain in the forecast.

Still just 4 feet under floodstage total for all three lakes.

Just one good rain away from big problems.

Drove across Norfork Dam today -- not discharging at all other than the minimum flow discharge always going for trout fishing. Norfork Lake is very high, looked higher to me today than it did last Monday when I was in the area.

The total cushion under flood stage of all three lakes is now about 7 1/2 feet.

If KY3 is not overselling the storms we'll be getting tomorrow evening, it could be very nasty.

Busy, busy lake weekend, and not the best of lakes right now. One of our lakehouse neighbors just arrived with a boat, and you can't even get close to our ramp. They'll have to put in somewhere else. I've been riding a square of dock flotation out to our dock.

NWS

Increasing low level convergence and a weakening
cap will act to kick off thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and
continue into the evening. Indications and sounding analogs have
shown a consistent signal for large hail to the size of baseballs
and a damaging wind signal.

When in June? Probably high, and slightly colored, but not necessarily flooded and dirty.
Taneycomo is not the usual tap water clear that it can be this time of year. But even with all the water coming off the top of Table Rock it is still relatively clear, and clean. That would mean the water in Table Rock must be pretty clean as well.
Dirt doesn't filter out going through the flood gates. Neither do the walleye, white bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass crappie, catfish, and even paddlefish. All of which are being caught, or seen below Table Rock dam. Even a 40# paddlefishwith a broken bill that was snagged with a trout jig under the broaked bill.

Still up north . . .Springfield to Moberly . . . tornado boxes in Lebanon and Osage Beach. One hour rainfall in those areas: 2".

Highest risk for Branson . . . 6 - 9 PM. . . . . just changed . . . 4 - 11 PM

The amount of instability and expected updraft strengths are
conducive to very large to giant hail production. Current thoughts
are for baseball size or larger hail with the strongest storms.
Thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph and a few tornadoes
will also be possible.

High winds, hail, and possible tornados, but no mention of heavy rain.

Yup, but in the areas up north today that have had high winds, hail, heavy lightning and tornadoes, the rainfall has been 2" per hour.

Ah, here it comes, a large, red and orange squall line, with tornado warning box, stretching from NE OK to Springfield, moving SE toward Branson. 1.5" per hour.

KY3 says 70-80 mph winds.

More firing up around Tulsa.

2" hail this morning along the MO/AR line.

Heavy damage in Lebanon area. Lotsa power outages.

Looks like "Stormagedon" just gave the Rock a little bump. Up .06, and trending back down.

Yup, I'm shocked! I bet those that manage lake levels are, too!

We had 4" in the gauge this morning, so I'm wondering where it all went.



But, then, we're certainly not better off than we were when there was a 50-foot cushion, total, when now it's 6'.

Now that I think about it, the only places it rained hard was at the rain gauges.
Seems it was very isolated, and spotty heavy rains. 5" in Branson, but not in the areas that feed Table Rock. Fall Creek flash flooded putti g two feet of water in Danna's, and flooded Fall Creek Resort according to KY3. Taneycomo went up 4', and flooded the downtown camp grounds. Little road side drainage along Fall Creek Rd., Cooper Creek washed a car away with five people in it. Two escaped, two bodies found, and one missing as of around Noon.
But the Rock barely noticed the rain.

2.42" here as of yesterday morning. At least the predicted hail missed us.

Lake is definitely not as busy as usual over Memorial Day weekend.

Off and on rain chances beginning 5-31 all the way to Sunday 6-4.
