KEKT/KXAS — With gorgeous weather in the forecast, many Texas lakes are still too low to accommodate boaters.
At Captain Cove's Marina on Lake Ray Hubbard in Dallas, boats are beached on exposed mud... which is about four feet deep.
The prolonged extreme drought in some areas of Texas has only worsened.
According to the National Drought Mitigation Center, most of North Texas is in severe to extreme drought, while just about the entire panhandle is in exceptional drought, the highest category.
As summer approaches and the sun angle continues to increase, lake levels will continue to drop at a more exponential rate without extended periods of rain.
According to KETK staff meteoroligist Marcus Bagwell, this is not a problem East Texans are facing . Our lake levels are in good standing at this time and should remain so for the immediate future.
