Red River Begins to Flow Again

The Red River is beginning to look more like a river again, as water from all the rain flows down from the panhandle and North Texas.

The line of thunderstorms moved southeast out of the panhandle, dumping large amounts of rain in some areas of the Red River watershed.

The Red River outside Burkburnett is on the rise, coming up from just over 3 feet Friday to 5 1/2 feet by 3 pm Monday.

How much more water does that mean in cubic feet per second? From about 50 fps Friday to around 1,800 fps Friday afternoon.

The Wichita River near Seymour went from 6 to 1,600 cubic feet per second, and in Wichita Falls, from 5 to 110.

The Pease River shot from 5 to 2,200 cubic feet and Groesbeck Creek near Quanah shot from 5 to more than 4,000.

Slower increases are showing up in the water flowing into the Wichita Falls lakes, but we'll keep you posted if they begin increasing more.
