All the rain is a welcome sight here, because much of the state is in a severe record breaking drought, while un-seasonable storms keep the South Plains off that drought list.
The National Weather Service says Lubbock came off that list about two weeks ago, and while the rest of the state can't seem to get any rain, we're actually seeing more than usual for this time of year.
We've been lucky the past couple of days with rain dropping anywhere between one and two inches across the region, that's helping not only farmers and their crops but helping land everywhere keep the moisture it needs.
The National Weather Service says usually we see the most rainfall in June, and it's now -- the later summer months -- when we struggle. Fortunately, we're avoiding that struggle this year. That means your lawns get help, and our region's water supply has a better chance of replenishing before levels get too low.
Jason Jordan, NWS: "We might see at least a brief halt in the fall of lake levels at Lake Meredith and that's a good part. Also, we have a lot of rain going into Lake Allen Henry, some of the other lakes off to the south and east of Lubbock, so we should see some of the water supplies at least increase a little bit here in the next couple of days."
Jordan says it's likely Central and South parts of Texas will see some rain soon, but it's going to take between 5 and 10 inches to get them out of their drought.
