Lake level gets higher, more rain expected next weekend

LAKE COUNTY – A damp Easter Sunday pushed Clear Lake's level higher and led to forecasts of snow in higher elevations.


The National Weather Service issued an “urgent winter storm warning” for the county Sunday morning that predicted up to 10 inches of snow overnight in elevations about 2,000 feet.


That warning was pulled later in the day and replaced with a winter weather advisory predicting scattered rain and snow showers – with snow at 1,700 feet – throughout the night, with little or no snow accumulation expected.


On Monday, rain and snow showers are likely in the morning, with a 70 percent chance of rain throughout the day and wind gusts up to 21 miles per hour, the National Weather Service reported.


The forecast calls for the rain to return next weekend, after a week of days ranging from partly cloudy to mostly sunny.


Following a wet weekend, the news for the county's water supply is good.


Late Sunday, the US Geological Survey gauge for Clear Lake showed the lake's level at 7.20 feet Rumsey, the special measure used for Clear Lake.


A full lake is 7.56 feet Rumsey, according to Lake County's Water Resources Division.
