Do you post a chart of lake water levels vs. time on your website? Something similar to the 30-day charts for temperature and rainfall. I find them very useful.

MIKE MOSS SAYS:   Windy,    (UPDATED 25 Oct 07 - About the time I was posting the answer below, our web staff was implementing a new graph for area lake levels that is exactly what you were looking for -  see  www.wral.com/weather/page/1956847/)

I'm afraid the only lake level info we post online for now is a daily update of the morning lake levels as reported by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and the National Weather Service. I can, however, point you to several addresses where hourly values of the lake levels are posted, at least for Kerr, Jordan and Falls lakes. See

For a longer time span (daily instead of hourly observations) see this address:

Finally, if you'd like to see the past 15 days or so in graph form, you can do so starting from this address:

Here, click on the basin of interest, and then select the link you're interested in under "Graph Format" at the left side of the screen.
