    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    May brought the rain back to central Texas and not a minute too soon, says Bob Rose, chief meteorologist for the Lower Colorado River Authority, which manages reservoirs and supplies water to cities and irrigation districts.

    Lake Travis is expected to rise a couple feet, and more rain is in the forecast.

    “But don’t think that we’re out of the drought just yet,” Rose notes. “There’s still a lot of catching up to do.”
