Lake Murray water elevation, temperatures and more

We're half way through our coldest month (historically) at Lake Murray.  January has an average historical temperature of 44.05 degrees (average of daily high and low).  On the other hand, sometimes in the coldest months of January and February, we can have very pleasant weather.  For example, this coming Saturday, a high temperature of around 70 degrees is expected.

Also at this point, the lake level will begin to rise from a typical winter low of about 354-355 feet elevation to a spring/early summer high elevation of about 358-359 feet elevation (full pool is 360 feet elevation).  The Lake Murray water level today is at 355.56 - up .25 feet from January 1st.  Lake Murray's highest lake level runs from about early March to mid July (at or above 357 feet elevation).

Here is a chart with Lake Murray lake level elevations from February 1 - August 31, 2011:
