Despite the recent spatter of summer like rains ...
Overall water levels in The Big Cypress are still low.
The water table is a good half foot below normal for this time of year.
That puts water (or hydric conditions) prevailing in the center of the Preserve's domes and strands.
But don't expect it to last for long.
Water levels are poised to drop another foot before the rainy season starts.
That could have the preserve bone dry by later this spring.
