Lake Travis, Texas, weather forecast


Lake Travis is one of 6 Highland Lakes in the chain of lakes on the Colorado River in central Texas. Lake Travis is the fifth lake down with Lake Austin on the south and Lake Marble Falls on the northwest of Lake Travis.

The longest of the 6 Highland Lakes, Lake Travis winds its way northwest through the central Texas Hill Country for over 60 miles down into the outskirts of Austin. Lake Travis is 4.5 miles wide at the widest point and has 270 miles of shoreline. The reservoir was formed in 1942 by the construction of Mansfield Dam on the western edge of Austin, Texas by the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA).

There is a lot of open space around Lake Travis and a few ranches and four communities around the shores of Lake Travis. On the south side of Lake Travis, closer to Austin, on Highway 620 is the Golfing community of Lakeway. Volente Village is also on the south side of lake Travis.
