Re: July 2020

It would require, what, about 15 sec of Googling to begin to find the answer re: our sub-tropical ridge, troll? https://wxshift.com/news/blog/understanding-one-of-summers-important-weather-drivers During the summer months, a ridge promoted by the continental warm and dry air over Mexico will shift a...

Galveston tied the long standing record high maximum temperature
of 95 set all the way back in 1875.

Re: July 2020

Thanks to the high pressure ridge at the mid to upper levels. The dreaded Death Ridge. After today, we'll see a respite for a few days...but it won't last. I don't know, it still doesn't quite make sense. Whenever I look at heights over Houston, they never really seem to get any stronger than 591dm...

Re: July 2020

I bet that area of weather coming from the east dies out before it gets to Houston. It defies logic how dry Texas is during summer relative to both the humidity seen across the state during summer, as well as how much rain places JUST to the east receive. Thanks to the high pressure ridge at the mi...

Re: July 2020

Re: July 2020

Euro and Ensemble have rain nearby Tuesday and Wednesday. Pretty iffy overall, though.

Re: July 2020

Anything? Anyone? Buehler? Most of the rain action re: GFS, Euro, Canadian, Ensembles appears to be in far east Texas over the next 10 days. NOAA has thrown in the towel on rain for the next week in the Brazos Valley, withdrawing that measly 20-30% for the July 4th weekend. Continued boring until fu...

The Euro has pretty much nothing over the next 10 days, except some showers between Houston and Lake Charles.

Re: July 2020

Almost time to keep an eye on the long range models. GFS has consistently been showing some energy coming from the Caribbean and into the Gulf sometime around July 4th. As usual it's all over the place this far out, anywhere from Tampico to the Florida panhandle. Beginning Monday, it will largely b...

Re: June 2020

Today looks like a bust. About 30% chance of showers tomorrow, and then Let the Dessication Begin! So enjoy the Saharan Dust today, and then I begin pulling for the occasional open circulation tropical wave over the next 2 months until SEC Football season - the COVID edition! ...as the dog days desc...
