A lot more capping in the spring, too. It’s almost like our Climate is becoming like India’s.
That would be the effect, more or less - though there'd be a bit more cyclonic influence without a more consistent monsoon type pattern. It would be more like present day southern/southwest Mexico's.

Re: October 2020

Houston is at the same latitude as India. Delhi is at the same latitude as Houston. India have the Himalayas and Karakoram to the north, which Texas has no high mountain range. That's what allows India to be a climate wet dream - they have huge transverse mountain ranges, so they enjoy nice toasty ...

Hope that doesn’t happen, and I doubt it will anytime soon.
We'll see. They've seen 100F in February right on the Gulf at Tulum and Villahermosa. And it's already reached Texas, even Laredo and McAllen have seen 100F in February!

No different than any other winter here. I've been in Houston 40 years and see fall, winter, and summer every cold season.
The difference is that the cold would be getting weaker. Less "rollercoastering," more constant 70-90F days throughout winter.

Re: October 2020

Just watch, the tropical takeover is happening. Very soon, Houston will regularly see those hot 90F winter days just like the Rio Grande Valley & tropical Mexico.

I’m with you 100%...anything below that is pointless unless it’s snowing, and If I wanted that, I’d move to Denver. I say it every year, but there is nothing I can do to control the weather...except retire back in Florida some day.
...Or wait for climate change to really kick in.

Re: September 2020:

I really hope we don’t have a warm winter. You have that 8 months out of the year so I’m sure you can handle 3-4 months of “cold” weather. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy cooler winter temps myself - let's say, highs in the 70s, lows in the 50s/upper 40s. But anything below that doesn't seem to be of a...

Re: September 2020:

Some big cold blasts have occurred in La Nina winters like in 1895, 1899, 1911, 1918, 1924, 1951, 1962, 1985, 1989, 1996, 2011, and 2018. Again, the cold and precip only happen in the instances of La Ninas with El Nino permeations (i.e. SOI crashes). And even then, many of those years had great str...

Re: September 2020:

No thanks. I’ll take cold and some winter precip. By the way, La Niña doesn’t ensure warm and dry weather every time. The last time was 17-18 winter and it snowed at my house.. The 17-18 season definitely wasn't a proper one, it still had substantial El Nino influences (i.e. SOI crashes with active...
