Re: June - Rain This Week??

21z sounding from College Station this afternoon confirms previous thinking and confirms the ACARS soundings with a distinct warm layer just above 700mb remaining over the region, especially west of I-45. Even though moisture levels across the southern sections are higher then what is seen up at CLL...

Re: June - Rain This Week??

Quite a bit of rain east of here where PW's AOA 2'' currently reside. PW's across our part of the state look to be running in the 1.6-1.8'' range with things continuing to moisten up. The latest CIMSS PW product indicates a large slug of tropical moisture headed this way from the western gulf and wo...

Re: June - Back to Hot and Dry...

12z extended range models still show a glimmer of hope in about 7-8 days or around the middle of next week into next weekend as they continue to show a weakness developing across east Texas with much deeper tropical moisture (pws in the 1.75-2.00'' range) surging into the region from the Gulf. There...

Re: June- A New Hope? (probably not)

Scattered showers and thunderstorms now starting to break out across areas north of I-10 as temps have warmed into the upper 90's and low 100's. Will have to watch out for strong winds in the stronger storms this afternoon and evening. The latest mesoanalysis shows a nice tongue of deeper moisture a...

No problem! So far though have only received a report of 1'' hail 2 miles south of Huntsville. It looks like most of the larger hail likely fell in a sparsely populated section of Walker county.

Re: May Weather Discussions. Drougnt Continues For Houston

^svrwx, Storms to the west appear to be re-intensifying as well. Do you think some of these storms could at least make it into Northern Harris county before the night is over? The storms out west look to be falling apart as they move away from the frontal boundary where the best low level convergen...

Re: May Weather Discussions. Drougnt Continues For Houston

The first hail core has dropped with a second one developing aloft around 25,000 ft. 4.37'' hail possible! That is an impressive chunck of ice falling to and striking the ground, svrwx0503. Rectify me if I am wrong, but would that size be grapefruit or very close to it? Come on thunderstorms, coerc...

Re: May Weather Discussions. Drougnt Continues For Houston

Large hail core dropping once again just south of Huntsville with a 78.5db return on the lowest tilt of the radar which up there is at about 7,000ft. Good bet that golf ball sized hail or larger might be falling about 4.5 miles south of Huntsville and 2 miles west of I-45. It looks like that storm i...

Re: May Weather Discussions. Drougnt Continues For Houston

While the line as a while is breaking up, some cells are re-strengthening and becoming more discrete. Big hailer in southern Walker county! Yes indeed! Radar indicating 3'' hail just southwest of Huntsville. Nice 71.5db core up around 23,000 ft with a storm top over 50,000ft. Watch out around New W...
