I’m surprised so far by the lack of activity on the radar. Its all in Louisiana at the moment. I bet by 3 or 4 it’ll start picking up though.

The NWS is directionally challenged today. The morning updated AFD was tough to wade through, but basically it’s wait-n-see if the storms to our east can build towards us...

I'm thinking we won't be lucky in the precip dept in my neck of the woods :(

There's some backbuilding. I don't think the showers will extend past Navasota, but NW Harris Co. should see some rain.

I’ve noticed the past couple days these storms are really taking off once they get north of 10. It’s mostly just been some light showers south of there.
I've been coming to the conclusion also that land-cover type can heavily affect the weather that is experienced. And it could be a huge factor in the summer rainfall frequency in the SE US vs Texas. The SE is pretty much uninterrupted forest, and even the open areas (i.e. marshland, beaches, etc) still have lots of water around. Contrast that with Texas, mostly open prairie land where the sun has uninterrupted access to the ground to dry things out.

Still not perfect, because historical data shows the more open land South of I-10 averages more rainfall than the more forested areas North (see: Bush IAH vs Hobby Airport).
