How is the middle of that line weakening as it heads this way? How the heck and why? We are at peak heating. No pesky outflow outrunning the convection (yet). That line should be filling-in right now, not falling apart. 🤦‍♂️
I fully expected to check the radar and see a really solid line heading this way and instead i see its gonna be a big nothing here in Cypress unless it gets its act together real quick. I was hoping for a good evening storm

Guess I better try to mow the front yard while I can. Backyard is still a bog and smells like one too.

Yeah - my buddy over in Austin just got a real nice storm. It's a solid line to the west, a solid line the east, but the part headed to Houston just fell apart. I'd love to know the meteorological reason why it happened. A warm nose/cap? Maybe it's just a magic forcefield. :lol:

Dang. Looks like Beaumont isn’t going to get anything either. I was looking forward to a nice evening storm. Figures. Seems all storms nowadays always go poof by time it arrives in SETX. Use to be solid thick red squall lines. Oh well, time for the hot-ness.

You and me both. I’ve seen weird donut holes and the occasional split around a locale, but this is just boggling. Would wish one of our esteemed pro Mets could shed some light, if there is any at all.

Picture says 1,000 words. My house is the blue H. Watch it skip right past me.

I was out mowing and I think the line literally hit my backyard and underwent nuclear detonation as I was trying to beat the clock. From thick blue green clouds to bust in about 15 minutes. Maybe 0.1 in of rain.

I mean, the 200 cc Honda engine on the mower cuts through high St. Augustine grass like buttah...but never imagined it had the power to crush a late July line of t-storms. :lol:

And then right on cue, after the line passes it re-generates....

Latest HRRR is an eye opener for some of us.
