Re: APRIL 2019 -- Weekend Rain/Severe Weather Possible

Line went through SW Houston pretty quickly. A little over 1 inch of rain and gusty wind. Didn't see any hail in Westbury.

Re: APRIL 2019 -- Weekend Rain/Severe Weather Possible

As of now a bunch of us are stuck in S Padre Island due flight cancellations that began around 3:30 AM. Nasty squall line approaching Harlingen ... and they laughed at me for driving ... ;) There are far worse places to be stuck. (As long as you’re still on the island.) It’s dry so far up here 13mi...

Re: National Tropical Weather Conference 2019

Who's on the 10:45am Southwest flight to Harlingen with me next Wednesday?

Steve? David? Brian? Dr. Frank & his wife? Anyone else?

Re: March 2019: Chilly WX. Freeze Watch Hoisted

I'm not so sure that the clouds will clear out in time for us to freeze tonight. As for today's temperature, we may not top 40 degrees. So far, the coldest day this winter occurred in mid November when the high at Bush hit only 43. Today may turn out to be the coldest day of the winter, as far as th...

Re: National Tropical Weather Conference 2019

Since I won't be speaking (and they won't cover my expenses), I won't be going. I calculated $1000 for the hotel, $200 for registration, and $250 for the flight. Add in meals and it's over $1500. Driving down there wouldn't save much.

I doubt that if he took a close look at the situation then he'd be forecasting any significant snow in Texas. 12Z Euro indicates a trace of snow a...

Re: January 2019 - Active Progressive WX Pattern Ahead

I see Brooks Garner tweeting about an "Arctic Blast" arriving tomorrow. I don't know, but lows in the mid to upper 30s doesn't seem like Arctic air, to me. It's only about 8 deg below normal. The Midwest is seeing the Arctic blast, where temps may drop below -30F. Upper 30s to upper 40s is...

Re: January 2019 - Active Progressive WX Pattern Ahead

prob won't see any frozen stuff but wouldn't surprise me noth of I10 in se tx area could see something. Looks like the surface temperature well north of I-10 will be in the mid to upper 40s with the freezing level way up at 8000 ft as the precip ends tomorrow morning. Not a good recipe for anything...

Re: January 2019 - Active Progressive WX Pattern Ahead

Drove in to work around 6:30 this morning. Heading east on the south loop just past 288 I heard a couple of sleet pellets hit the windshield. Saw a few sleet pellets as I drove south on 45 past Hobby. HRRR has a thin sub-freezing layer overhead around 950mb (1500 ft). Thus, the sleet. Too much above...

Re: January 2019 - Active Progressive WX Pattern Ahead

Not too much of interest as far as our weather this week. cold front comes through tomorrow morning. Maybe another light freeze on Thursday morning, through the temperature may only drop to the mid 30s. Potential for a bit more of a freeze around next Wednesday (30th). Maybe upper 20s. Too cold for ...

Re: January 2019 - Rain/Storms & Strong Cold Front

The cold front is showing up now on surface obs. The source region is Kansas and Nebraska, just recycled old Canadian air for this weekend's front. No new Canadian air for Wednesday's front, either. No Arctic front unless you consider Nebraska the Arctic. You'll have to look farther out for any real...

Re: January 2019 - Rain/Storms & Strong Cold Front

Here's an example from the latest GFS. I selected an area in the middle of its snow prediction next Wednesday morning. Sounding below indicates precip forming in sub-freezing air between about 12,000 and 25,000 ft (mid-level clouds). Such precip would be light snow. However, it then falls through a ...

Re: January 2019 - Rain/Storms & Strong Cold Front

You have to be careful with those snow accumulation maps or the precip-type maps. I notice that the GFS is showing snow between College Station & Waco on Wednesday morning. However, if you look at the predicted sounding, it also has the freezing level way above 700mb (close to 12,000 ft up). All...

Re: January 2019 - Rain/Storms & Strong Cold Front

FV3-GFS also has some snow across SE Texas (late Wednesday) Could be snow.. going to be a small window if anything makes it to the surface. Red outline circle in the first image matches what the sounding shows for that same location/time. 12z GFSFV3 indicates that the snow may actually end up falli...

I have no idea what you're looking at. I see nothing in the latest Euro or GFS as far as any frozen precip anywhere near SE TX.

Re: January 2019 - Rain/Storms & Strong Cold Front

Models continue to trend less cold with Saturday's front. There really is no Arctic air at all in western Canada. In fact, the air up there is relatively mild for mid-January. Latest ECMWF doesn't even take north Houston (Bush) below freezing this Sunday/Monday. Can't rule out a light freeze, but th...
