Re: February 5-11-11 Winter Weather Advisories Issued

I slipped twice on my way to work this morning. Thankfully the icing on the road isn't solid, so able to gain t...

Re: February Weather. Snow/Sleet/Ice/Winter Storm Warning

I can confirm the sleet and random snow flakes are coming down right now. Plenty of sleet on the street, too.

Re: February Weather. Severe Threat/Arctic Blast/Then Snow?

I can tell you it's 27-28 in Round Rock according to my truck on my way to work -- We had some small amounts of freezing rain apparently and the icicles never melted on my mirrors.

Weather in Austin Sept. 24th and 25th.

If I was looking at the long range GFS forecast, looks like maybe a cool front moving thorough Austin sometime between September 23rd and the 26th with some light showers? I know that models usually have a pretty poor track record that far out, so I'm holding out for a little more than a week before...

Re: 90L Gulf of Mexico

As I recall about Humberto, it was supposed to go into Galveston as a small tropical storm, but instead, turned to the ENE and wrecked Sabine Pass, Port Arthur, Bridge City and Orange. Lots of people in Beaumont didn't even know a almost Category 2 hurricane had blown through moth of south Jefferson...

Re: TS Alex. 270 Miles ESE of La Pesca. 70 MPH/981 MB

1st feeder bands moving through Round Rock and the I-35 corridor. Rain from Kennedy up to Waco. A little thunder, no wind, but a nice heavy tropical downpour. My grass is loving it! Not really 100% associated w/ Alex. There is a washed out front/weak boundary around the Austin area, giving enough l...

Re: NWS MAY END TEXT PRODUCTS WITH ALL CAPS

To me, for whatever reason, reading the weather in all uppercased is easier on the eyes than mixed case. Not too sure why.

Re: Spring Foward=Move clocks ahead one hour

I would take Daylight Savings Time over Standard Time ANYDAY! I absolutely HATE how early it gets dark in the winter! 6:30PM would be better than getting dark at 5:30PM in December! Blahh on standard time!! :evil:
