MARCH 2021

Post by BlueJay » Fri Feb 26, 2021 8:52 am

It's time to start talking about Spring 2021.

I'm looking forward to seeing some fabulous Texas wildflowers sprouting up very soon. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing how much of my landscaping needs to be replaced...my poor citrus trees and bottlebrush shrubs took a beating.

I think we've reached the time of year when "The Cap" becomes the entrenched buzz word. NWS yesterday evening had my area pegged with a 70% chance of heavy rain after 1am then 80% of heavy rain today; came up bone-dry. Now the forecast is just showers for the day (maybe?).

Not necessarily needing a deluge, but a free drink of water would've been nice with the freeze recovery. I'm guessing the cap is pretty stout across the area because the radar looks pretty quiet/tame compared to yesterday's forecast.

0.70” overnight. Wasn’t expecting that much. Just enough to keep the dead plants alive. Lol

So now NOAA is calling for May 15th to begin our cane season?

They're just issuing TWO's earlier. The official season still starts June 1st.

I read that 2021 is supposed to be more or less ENSO neutral. What does that bode for spring storm season and Hurricane season? I'm assuming more home grown thunderstorms and less gulf hurricane activity than a strong La Nina year.
