It’s incredible how fast the atmosphere is recharging today. Just spent about 30 min outside and it already almost feels like it’s juiced back up out there and wants to start raining again. This is one prolific event down here in Wharton County. Dang near a foot of rain has already fallen here.
I've been busy today - meant to post earlier - but I experienced the same thing at about the same time earlier today. I went out into the garage, and it was cool. Stepped outside from the garage, and it was also cool. Then, about that time, we had some breaks in the clouds and the winds above the surface, from the SE started cranking. It felt like the temp. warmed ten degrees in a few minutes, going from cool to warm and muggy. I was thinking at the time 'this is just like a warm front went through'

I walked through the garage on the way back into the house, and the garage felt cool this time compared to the outside. It happened quick...

Back to now -- watching the radar for one last quick burst

Is that our 90% heavy possible severe “main event “ storms we are supposed to get tonight just entering west of houston? Looks kinda puny.
As the low moves east, it's going to pick up extra Gulf moisture and sling it Beaumont's way in the wee hours.

If you didn't get enough rain with this event you wont have to wait long for the next chance of heavy rain.As this Tuesday a front will come through producing either a mcs or squall line. And also producing a quick 1-2+inches of rain over the area. ;)

The storms near Lake Jackson are tracking NE and are getting feisty.

Pretty much spot-on with the NWS/HPC etc. Great job!

A grand total of 1.75" which the yard appreciates. Time to enjoy a nice warm mostly sunny Spring May day.
