Getting wind gust over 50mph now... Hobby NW 24 G 51 mph Now over 86,000 without power in the centerpoint area now. Preliminary wind gust from the NWS, showing the university of Houston measured a gust of 63mph! Impressive for non storm winds around here.

We have power up here in The Woodlands but it has been flickering all afternoon long. [I feel very fortunate!]
We lost power for 5 min in CLL. I was freaking out, because I just picked up my main home office computer yesterday, after it was sidelined for a month because of damage due to power surges.

Everything is cool...for the moment.

Something to watch is the disturbance coming in with the cold front next week.Global models have gotten a little more aggressive with it and are showing cyclogenisis taking place.Forming potentially our first Gulf Low of the season.And could be a heavy rain threat depending on parameters.
