I had to, it was way colder than the NWS expected (And I kinda did not expect that either). Lol

Looks like an 80 degree Christmas is confirmed more and more every day. 😭

It’s been a little cool but I think it’s time for some grilling weather this week as it warms up. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

Looks like a solid week of 80s beginning Thursday or Friday. We have enough A/C humming and emptying my pocketbook days in Texas. :cry:

Having to put down another dose of pre-emergence. May be too late. Weeds are sprouting weeks early.

Cooked a BBQ chicken on the egg tonight. I think I will be cooking something outside for the foreseeable future. Might even have to heat the pool for a swim party on Christmas.

We really haven't had cold temps during daylight hours yet. No impediment for BBQ'ing.

Wind shift this morning. Already feels like 70°F in the sun.

Update from Jeff is below. Pretty much the same story from Space City Weather too.
If you like cold weather…hopefully you enjoyed the last few days…a great warm up is in store and will last likely through the end of 2021.

Air mass is starting to modify behind the cold front that moved across the area on Saturday. With high pressure now moving east of the area southerly winds are starting to return which will yield increasing warmth and humidity starting today and lasting well into next week. With an upper level ridge over Baja building out of MX and into TX and the southern US over the next several days any hopes of cold air intrusions from the north are zero. Instead southerly winds will bring back a warming Gulf air mass and by late week and into this weekend we face near record/record highs yet again…a theme so far this winter and especially this December.

With upper level ridging in full control expect little in the way of rainfall just the daily cycle of lows in the 60’s to near 70 by late week and highs in the low 80’s with gusty southerly winds. Pattern will carry over into all of next week with warm conditions remaining in place likely through the end of 2021.
