The area from Hempstead to Eagle Lake right now is getting a flat out downpour. It’s raining pretty good here too but not nearly as heavy as it’s raining in that area. If it can hold together you guys in Harris County should be getting some good rains.

The winds and LLJ are really cranking here now. Would not surprised to see a tornado watch hoisted.

The line of storms are getting a little more potent and organized.

Why did the line get more organized after it passed my area?, not sure if thats a question that can really be answered but I have noticed that occasionally these squall lines will get more organized after they pass my area, maybe the environment was a little more stable in my area but a little more unstable to the east of me

There tends to be more moisture the more east and south you get in the state due to the closer proximity of the Gulf(and the curvature of the coast line).And less of an influence from the dry air that comes from the desert southwest(and the SW flow aloft). Happens even more often to those west of you along the I-35 corridor,where its pretty common for squall lines to not develop until they get east of them as the frontal boundary encounters more moisture and unstable air as it gets closer to the gulf.
