For my sake, I hope it fills in between Victoria and Hallettsville.

Guess I better be glad I got something yesterday. This one is splitting into two already. Unless it fills in, I'm getting dry slotted in the middle.

It will fill in more. You’re in a warm unstable sector.

This sucks! The heaviest rains missed me again. Just getting some moderate action, that’s it. The oranges and reds split up, with one area going north and east of me and the other to my southwest, leaving me with just some dark greens and a little yellow. Go freaking figure. Hopefully I can get at least another half inch cuz after this it looks to dry back out for the next week or two.

It really depends where you live. There’s a pretty steep temp gradient across your area. Rosharon and points south are still in the warm sector but areas just north of there not so much.
