Re: a shout-out to Brooks Garner from chaser, Jim Edds

Oh yeah, Jim's a great guy. Met him at a conference years ago. He's an amazing dude, traveling the world to chase typhoons, cyclones and hurricanes. Thanks for thinking of me!

HRRR
Seeing the short range model trends and observing the rain dissipating in Matagorda County, I'm growingly confident that we'll see an end to this rain faster than earlier anticipated. HRRR forecasts a quiet evening commute with generally dissipating rain.

Re: JUNE 2018: Heavy Rainfall Possible Through Wednesday

Checking the gauges on harris county flood control, the highest rainfall we've spotted in this band is about 2" per hour.... cold pooling behind this line MAY push it through, sparing us... Hoping the westward progression of that low doesn't effectively stop forward motion of this line.

Re: JUNE 2018: Heavy Rainfall Possible Through Wednesday

Any chance this band coming in from the west slows down and trains like it did in Beaumont or Corpus area? Or will this move through by this evening? I guess that is a tough question lol.. This has been pretty difficult to forecast by the NWS I imagine. Yes. That's what we're worried about... that ...

Re: JUNE 2018: Heavy Rainfall Possible Through Wednesday

The HRRR shows a possible focus of rain coming closer to our region over next 18hrs.... Not to say that this would cause flooding, but it would cause rain.

The threat for Houston metro will be enhanced by any outflow boundaries which result from this energy cruising up through Wharton and Colorado Counties after Matagorda... Thanks for posting!
