God, I hope not. I thrive in the warmth. Love summer. If I wanted mild or cold temps I would live up north as a Yankee.

The afternoon Updated Climate Prediction Center Experimental Week 3 to 4 Outlook that takes is into early/mid May suggests a deep Central/East Coast trough with equal chances of normal precipitation.

Ideal for my sprinkler and A/C unit. It's 67°F and we had 0.8 in of rain tonight. I'd take this all year round.

Our utility bills for July and August are ridiculous. 100°F, high humidity, but not much rain. We have no choice but to water during summers. The deep well aquifer water is high in sodium, so the water is alkaline...and that means extra iron for plants and grass. Gardenias and azaleas? Fuhgettaboutit. Landscaping in Texas is not for the weak of heart.

I wanted to briefly point out some signal developing in the medium/long range ensemble guidance suggesting a prolonged SE fetch off the Gulf begin this coming Sunday and extends throughout next work week. A vigorous deep trough appears to dig into the 4 Corners Region with the potential for a very robust cyclogensis (strong surface storm system) across the Panhandle/Southern Rockies late next work week. This typically spell severe weather threat in early May, so we will need to monitor trends into early next week.
