Serious feeder bands offshore and wherever one sets up (and stalls) could receive upwards of 10" of rain over several hours.
Hopefully the tail end falls apart, but these systems are known to drop a surprise or two on their way out.


I've been watching the storms east of Corpus.. 3 inches per hour.

You would think it could make for some devastating rain, but I've seriously watched the radar all day and those strong storms just don't have the oomph to hold together. They seem to fizzle when starting their venture northward.
A lot earlier in the day a band setup along the I-45 corridor and I thought that was the beginning of the worst Bill had to offer. Nope.

Well, that's 'cause they're still over the Gulf waters. When they move inland in another few hours (of darkness, that is), it's another story.

I think it's more related to the dynamics of the storm, I expect some of this heavier activity to lift northward and work inland but we'll see. not sure how widespread it'll become but I'm having fun watching for it

Doppler radar estimates up to 10 inches has fallen in those storms.

I heard they expect it to actually get stronger over land. What does this mean for Houston if true?

I think Houston has not much to worry about. just watching for centrl Texas at this point. this storm was a real dud in my opinion. so far

Would like a graphic, please.


Still putting on a show.

I agree with you for the following reasons:

1.Tropical Storm Bill made landfall just before noon over Matagorda Island, a bit later than initially anticipated.

2. This late landfall was the better scenario for this storm as far as Houston is concerned. We didn't see a repeat of the Memorial Day flooding that devastated parts of town last month.

3.As the storm heads north, its core is will track just west of Harris County, meaning some of the heaviest rainfall will be inland.

Caution:

The way things look now, conditions will probably get way worse for our neighbors immediately to the west. AccuWeather says that Bill will take a slow, curved path northwest from landfall before shooting straight north through the state. Worse than your everyday tropical disturbance, I'd say. That's because much of Texas is already waterlogged due to recent flooding, meaning this system could linger even longer as it travels north.

Just remember, Bill is nothing compared to what other storms nature is capable of.

P.S. Kill Bill! (LOL)
