Here in Sugar Land.. Lots and lots of lightning. Thunder in the distance as well. Very windy with on and off rain.. Love laying in bed with the flashes of light every 5-10 seconds.. Things appear to be starting, albeit slowly.

Hmm.. somehow I don't think the bricks holding down the "we-are-getting-our-previous-storm-damaged-roof-repaired-next-Thursday" protection tarp are going to survive the night. :-(

Line of T-storms coming through Sugar land now, seeing development near Bryan/College Station and it would seem that it will fill in as we move through the overnight in SE Texas. There is also a lot of wind energy with this as well. The house creaks with the wind gusts.



Exactly right. Entraining setting up near Caldwell. I won't hazard to estimates amounts and who "wins" the lottery, but there will be significant rain in SE Texas tonight.

Betting the forecasts overshot by about a foot of rain. We might get an inch or two outta this.

Surface winds backing to the NE helping to fire off a line of storms to our north... shows how very unstable the atmosphere is becoming in central and east Texas tonight. Looks like some weak convection trying to get going in Waller and Washington counties now. Watching it, and growing concerned that some parts of our area may get a bunch of rain tonight through the morning. Cheers all!

Thanks David Paul for the post. We all know weather is not an exact science and that is what makes it challenging. You have been a wealth of information today and tonight and on social media. Thanks again.
