Of course, that hole in the line west of Huntsville - I bet that goes right over my house.

Mighty dark skies for 6:58 pm DST. Winds have begun to gust a bit, too. I think we are fixing to get drenched for a few minutes!

It just can't really pop along and just west of 45. I looked at the cloud tops a few minutes ago and they were fuzzy - not impressive. The towers to the west - and off to the SE even - looked more impressive than the storms to my NW. Not the widespread 1-2" I was hoping for. I'm hoping to see a tenth at this rate. I had this gut feeling, reading last night's NWS discussion about the warm nose this was gonna bust.

The line thunderstorms can be seen nicely on the GOES-16 visible image this evening as the sun was going down. Currently the line of storms are below severe limits. Already beginning to see darkening skies on the horizon looking in League City. Radar shows the outflow boundary and line of storms moving into N Harris County toward Houston metro. Expecting the storms to move across Houston during the next hour and a half and then toward the coast around 9PM.

Pretty much done here. I got more leaves in the yard than raindrops. Lots of wind but nothing to show for it but a mess to clean up. Sprinklers will run as usual tomorrow.

Days like this make me want to find another hobby, like yoga.

There, there, Jasons. You'll get rain...some year. Maybe take up knitting. ;)

Done listening to forecasts and predictions. I'll just stick with what works.
