... Annual 2017 SE TX Regional Climate Summary ...

2017 will long be remembered for the variety of weather the year
contained and multitude of hazards residents of Southeast Texas faced.
The year had just about everything with many locations recording
their warmest year on record and also their wettest year on record.
The year contained snowfall and severe storms including the devastating
downburst near Sealy and of course, Hurricane Harvey.

The city of Houston recorded its warmest and wettest year on record.
The wettest was never in doubt due to the excessive rainfall from Harvey
but the recent cold spell at the end of December put the warmest year on
record in jeopardy. 2017 held on to be the warmest year, besting 2012 by a
tenth of a degree. The city of Galveston and Houston recorded their
warmest years on record and College Station recorded its third warmest
year on record. Baytown, Mary's Creek at Winding Rd, and Cedar Bayou at
Highway 146 all recorded over 100 inches of rain during the year. Baytown
recorded 52 inches of rainfall during the month of August.

                            January

The weather in January varied greatly with temperatures falling into
the upper teens to lower 20s during the first half of the month
and then warming into the 80s during the second half of the month.
The coldest morning of the year occurred on the morning of the 7th
with a low temperature of 15 degrees recorded at Madisonville. The
cold snap was short lived and temperatures rebounded quickly and
were well above seasonal normals for the last three weeks of the
month. Toward the end of the month, the average temperature was
six to seven degrees warmer than the 30 year normals. Severe
thunderstorms brought strong winds and some minor damage to parts
of Houston and Harris counties on the 2nd. Strong storms on the
16th brought a weak and short lived tornado across western Harris
County. Additional storms on the 18th brought some minor flooding
to Fort Bend and Harris counties.

The month was warm, with average temperatures nine to ten degrees
warmer than the 30 year normals. High temperatures reached the
middle and upper 80s between the 8th and the 11th. Strong storms
brought wind damage to parts of Galveston and Harris counties on
Valentine's Day. Isolated tornadoes were also reported with this
severe weather outbreak over parts of Matagorda, Fort Bend and
Brazoria counties. Additionally, the month ended with below normal
rainfall totals. The lack of precipitation and above normal
temperatures resulted in abnormally dry drought conditions, which
persisted throughout much of the month across portions of the
coastal and eastern counties of the forecast area.

                            March

March was warmer than normal and rainfall varied greatly across the
region. The average monthly temperature was between six and seven
degrees warmer than the 30 year normals. One moderately strong cold
front allowed temperatures the second week of the month to fall
below seasonal temperatures by about five degrees. Rainfall was
below normal over the northwest half of the region and along the
coast, but above normal along the I-69 corridor. Houston Hobby
recorded 4.79 inches of rain on the 5th and some minor flooding was
reported in southeast Houston. Other hazardous weather developed on
the 24th and lingered into the 25th with some minor wind damage in
Harris, Montgomery and Polk counties. Overall, abnormally dry
drought conditions expanded across the eastern counties such as
Liberty, San Jacinto, Polk, Trinity and Houston counties, as well
as developed in Madison and Brazos counties.

                            April

The warmth continued through the month of April, as average
temperatures ranged two to five degrees above normal seasonal
temperatures. April 2nd brought a moderate risk of severe weather
conditions across the northwestern reaches of the forecast area,
with enhanced and slight risk conditions across the rest of the
region. A marginal risk for severe weather was also forecast to
occur on April 18th, bringing showers and thunderstorms across
much of SE TX. Drought conditions also improved considerably, with
the help of some above normal rainfall which occurred at about half
of the climate sites across the region, ending the month with only
a small patch of abnormal dryness located over San Jacinto and Polk
counties.

                            May

May was the first month of the year to see below normal seasonal
average temperatures.  A few rainy periods and weak cold fronts
helped to keep the monthly average temperatures down across most
climate sites. The month started off chilly, as a cooler and drier
airmass filtered into the region behind a cold front. Multiple
rounds of strong to severe weather also occurred in the beginning
of May, placing SE TX under slight to enhanced risk of severe
weather on May 4th. A slight risk was also issued for our
northwestern counties for May 12th. Additionally, showers,
thunderstorms, hail and gusty winds once again occurred May 28th
and into on Memorial Day, May 29th. Beneficial rainfall helped
ease the drying trend during the mid month period; however, warmer
conditions along with lessor amounts of rainfall led to a return
of abnormally dry conditions by May 30th. By the end of the month,
record breaking warm temperatures returned which aided in the
expansion of abnormally dry drought conditions across Houston metro
and northwestern counties.

                            June

The start of hurricane season quickly ramped up by middle June.
Tropical Storm Cindy developed in the central Gulf of Mexico on
Tuesday, June 20th. Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall just east of
SE TX on June 22nd, near Sabine Pass on the Texas/Louisiana border.
Rainfall across Southeast Texas from Cindy was minimal; although,
in the days following, two to four inches of rainfall accumulated
across the region associated with this system. The highest storm
total rainfall report was measured eighteen miles east of San Leon
in Galveston County with a value of 4.33 inches. The lowest
pressure recorded was 999 mb at Galveston Scholes Field. Winds
varied from 25 to 37 knots as the system made landfall. Overall,
minor coastal flooding was the main impact from Cindy, specifically
around Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula. Despite predominant
offshore winds, long period swell and associated wave run up lead
to a rise in water level along beaches that faced the Gulf of
Mexico. Tropical Storm Cindy helped the month end with near to
above normal rainfall over the central and coastal counties.

Otherwise, rainfall fell mostly during the first half and last week of
the month. A series of upper level systems helped bring generally
cooler and rainy periods during the first of the month. Average
temperatures ended within 1 degree of normal at most of the
reporting climate sites. Drought was not a problem; although,
some areas west of metropolitan Houston did see abnormally dry
conditions develop for most of the month.

                            July

Summer conditions were in full swing for the month of July. Above
normal temperatures and sporadic rainfall led to drying conditions
west of the Brazos River and north of the Interstate 10 corridor.
The average monthly temperature was generally 1 to 3 degrees warmer
than normal across Southeast Texas. The month started out unseasonably
warm but returned to near temperature values mid month only to return
to above normal values to end the month. The warmest day of the month
and for the year for many locations across Southeast Texas
was on the 29th. Rainfall was scant during July and monthly rainfall
totals were generally 1 to 3 inches below normal, especially over the
southern half of the area. The month ended with minimal drought
conditions parts of the Brazos Valley. The passage of a weak cold front
brought relief to the entire area the 31st. Drier dew points behind
the front left a fall-like feel in the air.

                            August

The month started with above normal temperatures, with
afternoon heat indices soaring to 108-112 degrees. Heat Advisories
were common during the first week of August. Heat wasn't the only
weather hazard Southeast Texas faced in August. The tropics
started heating up, too, and the genesis of Harvey began on the
14th with the Tropical Prediction Center issuing the first
advisory for the storm on August 17th. By the end of the third
week in August, conditions began to look favorable that
Harvey would impact a large portion of Southeast Texas.

Harvey was the longest lasting storm on record after making
landfall in Texas with a total lifespan of 117 hours, breaking
the previous record of 54 hours during Hurricane Fern in 1971.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) began issuing public advisories
for tropical cyclone Harvey on the morning of August 17th, and did
not issue the final advisory until the evening of August 30th.
Additionally, Hurricane Harvey was the first hurricane to hit the
Texas coast since Hurricane Ike made landfall near Galveston, Texas
in 2008. This was also the first major hurricane (category 3 or
stronger) to make landfall in Texas since Hurricane Bret in 1999.
Harvey is also the first named storm on record to make two Gulf
Coast landfalls greater than 60 hours apart.

Record rainfall and river flooding associated with Tropical Storm
Harvey began on August 25th.  Harvey stalled over Southeast Texas
for multiple days, producing catastrophic riverine and flash
flooding. On August 28th, Harvey shifted south and southeastward
back over the northern Gulf of Mexico and continued to slowly move
to the northeast, dumping additional rainfall on August 29th and
30th. Harvey maintained tropical storm intensity even after moving
offshore and meandering along the Texas coastal bend. Finally, on
the morning of August 30th, Harvey made its second landfall in the
U.S. (third landfall throughout lifecycle) just west of Cameron,
Louisiana. The largest amount of rainfall recorded at a single
station during Harvey was 60.58 inches in Nederland, Texas. For
the Houston National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Office
(WFO) area, the highest rainfall was 56.00 inches in Friendswood,
Texas. The widespread nature of record rainfall led to the
catastrophic impacts across Southeast Texas both from riverine and
flash flooding. Widespread river flooding occurred with 60 of the
67 official NWS river forecast locations reaching flood stage. Of
the 67 forecast points, 46 reached major flood status and 31 sites
reached record flood.

Harvey was the catalyst for the excessive rainfall that was observed
during August. The bulk of the rain from Harvey fell between August 26th
through the 30th with totals ranging between 20 and 50 inches which was
somewhere between 50-75% of the average annual rainfall.

                            September

Much below normal rainfall occurred across Southeast Texas during
the month of September 2017. However, little impacts were noted
since the month began with very wet soils and lingering flooding
from Tropical Storm Harvey's rainfall at the end of August.
Therefore, no drought conditions were present across SE Texas
throughout September. Other than a two-week period of cool
conditions following the season's first real cold front on the 5th
and 6th, September ended with temperatures at or slightly above
normal for the month.

                            October

Overall, the month of October brought record-breaking warmth across
much of Southeast Texas. High temperatures approached record levels,
breaking multiple high max record temperatures across Galveston,
Houston Hobby, and the City of Houston. A few cold fronts brought
relief from the heat, which moved through the region both in the
second and last weeks of the month. Below normal rainfall also
occurred across Southeast Texas throughout the month of October.
These dry conditions did not result in much drought across the
region, due to lingering soil moisture from Tropical Storm
Harvey in August. Even throughout the month, annual rainfall
amounts were still above the annual normal rainfall for many of
the major climate and the COOP sites.

                            November

Above normal temperatures along with below normal monthly rainfall
totals, allowed drought conditions to expand across SE TX in the
month of November. Every county within the CWA ended the month
under abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions. Average
temperatures remained approximately five degrees above normal
across the City of Houston, Galveston, College Station and Houston
Hobby. Additionally, this was the City of Galveston 6th warmest,
Houston Hobby's 4th, City of Houston's 7th, and City of College
Station's 3rd warmest November average temperature ever recorded.
Multiple weak cold fronts helped to provide the occasional break
from the heat. The strongest cold front of the month left below
normal temperatures for Thanksgiving day. Additionally, little
precipitation left a deficit of 2 to 5 inches for monthly rainfall
across the region. Houston Hobby received the most rainfall which
was just over an inch over for the entire month. Most of the
precipitation recorded for the month occurred on the first day
of November.

December

The first week of December brought well above normal temperatures,
with maximum daily temperatures reaching up into the upper 70s to
lower 80s, just before the first cold front of the month. Cold
crisp weather followed suit which allowed for a bit of wintry
precipitation. Snow fell across SE TX on December 7th and 8th where
a max of 5.0 inches accumulated in College Station, TX. The second
week of the month brought slightly below to near normal
temperatures, and little to no precipitation fell during this time.
As a result, and abnormally dry and severe drought conditions
expanded across the region. Decent rain fell with the passing of a
wet cold front, which brought one to three inches across SE TX, and
helped to improve drought conditions the third week of the month.
Finally, another moderately strong cold front ended the year,
lowering temperatures to near freezing and bringing periods of
very light rain and drizzle.

... Annual 2017 SE TX Regional Climate Summary ...

2017 will long be remembered for the variety of weather the year
contained and multitude of hazards residents of Southeast Texas faced.
The year had just about everything with many locations recording
their warmest year on record and also their wettest year on record.
The year contained snowfall and severe storms including the devastating
downburst near Sealy and of course, Hurricane Harvey.

The city of Houston recorded its warmest and wettest year on record.
The wettest was never in doubt due to the excessive rainfall from Harvey
but the recent cold spell at the end of December put the warmest year on
record in jeopardy. 2017 held on to be the warmest year, besting 2012 by a
tenth of a degree. The city of Galveston and Houston recorded their
warmest years on record and College Station recorded its third warmest
year on record. Baytown, Mary's Creek at Winding Rd, and Cedar Bayou at
Highway 146 all recorded over 100 inches of rain during the year. Baytown
recorded 52 inches of rainfall during the month of August.

                            January

The weather in January varied greatly with temperatures falling into
the upper teens to lower 20s during the first half of the month
and then warming into the 80s during the second half of the month.
The coldest morning of the year occurred on the morning of the 7th
with a low temperature of 15 degrees recorded at Madisonville. The
cold snap was short lived and temperatures rebounded quickly and
were well above seasonal normals for the last three weeks of the
month. Toward the end of the month, the average temperature was
six to seven degrees warmer than the 30 year normals. Severe
thunderstorms brought strong winds and some minor damage to parts
of Houston and Harris counties on the 2nd. Strong storms on the
16th brought a weak and short lived tornado across western Harris
County. Additional storms on the 18th brought some minor flooding
to Fort Bend and Harris counties.

                            February

The month was warm, with average temperatures nine to ten degrees
warmer than the 30 year normals. High temperatures reached the
middle and upper 80s between the 8th and the 11th. Strong storms
brought wind damage to parts of Galveston and Harris counties on
Valentine's Day. Isolated tornadoes were also reported with this
severe weather outbreak over parts of Matagorda, Fort Bend and
Brazoria counties. Additionally, the month ended with below normal
rainfall totals. The lack of precipitation and above normal
temperatures resulted in abnormally dry drought conditions, which
persisted throughout much of the month across portions of the
coastal and eastern counties of the forecast area.

                            March

March was warmer than normal and rainfall varied greatly across the
region. The average monthly temperature was between six and seven
degrees warmer than the 30 year normals. One moderately strong cold
front allowed temperatures the second week of the month to fall
below seasonal temperatures by about five degrees. Rainfall was
below normal over the northwest half of the region and along the
coast, but above normal along the I-69 corridor. Houston Hobby
recorded 4.79 inches of rain on the 5th and some minor flooding was
reported in southeast Houston. Other hazardous weather developed on
the 24th and lingered into the 25th with some minor wind damage in
Harris, Montgomery and Polk counties. Overall, abnormally dry
drought conditions expanded across the eastern counties such as
Liberty, San Jacinto, Polk, Trinity and Houston counties, as well
as developed in Madison and Brazos counties.

                            April

The warmth continued through the month of April, as average
temperatures ranged two to five degrees above normal seasonal
temperatures. April 2nd brought a moderate risk of severe weather
conditions across the northwestern reaches of the forecast area,
with enhanced and slight risk conditions across the rest of the
region. A marginal risk for severe weather was also forecast to
occur on April 18th, bringing showers and thunderstorms across
much of SE TX. Drought conditions also improved considerably, with
the help of some above normal rainfall which occurred at about half
of the climate sites across the region, ending the month with only
a small patch of abnormal dryness located over San Jacinto and Polk
counties.

                            May

May was the first month of the year to see below normal seasonal
average temperatures.  A few rainy periods and weak cold fronts
helped to keep the monthly average temperatures down across most
climate sites. The month started off chilly, as a cooler and drier
airmass filtered into the region behind a cold front. Multiple
rounds of strong to severe weather also occurred in the beginning
of May, placing SE TX under slight to enhanced risk of severe
weather on May 4th. A slight risk was also issued for our
northwestern counties for May 12th. Additionally, showers,
thunderstorms, hail and gusty winds once again occurred May 28th
and into on Memorial Day, May 29th. Beneficial rainfall helped
ease the drying trend during the mid month period; however, warmer
conditions along with lessor amounts of rainfall led to a return
of abnormally dry conditions by May 30th. By the end of the month,
record breaking warm temperatures returned which aided in the
expansion of abnormally dry drought conditions across Houston metro
and northwestern counties.

                            June

The start of hurricane season quickly ramped up by middle June.
Tropical Storm Cindy developed in the central Gulf of Mexico on
Tuesday, June 20th. Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall just east of
SE TX on June 22nd, near Sabine Pass on the Texas/Louisiana border.
Rainfall across Southeast Texas from Cindy was minimal; although,
in the days following, two to four inches of rainfall accumulated
across the region associated with this system. The highest storm
total rainfall report was measured eighteen miles east of San Leon
in Galveston County with a value of 4.33 inches. The lowest
pressure recorded was 999 mb at Galveston Scholes Field. Winds
varied from 25 to 37 knots as the system made landfall. Overall,
minor coastal flooding was the main impact from Cindy, specifically
around Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula. Despite predominant
offshore winds, long period swell and associated wave run up lead
to a rise in water level along beaches that faced the Gulf of
Mexico. Tropical Storm Cindy helped the month end with near to
above normal rainfall over the central and coastal counties.

Otherwise, rainfall fell mostly during the first half and last week of
the month. A series of upper level systems helped bring generally
cooler and rainy periods during the first of the month. Average
temperatures ended within 1 degree of normal at most of the
reporting climate sites. Drought was not a problem; although,
some areas west of metropolitan Houston did see abnormally dry
conditions develop for most of the month.

                            July

Summer conditions were in full swing for the month of July. Above
normal temperatures and sporadic rainfall led to drying conditions
west of the Brazos River and north of the Interstate 10 corridor.
The average monthly temperature was generally 1 to 3 degrees warmer
than normal across Southeast Texas. The month started out unseasonably
warm but returned to near temperature values mid month only to return
to above normal values to end the month. The warmest day of the month
and for the year for many locations across Southeast Texas
was on the 29th. Rainfall was scant during July and monthly rainfall
totals were generally 1 to 3 inches below normal, especially over the
southern half of the area. The month ended with minimal drought
conditions parts of the Brazos Valley. The passage of a weak cold front
brought relief to the entire area the 31st. Drier dew points behind
the front left a fall-like feel in the air.

                            August

The month started with above normal temperatures, with
afternoon heat indices soaring to 108-112 degrees. Heat Advisories
were common during the first week of August. Heat wasn't the only
weather hazard Southeast Texas faced in August. The tropics
started heating up, too, and the genesis of Harvey began on the
14th with the Tropical Prediction Center issuing the first
advisory for the storm on August 17th. By the end of the third
week in August, conditions began to look favorable that
Harvey would impact a large portion of Southeast Texas.

Harvey was the longest lasting storm on record after making
landfall in Texas with a total lifespan of 117 hours, breaking
the previous record of 54 hours during Hurricane Fern in 1971.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) began issuing public advisories
for tropical cyclone Harvey on the morning of August 17th, and did
not issue the final advisory until the evening of August 30th.
Additionally, Hurricane Harvey was the first hurricane to hit the
Texas coast since Hurricane Ike made landfall near Galveston, Texas
in 2008. This was also the first major hurricane (category 3 or
stronger) to make landfall in Texas since Hurricane Bret in 1999.
Harvey is also the first named storm on record to make two Gulf
Coast landfalls greater than 60 hours apart.

Record rainfall and river flooding associated with Tropical Storm
Harvey began on August 25th.  Harvey stalled over Southeast Texas
for multiple days, producing catastrophic riverine and flash
flooding. On August 28th, Harvey shifted south and southeastward
back over the northern Gulf of Mexico and continued to slowly move
to the northeast, dumping additional rainfall on August 29th and
30th. Harvey maintained tropical storm intensity even after moving
offshore and meandering along the Texas coastal bend. Finally, on
the morning of August 30th, Harvey made its second landfall in the
U.S. (third landfall throughout lifecycle) just west of Cameron,
Louisiana. The largest amount of rainfall recorded at a single
station during Harvey was 60.58 inches in Nederland, Texas. For
the Houston National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Office
(WFO) area, the highest rainfall was 56.00 inches in Friendswood,
Texas. The widespread nature of record rainfall led to the
catastrophic impacts across Southeast Texas both from riverine and
flash flooding. Widespread river flooding occurred with 60 of the
67 official NWS river forecast locations reaching flood stage. Of
the 67 forecast points, 46 reached major flood status and 31 sites
reached record flood.

Harvey was the catalyst for the excessive rainfall that was observed
during August. The bulk of the rain from Harvey fell between August 26th
through the 30th with totals ranging between 20 and 50 inches which was
somewhere between 50-75% of the average annual rainfall.

                            September

Much below normal rainfall occurred across Southeast Texas during
the month of September 2017. However, little impacts were noted
since the month began with very wet soils and lingering flooding
from Tropical Storm Harvey's rainfall at the end of August.
Therefore, no drought conditions were present across SE Texas
throughout September. Other than a two-week period of cool
conditions following the season's first real cold front on the 5th
and 6th, September ended with temperatures at or slightly above
normal for the month.

                            October

Overall, the month of October brought record-breaking warmth across
much of Southeast Texas. High temperatures approached record levels,
breaking multiple high max record temperatures across Galveston,
Houston Hobby, and the City of Houston. A few cold fronts brought
relief from the heat, which moved through the region both in the
second and last weeks of the month. Below normal rainfall also
occurred across Southeast Texas throughout the month of October.
These dry conditions did not result in much drought across the
region, due to lingering soil moisture from Tropical Storm
Harvey in August. Even throughout the month, annual rainfall
amounts were still above the annual normal rainfall for many of
the major climate and the COOP sites.

                            November

Above normal temperatures along with below normal monthly rainfall
totals, allowed drought conditions to expand across SE TX in the
month of November. Every county within the CWA ended the month
under abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions. Average
temperatures remained approximately five degrees above normal
across the City of Houston, Galveston, College Station and Houston
Hobby. Additionally, this was the City of Galveston 6th warmest,
Houston Hobby's 4th, City of Houston's 7th, and City of College
Station's 3rd warmest November average temperature ever recorded.
Multiple weak cold fronts helped to provide the occasional break
from the heat. The strongest cold front of the month left below
normal temperatures for Thanksgiving day. Additionally, little
precipitation left a deficit of 2 to 5 inches for monthly rainfall
across the region. Houston Hobby received the most rainfall which
was just over an inch over for the entire month. Most of the
precipitation recorded for the month occurred on the first day
of November.

December

The first week of December brought well above normal temperatures,
with maximum daily temperatures reaching up into the upper 70s to
lower 80s, just before the first cold front of the month. Cold
crisp weather followed suit which allowed for a bit of wintry
precipitation. Snow fell across SE TX on December 7th and 8th where
a max of 5.0 inches accumulated in College Station, TX. The second
week of the month brought slightly below to near normal
temperatures, and little to no precipitation fell during this time.
As a result, and abnormally dry and severe drought conditions
expanded across the region. Decent rain fell with the passing of a
wet cold front, which brought one to three inches across SE TX, and
helped to improve drought conditions the third week of the month.
Finally, another moderately strong cold front ended the year,
lowering temperatures to near freezing and bringing periods of
very light rain and drizzle.
