I'm still seeing a lot of amplified NW flow through the 11th. Canadian teasing again re: mischief within the state. Depends how far east the block sets up and sustains.

Climo says don't get sucked in yet...and start planting like crazy.

Temps in the 50s with gusty N winds this morning thanks to last nights cold front which as moved offshore. Mostly cloudy and highs only in the upper 50s today. Saturday will be cloudy with showers likely followed by a partly cloudy Sunday and highs back into the 70s.

Beautiful evening sky photo Katdaddy :)

Happy Groundhog's Day! Will it be an early spring or 6 more weeks of winter?

harp, haven't you seen this before. My gut instinct is the models have backed way off on any arctic intrusions, thus you have this now. We've had our winter fun this year, now bring on the warmth.


I've certainly seen this before. However, Srain keeps indicating that more may be on the way. The heat and suffocating humidity will be here soon enough.


Not sure if a big old Arctic Outbreak is in the cards for us along the Gulf Coast for February, but more shots of glancing Arctic Fronts are probably likely as we head toward mid month. I see that rodent in PA saw his shadow with light snow falling (someone explain that to me...) but Elsie the Cow in Brenham didn't. We may see a bit better chance of a chilly rain near next weekend if the CPC Day 8+ GEFS Super Ensemble 500mb pattern is correct though.

It WAS nice, wasn't it? I commented to my wife how nice and warm the breeze was. It's been a long time since we've not had a wind that cut right through you.

It has been a winter for sure here in SETX, but after yesterday... I'm getting the spring itch. I do think though we have a good chance at having relatively cool days as we head on the downside of winter and I expect a couple more nights of freezes too. However, I would expect that forecast more in the mid to later part of the month. Sadly for some on here, the hope seems to be fading away with any big arctic intrusions as once hoped a couple weeks ago. But the possibility is there... just slim.

As for this weekend, wouldn't rule out a possible thunderstorm along the coast, mainly in Galveston, Brazoria and Chamber counties depending on how far north that warm front lifts. Other than that, just another Saturday of dreary weather.
If you're getting the spring itch too, head out to south or west TX on Sunday where they will have highs in the mid 80's. :)
