You never know. It's still chilly and nasty out there and with a high impact solar event to hit the Northern Hemisphere today, things could change down the road. The sun has been extremely quiet throughout the Winter and now we are seeing solar activity pick up. The MJO after being stuck in a very high amplitude in Phase 7 looks to trend toward a less amplified Phase 8 which impacts our part of the World. The latest CFSv2 Climate Models suggest March may come in like a lion with more wild weather and below normal temperatures. Time will tell.

.AVIATION...
Upper disturbance kicking off the shra/tstms across the e/ne parts
of the area will be moving out of the region this afternoon.
Should see another hour or two of tstm treat in the metro area,
then back to iso/sct shra for the remainder of the day.
Regardless, anticipate mainly IFR conditions throughout the day. A
warm front will be moving toward the coast and inland overnight.
Look for typical conditions associated with these features:
periods of dz, -ra, fog & low ceilings. IFR/LIFR conditions will
persist until close to lunch time Wed before slow improvement
occurs. 47

That's a late winter La Nina pattern.


Is there a risk of an early severe season for Texas in March and early April?

In 2011--a La NiƱa year-- tornadoes killed more than 550 people, higher than in the previous 10 years combined.

Something to keep in mind as the SW flow continues and temps will ride up and down the roller coaster. Rodeo season and Spring Break could feature some bronco busting cells. Be careful what you wish for re: warm weather with this pattern.

Bring it. Last year was the first time in years when either the cold shelf waters or the cap didn't kill the whole season. Would be nice to see some action for a change.

And yes, I can say this because I had to replace my roof after last April's ten-minute hail storm. ;-)
