The afternoon Updated Precipitation Forecast for Day 6 to 10 and Day 8 to 14 suggests wet weather may return as we end March and begin April.

The overnight ECMWF and GEFS Ensembles continue to advertise a pattern early/mid next week conducive of developing some rather wide spread rainfall with the possibility of heavy thunderstorms as a deep Western trough taps into some
Eastern Pacific moisture and abundant moisture off the Gulf overhead. While it is too soon to know the exact details of exactly how much rainfall may occur, other than the Canadian model which blasts the cold front offshore, the ensemble mean suggest a stationary frontal boundary may be the most likely solution this far out. We will watch the carefully throughout the rest of the week into the weekend and 'fine tune' the forecast of what our next week sensible weather may bring.

Perfect SE TX weather for the 1st day of Spring 2018. The Spring Equinox arrived at 11:15AM this morning. Blue skies, temps in the upper 60s & low 70s, humidity in the upper 20s & low 30s, and dew points in the upper 30s this evening……..the definition of Chamber of Commerce weather for it gets no better.

The wind was cold this afternoon if you were sitting in the shade. Otherwise a nice day. Hoping for similar weather with no wind tomorrow so I can fly my drone in sunny weather.

You got your wish. No rain here for 3 weeks, going on 4. It’s drying-up fast and we need some rain for the plants. Come this summer folks will be wishing we had a wet spring.


Sunday's severe storms brought an inch of rain and 2-3 inch hail. Weather cuts both ways in Texas! :lol:

What a pleasant 46F this morning in NW Harris County. Major storms on the West Coast and East Coast mean Texas is Ridge City for the next couple of days. No real chance of any rainfall until possibly next Tuesday through Friday as a very slow moving storm system organizes across the Southern Rockies and Northern Mexico. Fingers crossed we can get at least some rain to was away the pollen.
