I had .85" over here. Not as much as others, but I am so glad we got enough to water everything. Today was just beautiful too once the sun came out.

Beautiful late April weather continues into Wednesday when the next upper trough and weaker storm system as seen on water vapor imagery near Utah cross the Southern Plains ushering in a reinforcing shot of drier and cooler air with a chance of some showers and possibly an elevated thunderstorm or two.

Another front arrives Friday in the semi zonal flow with little fan fair other than bringing drier and comfortable weather this weekend for the MS 150 and Ironman Events. Looking back over the years, I honestly cannot remember the last time we have had such a stretch of near or below normal temperatures and NO floods in April. For that we all can be grateful!

.AVIATION [12Z TAF Issuance]...

VFR with high clouds prevail through the forecast period. Light
and variable winds early this morning will return to northwesterly
this morning and increase to 10 to 15 knots for the mid-day and
afternoon. Winds to become light and variable again in the
evening. There is an outside chance for some lower clouds (FEW-
SCT?) to crop up late tonight, particularly at UTS and CXO, but
potential is too low for mention in the TAF.

I completely agree with Steve --

I was just talking to some family and friends over the weekend and was telling them, I can't recall where SETX has had an actual true Winter, followed by a true Spring. Quite remarkable, I think. I can only hope the trend follows in having a 'true' Summer. But I am a little bit more wary on that optimism. :roll:

I've seen enough "true" Brazos Valley summers for sure ;)

Just more of this Chamber of Commerce weather this week. We got a nice soaking Saturday night. All the foliage is green for a change. No complaints about 2018 so far!

It makes up for the 3-4 days of Fall we saw Fall in 2017. :lol: It flipped from a dewpoint of 70°F in early December straight to winter - just like hitting a switch.

I just read there have been no tornadoes in OK so far this year. Wow. If folks in Wisconsin have to freeze in April for our mild spring and tame severe season, well they're used to it anyway... :lol:
