A look back in remembrance. I so remember this day..the trip home from work listening to Paul Finebaum on Sirius XM ( who is now on ESPN Radio) and the errieness in the broadcasts ( he stated..we will be back ( going to commercial break), I hope to watching the tornado rip through Birmingham Alabama...

It was horrific. My parents and several generations before them are from the Birmingham and Cullman areas. I lived in Birmingham during my first year of college, and somehow hit the jackpot with the 1993 Superstorm. It was the first time the media started using the term "explosive cyclogenesis" and the first (and only) time I experienced thundersnow.

Anyway, I will never forget this day. It was pretty nerve wracking. Not long after, I flew into B'ham for a funeral and I could clearly see the tornado scars from the Tuscaloosa and Gardendale tornadoes. They looked like the "Finger of God" flyover scene from the movie Twister. It was amazing and yet so sad to see in person. Like most things, seeing it in real person versus a TV screen is completely different.

Incidentally - Paul Finebaum is great. I used to listen to his radio show in B'ham when it was still just a local show, and any ole' Billy-Bob calling in would get plenty air time. Then he hit the big time. One of the best sports commentators anywhere in all of broadcasting history - he is great!

The result is a bunch of slight chance and low end chance PoPs splattered
throughout the entire first half of the week. In other words...the
most recent XKCD comic (Number 1985, for posterity) is
disturbingly appropriate to my situation tonight and I`ll be
keeping my eye out for security for the rest of my shift...

Another more significant chance of rain looks to be on tap just
beyond the end of this forecast period. Guidance is very gung ho
on rain, and if this period were a part of the official forecast,
I`d undercut it significantly on PoPs. This is partly due to
range, and partly due to the underperformance of the last couple
of fronts. Let`s be honest, here - the nascent beginning of a
seabreeze pattern, some more spacing between fronts, more
underwhelming fronts, and the fact that it`s late April...We`re
not there yet, and there`s still some springtime to be had in the
coming weeks, but it`s time to brace yourselves, as summer is
coming.


haha. I would call this Maytag Repairman weather. No need to be on call.


Another Chamber of Commerce day - more like Spring in North Carolina than TX.

The last day of the month is here and it looks likely that SE Texas will end the month at all for Climo Reporting sites with below normal temperatures and below normal rainfall. Overall I would say that we had a fantastic month with the cooler than normal temperatures and generally lower humidity. Our electric Bills should reflect this actual Spring Like weather we've experienced. :D

Loved the temps but we needed more rain than what we got. Let's hope we can have decent rainfall in the month of May headed into the hot summer months.
