Popcorn sea breeze showers popping up tantalizingly close. Hope we see one or two IMBY. New rain gauge emptied, poised, and ready. Fill'er up!

GFS is a bit wetter than last week through early June, with a half inch to inch of rain/week. Topical development near Florida against in late May.

Canadian brings a TS into the Central Gulf next weekend.

Liquid GOLD coming down now in CLL.

Flood advisory in Harris Co, Montgomery Co, particularly areas that saw a deluge yesterday:

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 2:54 PM CDT May. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in League City has issued a

* urban and small stream flood advisory for poor drainage areas
for...
southwestern Montgomery County in southeastern Texas...
northwestern Harris County in southeastern Texas...

* until 500 PM CDT.

* At 253 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause urban and small stream flooding.
Overflowing poor drainage areas will result in minor flooding in
the advisory area. Up to one inch of rain has already fallen in
parts of the advisory area per hcfcd rain gauges.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Tomball, Jersey Village, Pinehurst, Addicks park ten, northeastern
Eldridge / West Oaks, Spring Branch west, Magnolia, Stagecoach,
Cypress, Dobbin, Addicks and Memorial.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

A flood advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding
of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.

that was some scary/crazy lightning here, sounded like a bomb at one point - lost power for a bit, internet & phones for about an hr

look at the 5 & 10 minute data - nearly 1/2" in 5 minutes at one point, over 3/4" in 10

we won't have to water for a little while :)
