2017 has been a rough and tragic year for many in Texas (Harvey and Sutherland Springs), Florida (Irma), Puerto Rico (Maria), and Nevada (Las Vegas).

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Hurricane-less 2018.

It's been quite a year - and one I hope we don't have to repeat. The weather group I've been in since 2005 has
seen devastation...everyone of us has been hit...- especially my friends living in the Carib.

Special blessings going out to responders - who are still working it with Harvey along the Texas coast. :cry:
and those still displaced...

I'm off to the Hill Country with hot chocolate and hot toddies packed - I'll see how cold it really gets.

Blessings to all who work this forum!

^Amen. Thanks for all you do for the special needs community.



We hit a peak of 60° in the late morning, but after a dry frontal passage the north wind has kicked up a bit more than expected. N 26 G33 A light freeze in CLL and Conroe, then 40s and low 50s.

One more day of sun - Christmas Day before a few days of on and off rain.

Potentially some very chilly air in the New Year horizon per GFS, Canadian and GEFS ensemble...but, for now it remains still on the horizon. Marry Christmas all!

Chilly Christmas morning with lows in the 30s everywhere except the immediate coast. Highs will remain in the upper 50s to low 60s. Overnight return flow will resume and rain chances will increase for the rest of the week. Very good chance we will break 80 inches of rain for the year. Looking at the long range we may see some cold air New Years but I suspect models are having difficulty right now. We can continue to monitor that over the next couple days. Everyone have a good Christmas and enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Looks like a chilly, raw and gloomy couple of days with temperatures struggling to get out of the 40's with light rain. We may get a break on Thursday before the next storm system passes overhead in this very progressive pattern. Still a very low confidence forecast for New Years Eve as the models are totally out of sink with each other. We'll look at New Years Eve later in the week regard what our sensible weather may bring as we ring in the New Year.

The cold and gloomy weather looks to continue throughout the rest of December with pesky clouds courtesy of that noisy sub tropical jet. We may warm to the mid 50's Saturday into early Sunday before the bottom falls out with the strong Arctic Front New Years Eve. Never made it above 41F yesterday with a raw and drizzly NE wind.

There is something momentous about the last day of the year. It looks like 2017 will quietly leave us, but this weather year has left us with some indelible memories including Hurricane Harvey and our perfect 12/8 snow day.

I have so enjoyed, and depended on, this weather forum to get me through each mundane and major weather event that has occurred. Thanks to you all.

Good bye 2017.

Happy new year!

As 2017 ends, we have experienced a myriad of weather events together from Severe Weather last January 2nd to sleet on January 6th to Flooding rainfall events to Hurricane Harvey to a surprise Regional wide snow event on December 7th and 8th to our current Arctic mini Outbreak. Along the journey, many have suffered so much loss during this year with many still attempting to rebuild from Catastrophic Harvey Flooding. As we begin an New Year and my 12th year as Administrator, I want to wish you all a Very Happy 2018. Thanks to all of you! It's because of you that our KHOU Weather Forum continues to grow and become a reliable source for weather information. We have come a long way since 2001 when the KHOU Weather Forum started.

2017 has been a very eventful year weatherwise and outside of weather. There was Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Many are still recovering. There is also the wildfires that struck Northern and Southern California. Hope for a better 2018.
