Finally!

video
We finally got some decent rainfall today. It rain pretty much all morning, until sometime during 12 pm, when it stopped raining. The forecaster's at NOAA said that it would probably stop raining during the afternoon, due to some dry air moving in, so it might have rained all day, if it weren't for the dry air, but that's ok. We finally got some decent rain!

Well.....

That was a bust! No rain! Just a few light sprinkles in the morning. I hope we we'll get some rain tomorrow, if it's still in the forecast. I thought my area was supposed to be the have's, not the have not's. That was what the NOAA weather forecast said that there will be "the have's and the have nots." But my neighborhood was supposed to be the have's. I am located just south of I-10. Oh well.... Hopefully tomorrow we'll get some rain.

Still Waiting!

So, i'm still waiting for that possible rain. Wondering whether the tropical moisture will turn into a tropical storm. I read on NOAA's weather forecast discussion for Houston, that there is only a 10% chance of tropical development with the tropical moisture, or tropical wave that is headed towards Houston. NOAA says that there is too much wind shear for the tropical moisture to develop into a depression, or storm. That's ok I just want to see some rain. Although, as I mentioned before in my last post. Having a tropical depression, or storm, may mean more rain for Houston, but not too much rain, I hope! If Houston gets too much rain at once, then we'll start getting flash flooding, due to the lack of rainfall. That wouldn't be good! So maybe it's better off, that the tropical moisture doesn't turn into a tropical depression, or storm.
UPDATE: So I just checked the extended forecast for Houston, on The Weather Channel's website and they only give Houston and 40% chance of rain for Sunday and only a 30% chance of rain for Monday and Tuesday. I hope their not thinking that the moisture is going to miss us. I hope not. Fingers crossed!

Excited About The Possible Rain!

Looks like we got some rain chances in the forecast all next week! I hope we get some rain! I have been enjoying this warm, dry air, that we've been getting in Houston, this past week. A great break from the record heat and moist air that we got last week. Although I have been enjoying this nice dry air. Houston really needs some rain, especially my neighborhood. I don't know, if we even got, but a few rain drops, in my neighborhood, this past June. I hope we get alot of rainfall next week, like the forecasters said. It all depends on varying factors and which way the tropical wave is heading. Hopefully in our direction. Houston could really use the rain.
