A second chance at rain?

The latest system to roll through Texas failed again to bring any meaningful precipitation to Galveston County. With the long, hot days of summer looming, our chances for slipping into severe drought conditions are certainly on the high side.

Still there may be some hope for relief this coming week, as an approaching cold front and upper-level low pressure trough, combined with deep low level moisture should give us another chance at significant rain around Tuesday.

At least that is what the latest GFS Model thinks and the forecast models, in general, seem to be saying. Of course, we’ve seen our hopes dashed already on several occasions this spring.

In any case, we better hope this one pans out because the very same models are not projecting much rain through the 25th of May. On the other hand, they are suggesting that we will see a couple of cool fronts over the next two weeks, so I guess we will not slip too quickly into summer-tine temperatures.
