All-time temperature record set
Posted: October 18, 2016

The 88 degree high in Galveston today not only set a warm temperature record for the date — eclipsing an 87 degree high in 2007 — but also is the hottest temperature ever seen on the Island this late in the season since observations began in 1871.

Friday to bring cold front and gusty winds, cool down may not last long
Posted: October 17, 2016

In many ways, October has been a repeat of September with much above normal temperatures. Through the 16th, the October monthly average for Galveston was 80.3° (which is 3.9° above normal). If the month were to end today or tomorrow, this October would be the warmest since observations began in 1871. Even with a cold front expected by Friday, the month could match September’s record of being the 3rd warmest ever.

Speaking of strange hurricane tracks
Posted: October 10, 2016

I received a number of calls last week, including one from my wife, asking about some model projections which had Hurricane Michael turning back south, crossing either Florida or Cuba and ending up in the Gulf of Mexico. I answered that it was far too soon to worry about this. Projections that far out often fail to materialize and the odds were fairly slim that the storm would take such an unusual track.

Hurricane Matthew, Tropical Storm Nicole and the prospect of a near ideal weekend locally
Posted: October 04, 2016

Dangerous Category 4 Hurricane Matthew, with 145-mph sustained winds, is moving through eastern Cuba today with the Bahamas and parts of the Southeastern U.S. in its projected path. In addition, a second storm, Tropical Storm Nicole has formed northeast of Puerto Rico in the open Atlantic. Meanwhile, Galveston Island basks in warm, early October weather with the prospect looming of another nearly perfect weekend, weather-wise..

Two records, a gradual return to summer-like weather, and a look at the tropics
Posted: September 30, 2016

A 66° reading this morning at Scholes Field in Galveston brought the coolest temperature to the Island since May 27th. Cool, dry high pressure will set the stage for near perfect early autumn weather for this weekend. In addition, the cool-down over the past couple of days will keep this September from going into the record books as the warmest ever since observations began in 1871. Instead, September, 2016 will likely end up being either the 2nd or the 3rd warmest ever, depending on how the temperatures today impact the final monthly average. Still, the relief was more than welcome after a seemingly endless summer.

Front to bring rain and touch of autumn next week, but much remains uncertain
Posted: September 23, 2016

An influx of deep Gulf moisture, a low pressure trough to the west and a cold front expected to move into Texas by Sunday will bring us periods of shower and thunderstorm activity through the weekend into next week. Some heavy rain will be possible in our area, especially from Sunday night into late Monday or early Tuesday. In addition, the front should move to the coast by late Monday or early Tuesday, delivering more seasonably appropriate temperatures to Galveston County.

Posted: September 20, 2016

Yesterday saw another day and another late season heat advisory. Based on the temperatures this month and projected warmth over the coming 7 days, this month is on track to become the hottest September in Galveston County since records began in 1871.
