Sun returns, but gusty cold front to bring high winds and a chill
Posted: December 06, 2016

The welcome sight of bright sunshine greeted area residents today, following record rains that brought up to 14.77 inches to parts of the County. Elsewhere, Scholes Field officially measured 9.83 inches during the rain event and League City a more modest, though hardly inconsequential, 6.59 inches. Galveston needs only 0.46 inch of rain through the 31st to have its wettest December ever.

A dry, mild week ahead, but rain is possible Friday, followed by a cool weekend
Posted: November 14, 2016

Unless you are a gardener or ready for real fall weather to set in, this week should be near ideal. Mostly sunny skies, with cool to mild nights and mild to warm afternoons will continue through Thursday or Friday. In fact, temperatures may even reach 80° over inland areas of the County by Thursday or Friday.

As anyone who lives on Galveston Island or anywhere on the mainland is aware, this is not your typical weekend. An estimated 400,000 people will attend the Lone Star Rally in Galveston, adding to traffic congestion from Houston to the coast.
