Front to bring rain and touch of autumn next week, but much remains uncertain

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.

More wet weather, a Gulf disturbance, and questions on when we might see a real cold front
Posted: September 14, 2016

We are going into our sixth consecutive day with rainfall being reported in at least some areas of Galveston County. Rainfall amounts overall during this latest wet spell have ranged from around 1 inch over parts of Galveston Island up to nearly 3 inches over some inland locations. Since we are (believe it or not) running below normal for the month so far, I cannot say that the precipitation has been entirely unwelcome. The good news is that wet weather is likely to continue for the next week or two, with heavy amounts possible near the coast.

Rain chances, a cold front and something to watch in the Gulf of Mexico?
Posted: September 09, 2016

A mid to upper-level low, an influx of deep moisture and a sluggish cold front that should stall somewhere over Southeast Texas could bring a good chance of rain this weekend. How much rain falls in Galveston County may be dependent upon where the frontal boundary stalls, with some models keeping the front north of Houston, and others taking it south to the coast. Rain chances locally would be higher if the front does make it to the coast before hitting the brakes.

Back to School
Posted: August 29, 2016

The first day of school is a big deal. Boys and girls alike spend time thinking about that perfect first day outfit (okay, maybe it’s mom), worrying about where they will sit at lunch and if they’ll make new friends. Will they like their new teacher? But the first day of school is also a time to show off how cute your little boy or girl is, and how much they’ve grown over the summer. Here at The Galveston County Daily News we wanted to bring you full coverage of the first day of school throughout the county, and here are some of the photos our readers sent us.
