The Galveston County Daily News: Texas City

Texas City

Two records, a gradual return to summer-like weather, and a look at the tropics

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.
