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.
