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.

Our rain prospects and keeping an eye on the Tropics
Posted: August 24, 2016

Mostly dry, hot weather has returned to Southeast Texas, but the outlook is for rain chances to improve later this week and remain reasonably high through the early part of next week. The high pressure that built back into our area over the past few days is expected to retreat back north. This will allow for an influx of deep Gulf moisture in association with an upper-level trough expected to move west.
