HOUSTON — We begin to see a shift in our overall pattern from hot and dry to seasonable and wet. Emphasis on the wet, we need the rain!
The most recent release of the drought report shows severe and extreme drought conditions expanding over Texas. Rain arriving this weekend will help.
Rain chances taper for Sunday afternoon and remain on the lower end through Monday then once again ramp up Tuesday and Wednesday. They tapper after Thursday morning.
This will be beneficial rain across the state where drought conditions have been worsening week after week.
Locally, rainfall totals spread out over those several days may amount to very beneficial totals for many areas, on the order of 2 to 3 inches.
By Thursday our long range models show a general return to drier conditions and warming temperatures.
