So a post a few weeks ago asked "when do you think Houston will see the first day that the temps don't get out of the 70's?" If you picked October, you win - - weather forcast shows highs of 76 later this week.

Maybe we will have a chilly winter despite the infernal summer.

I said October 6th but I think everyone lost that one.

Any guesses for when Houston will see its first high below 80°F?

I think the fist temp in the 70's was October 9th when we had all that rain. I don't count that though because it wasn't a genuine temp change. I am soooooo glad that its going to be in the 70's this week... At least for a few days, anyway.

According to my profs at SFA back in '98 when I was still a student there, due to the um.....abnormal.....weather situation, summers will be hotter and winters more severe, which is how it seems to be working out. Remember last year's 18 degree low temps three nights in a row? I don't remember us EVER having that many such crazy cold days here one after the other & I've lived here since 1973. Then there's all that snow we've been getting, starting with that white Christmas Eve back in 2004, flurries in several other years and then last year's morning "snow storm" that lasted for several hours - hours! - and the snow on the ground lasted nearly the entire day, also something I never saw happen here before.

I wonder what the winter of 2012, leading up to December 21st will be like.......
