And here we are in DFW about to get another serious bout of rain this am. If I could send it down south, I most certainly would.

There's a big rain line coming towards us... but no chance of rain in our forecast today..

I'm guessing it will break up because of high pressure before getting here.

LOL!

I've seen the rain headed toward SA on many occasions, and then falls apart as it runs into what I assume is a high pressure ridge sitting over the area.

Yeah the ridge is on top of us... there's a SLIGHT chance that maybe tonight or tomorrow a storm make it here.


As far as our record... we'll see if we make 100 in Climate records released at 6... otherwise our record will be tied whenever we hit 100 again.

Anthony, if you're not a professional meteorologist, you should be. I've read many of your posts and you really seem to know your stuff. Keep up the good work for us here on CD.

Thank you both for the high praise... very much appreciated. Hard to reply, but I'm truly flattered.


Wanted up update, our 100 tally remains at 35 days. Our official high was 98... so the suspense continues.

Anthony, back in the mid 80s I was a broadcast engineer. I worked with Jim Spencer, who is currently the chief weathercaster at KXAN in Austin. I don't think Jim has a meteorology degree, but he is a darned good weather man. Give him a shout sometime and tell him Mike from KTEN said hello. I emailed him a few years back and he's the same nice guy he was when I worked with him.

Jim is a good man, and would probably be happy to give you career advice.
