Looks like we'll be getting more rain about Friday night or so. There is some talk of it freezing over, but let's just keep our fingers crossed.

Tuesday morning's rain was a good start, but we've got a ways to go.

We need at least two or three days of good rain for it to start to do some good. I hope it doesn't ice over on Saturday. My daughter and I are going to Central Market in Fort Worth. We don't go often but it's a treat when we do. I lived in Germany as a kid when my dad was in the Air Force and I love to get their German bread and deli meats. And such a variety of products from around the world in that store!

There's a good chance of that, blueskies. Like about three days worth all weekend long.

Well, that's fantastic, KT. And that's the way it should be. You'll have nice green grass and Lake Conroe will have great boating and jet-skiing this year. Hey, you guys are set!!

Just pray for the rest of us.

Warm front will be backing up to meet the cold front coming and severe weather is expected tomorrow evening. Tornadoes will be more apt to form from Waco, south, and southeast. Straight line winds and large hail may be a problem as well for many of us.

I heard on the news that the month of February in the U.S. usually only has 25 or so tornadoes and this February, the country has already had 96. I hope Texas isn't one of the states that jack up that total tomorrow.

Lots of rain is expected with a huge coverage.

Yeah, NWS has it at about 45% chance of seeing hail, tornadoes, etc. on Saturday in the Houston coverage area. Chances could go up by morning. Weather wise folks are saying it could be biggest outbreak since 1992 that spawned some very damaging tornadoes in this area. The one that hit Channelview was an F-4 and that is very rare in SE TX. The straight line winds alone could cause some significant damage too.
