Does anyone think we will have a "normal" year weather wise in Amarillo? Will there be any severe weather season? What about the drought? Will it continue, along with the wildfires like we had last year? I want some storms this year!

Aren't you the meterology major? Tell us! Looks like the Midwest may be in for a drought if the present lack of precipitation continues through the winter. I would think that will also incorporate the TX Panhandle.

So far the upper level winds have allowed several storm systems to take the southern route through here. What a difference a year makes-- green fields and blooms!

I have mowed the lawn (okay, my teenager mowed... ) more this year already, than I did all of last summer. Hope we continue on the cooler and wetter thing we have going now. Last year made me want to move *WAY* far away, to get away from the unceasing heat.

Did it really hail 4 feet north of town on 287? Or were those drifts? Either way it's fascinating.

The heaviest hail was extremely localized, so in that location, yes it did hail that much. The whole area from Dumas to Canyon received rain and hail, but in that particular place it was absolutely covered up. I watched the wunderground radar for several hours and an ugly little cloud stayed in the same place for hours and hours, and obviously it was just dumping hail while it was parked.

It's been a few weeks since I logged on here...nice to see the replies. It does seem that we may be headed back to a more "normal" weather pattern. Spring and summer are so boring without the storms. Plus, I don't want another $260. water bill (like I had last May) from sprinkling the sod.
