I haven't written any new weather blogs in a couple of weeks because there hasn't been much to talk about. July is generally a dry month and this one is living up to its reputation, except for the abundance of humidity!
This afternoon, the second of 3 tropical waves is moving into South Texas, where they don't need the extra rain. So far, San Antonio has been limited to a few short lived "random poppers", which have avoided my backyard like the plague! After Saturday, our rain chances quickly evaporate into the July sunshine and according to the latest info at 4pm, the Hurricane Center thinks the depression in the Caribbean will move into Louisiana, putting San Antonio on the dry and hot side of the system.
Fortunately, it's still early in the tropical season and hopefully some "light duty" storms will work their way into our area before we slip into another drought. Speaking of drought, it is looking as though La is about to re-emerge in the Pacific again. If so, look for a dry and moderate winter for this upcoming season. For more info, click here.
