RAIN CHANCES INCREASE THIS WEEK....FINALLY
Finally, some really positive news for us. The Major models (GFS, ECMWF, NAM) are now holding consistent regarding next week's rain opportunities as far in as Central and South Texas. The best bets appear to be Monday and Tuesday, as moderate-strong showers and thunderstorms could enter the region for the first time in AWHILE. Most spots could pick up a healthy quarter to three quarters of an inch of rain, but isolated spots that see a heavier storm or two, locally, could see very beneficial rainfall. Also, Monday and Tuesday will see variable drops in temperatures as a result, as well. 'BOUT TIME! Due to consistent model agreement, both with intensities and timing, and in conjunction with the latest model output and the National Weather Service, I have placed rain chances as the following for next week: MON: 30%. TUE: 60%! WED: 20%. THU: 10%. Who's ready?! ....I should see all hands raised.. :)
LAKE LEVEL CHECK
Travis: 97% Full, 679.5ft. Temp: 87 Degrees.
Buchanan: 94% Full, 1017.8ft. Combined Storage: 96%.
Let's see what this next week of rain chances will do to the lakes, which remain in pretty good capacity already! Check the full data, here. http://hydromet.lcra.org/riverreport/report.aspx
SLIGHT BREAK FROM SERIOUS HEAT?
With some moderate rain chances this week, models hold consistent in the downwards trend of dropping our Temps into the 90's for the middle part of the week. It isn't much, but its far better than the 100's with indices in the 110's. You'll be able to tell the difference!...
