Texas/Oklahoma Discussion & Obs Thread 2022


Recommended Posts

12z GFS and EURO runs were definitely the hottest yet in the long range, 

It seems although the temps/drought aren't as extreme as in 1980 and 2011, the pattern is definitely rhyming.

FWIW, 2022 has tied in 2nd (just shy one day for #1) for the most number of 90°F+ days to-date in Dallas.

Will need confirmation that temps didn't drop intra-hour, but yet another record high minimum was set at DFW this morning of 82*F (previous record being 80*F in 2019).

Although DFW did drop intra-hour to 81°F, that still breaks the previous record.

High based but decent TCU around Houston.  Very little on radar, but while out watering, I could see planes on final to IAH briefly being partially obscured by the virga.

 

OT, Using the word 'virga' in predominantly Hispanic class rooms will make most of the students snicker.  It sounds like the Spanish slang word for the phallus.

An occasional Euro or GFS has suggested the inverted trough trying to become a weak TC or STC the last few days, today, the op GFS showing what would be a good thing, a weak system.  The rain is needed.

If it's any consolation, that's less bad than when what it looked like in early May, and nowhere near how bad it was in 2011

The MCS train at the end of May / early June really ate away at the edges in North Texas, the Arlatex region and much of OK.

If Dallas sees another 100°F high today (will be a nail biter depending on the timing of the cold front and cloud cover/precip during the afternoon), it would be the 4th highest number on record for June, only behind 1953, 1980 and 2011.

Officially 100°F at DFW as of 3pm.

EDIT: Today's high was 101°F.

99* at 6 pm, high was 100* in Houston,  Breeze made it bearable in Galveston, even if the water temp is in the upper 80s.  NWS HGX, 50% rain tomorrow and only 95*

 

Have I mentioned one actually gets chilly coming out of the water when its breezy?  I had one ~2 foot shark to the beach, he was hooked, but came off.  A couple of other good bites, but zero fish caught,

That late June sun angle can work wonders.

DFW made it to 94*F today, several degrees above forecast. However, the dewpoint were a decent bit higher (mid/uper 60s), so the heat index was at 96*F.

Furthermore, with a low of 73*F, the day will end exactly at average for the record book.

That said, this is the first time since 6/10 that the high was less than 95*F.
