Looks like the jet stream has us locked out.

Yes, sir, but hopefully the models are wrong about the high pressure and Texas gets some much-needed rain.

Same high as 2011 , so much high and dry in 2011 it ate tropical storm Don
I remember the high level of excitement about Don sliding across Baffin Bay ready to soak
South west Texas & Mexico , only to get eaten by the massive system stalled over Texas , utter disappointment, seems like it’s a repeat

The most recent NOAA update says La Niña is likely to cause the current jet stream pattern continue through the end of the year. If so that means a warm/dry Fall and early winter. ( Except of course the annual “run off the doves storm”)

I thought we were supposed to have a highly active hurricane season. They were wrong, again!

I'm glad to see the corn belt is getting rain. They've been pretty dry, too. We are one day closer to the next rainfall.

At least N Texas is now getting some afternoon pop-up showers here and there. We got 3/8 yesterday and 60% chance this afternoon. Looked like Jacksboro area got some this morning. Certainly no drought breakers but maybe it will help some.

Edit: well our 60% chance just dropped to 30%

We got a good shower midday today. Fast and furious ...just a shade under 4/10s. Walked outside in the middle of it to check my new gutters without an umbrella and didn't even care I got soaked!

We got a pretty good rain yesterday at our place in Sheridan. Caught it on the Reolink camera. Went over today and tracked into the building as the ground was still pretty soft.

Ha! That’s a good way to describe a drought. I have a small stand of green turf around my two septic sprinklers - takes about 2 minutes to mow that once a week

Got a great soaking rain yesterday am. Also, had several periods of downpours. The wife and I were installing a French drain. It sure made the ground easy to dig! We were soaking wet and didn’t complain once. Glad to get it!

Night before weather predicted we could see some decent rain possibly 1-2” & it dwindled quickly

We have several young citrus trees we've replaced since the 2020 freeze. We water them on a regular basis. That's the only places we have to mow

Heard a loud clap of thunder this afternoon which was a pleasant surprise. Looked on the radar and noticed it appeared to have missed Sulphur Springs but quickly flared up immediately south of there. Got a lite shower further west for which I thanked God out loud for.

More is training from the OK/TX state lines and is moving south as it develops. A warning was just issued for a storm near Sanger.
