There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

One of the reasons I started posting these reports in the format you see is because I noticed that forecasters at the local TV station where I get the weekly predictions often seemed to do a pretty awful job of it, but I stuck with them because the way it was presented on the website was easy to use.

So, for the past several days we've had a 70% chance of rain forecast for today, Wednesday. Well, right now there's bright sunshine out there and no rain has fallen so far, but when I looked at the radar this morning there was plenty heading in the direction of Houston, which looks to have got some decent rainfall from it. Nearly 2½ inches from what I can see. The potential tropical depression from a few days ago never materialised.

But now the National Weather Service has us in an enhanced area for severe weather tomorrow.

Fortunately, we didn't get any flooding in the house today. We weren't so lucky a few weeks ago. smiley - sigh

There's some light rain falling outside, and has been since I woke up at around 4.00, and probably before that as I look at the radar. It's given us 0.2" of rain so far. The potential severe weather that's forecast for today will happen mid afternoon to early evening. In other words, at going home time smiley - rolleyes

The storms (well, storm) did arrive, and, even though (or perhaps, because) I took my umbrella, not at going home time, thankfully, because not only would the umbrella have been useless, it'd be halfway to Brazil by now. At about 3pm we had the most almighty, but brief storm. Pea-sized hail, torrential rain, plenty of thunder and lightning, and one almighty gust of wind which brought down some tree limbs and power lines around town. A few hours later San Antonio got the same. Our gust wasn't quite as bad as this but it wasn't far off http://twitter.com/AdamKrueger/status/1136842864405540865

That 40% chance of rain might be another overnight one, with a possibility of severe weather. More lost sleep smiley - rolleyes

The storms arrived not overnight but an hour or two after I got home, and once again they were pretty fierce. No huge gust like the one last Thursday, but plenty of wind and an inch of rain in a very short time.

Rather wet yesterday, we only got 71mm (pee'd down all day)
quite a bit of local flooding near the Wandle and its feeder streams / ditches.

It's playing havoc with the cricket world cup.

We'd already had a couple of 100° temperatures by this time last year so I reckon we're doing pretty well so far, despite having had some 100°+ heat index readings in the past week or two.

I don't remember if I mentioned it here - my C drive died Monday last week. I had a spare hard drive (although at 2TB it's a bit large for the needs of the OS but it was all I had to hand*) and a Windows disc to get the PC running again, and although I have a weekly backup to an external drive scheduled for the small hours of Saturday morning, so I only lost any files I might have added between then and the crash on Monday, I hadn't been exporting my bookmarks regularly and a lot of them went down the Swannee, including my most useful weather report urls. It's taken me until now to find all the pages I use for this post every day. The National Weather Service makes it bloody hard to find the sort of thing I use.

*I had to take it out of my five-drive RAID box, which I haven't been able to access for several years, but at least it'll rebuild when I put another drive into it. I wish I could get it running again. I'd love to know what's on there, although at 8TB of usable storage, it would actually be too small for all my stuff now. My folder with all the radio I've downloaded or ripped is more than a TB on its own smiley - yikes

We had some storms late last night, a little bit before, and a lot more after, midnight. Which confuses me because according to the three-day observation page for Camp Mabry http://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory/KATT.html there was no rain before midnight, unless it was in the nine minutes between 11.51pm and and 12.00am, and even then, according to the same page, it couldn't have been 0.23" because the reading for the hour from 11.51pm and 12.51am is 0.18". And yet two other NWS pages both say 0.23". They also show only 0.19" for today, so far, and yet the numbers on the three-day page for the storms after midnight add up to 0.42". Which, incidentally is the same number you get if you add 0.19 to 0.23.
