Yesterday was the first day since (I can't be bothered to look back through the posts but probably April or May) that I didn't have to turn either the a/c or the heater, all day long and even though I had the oven on in the afternoon. Not so today - the heater's on to warm the bathroom up before I get in the shower ready for work.

I turned off the A/C and opened windows on my way out the door this morning. I could easily have done so yesterday, at least yesterday evening.

I had the windows open on Monday. The first time I've been able to get some fresh air in the place since whenever it was.

It used to take two cold fronts to completely wash away the summer. We've had (at least) three so far and we're still looking at temperatures in the 90s for the weekend. It won't be too long before the weather here really starts to look like that summer/summerer/christmas graphic.

That's three days in a row the average of the day's high and low temperatures have been below the seasonal average. It won't happen today. Today (and tomorrow) we might break, or at least equal, the high temperature record. Still, at least this morning I should be able to go to work in shirtsleeves instead of a jacket, and not be sweltering in the hot sun - in a jacket - when I come home this evening, because it's 17° warmer right now than it was this time yesterday.

I slept through the rain as the front came through between 3am and 4am (bringing temperatures down from 80 to 67), the same rain that's currently drenching Houston. Another, stronger, front arrives on Thursday. Could this be the week we finally say goodbye to summer?

I certainly hope that next front moves through on Thursday. I'm heading back to TRF this weekend. I don't mind a few scattered showers, but I'd like any downpours to be over with by Friday afternoon.

Today's rain is being forecast to arrive late afternoon and bring 2"-2½" of rain plus a slight possibility of severe weather. Oh I do hope so.

I always look back at this day one year ago when I do this. This time last year we were in the middle of the dodgy water episode in Austin which, to the best of my recollection, was something to do with zebra mussels getting into a pipe.

There's a very useful database of climate observations, going back for the entire local record I think, that I use occasionally, but for the past few weeks I've been getting this:

Due to fiscal year contract processing restrictions, NOWData will be unavailable for a short period. In the meantime, please use the National Centers for Environmental Information's (NCEI) Climate Data Online (CDO) resource.

That was a storm and a half. My electricity went off a couple of times, firstly not much more than a flicker, but then for about 30-40 seconds - more than enough to shut down to computer and necessitate resetting all the digital clocks, except for my radio alarm which has a backup battery. The wind was tremendous, and still is. We had a 39° wind chill at 7am, after an 86° heat index yesterday afternoon. I've seen plenty of 4" and 5" rain totals in the region, one of 6" and one of 7".

And it's been snowing in the Panhandle.

What a day for the landscapers (that's gardeners in British English) to show up, with 30-40mph gusts blowing all the leaves around.
