High temperatures and Runways?
You’ve probably heard jokes asking why the weather report comes from the airport when “no one lives there”? Without question, knowing weather conditions is paramount for pilots and, thus, official weather reporting stations around the country are at airports. And before all the technology of the last decades, having a person present most of the time to take and report the weather readings was important too! In addition, high-level weather equipment is expensive to own and maintain and governments have to pick the most efficient and necessary spot for placement. Again, airports.
No 100 Degrees? That’s so NOT this Century!
We know it gets hot aound here and so for us not to reach 100F this year is certainly worth a mention. Of course, as you’ll see, we can easily get to the century mark in September so don’t get too comfortable in your wool sweaters just yet! Also, Hobby did record 100 in June and Galveston made 97 just this past Monday which is their hottest temperature so far this year.
What to know about February
One of my viewers, Lourdes, wrote me this last Tuesday:Frank, What happened to your prediction of La Nina ruling this winter? You said it would be a dry, warm winter. It’s the warm water that heats the air above it. That hot air rises, condenses and forms clouds which produce rain. AdWe both know that it’s usually a roller coaster around here and it wouldn’t surprise me to see a cold snap or two.

Shults said: “Home like they should be.”Every airport system in America is concerned over travel numbers plunging well over 90% during the pandemic. Steve Hennigan, the Chief of Operations for the Houston Airport System, summed up the situation in one word: “slower.”The numbers show it.

Morning showers expected with another warmer-than-normal day ahead
KPRCHOUSTON - A few stray morning showers this morning give way to another warmer-than-normal day! It will be cooler than Saturday when two records were broken or tied in Galveston and Hobby Airports BUT...there will still be chances to tie records today at Hobby and Galveston where temps are expected to reach the record temps of 96 and 94 degrees, respectively. Rain chances will be minimal today with the highest chances along the coast. Rain chances will be on the rise tomorrow as tropical moisture makes its way toward the Texas coast and setting us up for heavy rain mid-week. The National Hurricane Center has dropped chances of development for that area to 20% through the next five days, which means it is VERY unlikely to happen.
Scorching weekend ahead as heat wave continues
HOUSTON - Saturday is expected to be another scorcher as rain continues to elude our area. The morning will be the best time of the day, with temperatures mostly in the mid-70s and a relatively dry atmosphere. After tying or breaking record high temperatures Friday, we will once again hit those heights Saturday with highs near 100 degrees at Bush and Hobby airports, which would be records. If we hit 94 degrees in Galveston, it will tie the record first set in 1876. There will be no rain this weekend and no heat advisory because of the drier air, but we should all drink water like there is one in effect.
