    Texas - How Hot and Dry Is It This Year?

    It’s been so hot …
    It’s been so hot and so dry … | SciGuy | a Chron.com blog
    • That June was the warmest on record in Houston.
    • The month finished with an average temperature of 86.15 degrees, besting a mark set in 1906.
    • The Junes of 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 all rank among the 10 warmest Junes on record.
    • April, May and June of 2011 all rank among the 10 warmest on record in Houston.
    • Houston had seven 100-degree days in June. On average it gets four per decade.
    • August is the city’s warmest month. This June would tied for the eighth warmest August of all time.
    • It’s been so dry…
    • Nearly three-quarters of Texas now falls into an “exceptional” drought, the worst category.
    • The driest nine-month stretch in Texas history ran from June of 1917 through February 1918 (average 9.36 inches)
    • Since Oct. 1, forecasters estimate Texas has had about 8.5 inches of rain.
    • Houston has had 7.9 inches of rain this year. It normally has about 25 inches by now.




    If the combined July-September precipitation for Texas is 5 inches or so, we’ll equal our driest 12 months ever, set from October 1955 to September 1956. Because of the previous years of drought in the 1950s, the current drought still wouldn’t be as bad as then. That’s from a meteorological point of view; impact severity may be different.
    A "gun free zone" is tyrannies playground.

    I understand that fireworks are to be heavily restricted in Texas this 4th of July.

    Are there even going to be fireworks? Isn't there a laser light show in Austin instead of fireworks?

    Re: Texas - How Hot and Dry Is It This Year?

    Just had a house burn smooth to the ground right down the hill from me! Must have started from inside as there was no trees/brush burned outside (lucky for the rest of us!). Nothing left but burned brick (no roof, interior walls etc. Retired couple built it only about 5 or 6 years ago, very nice house and yard (probably over $250K). I'll go down there a little later and see if they can use some help. Excuse the slight thread drift. I'll try to post some cell phone pics later. Keep cool.
