2019 Rain Thread

Recommended Posts

Cold and 25-30mph gusts turned a Cub Scout campout this weekend into a “let’s see if our tens really hold up to their wind-ratings!”


I was supposed to take the kids on a Cub Scout trip this weekend but backed out bc of the weather. I have no interest in finding out how the tent holds up to its wind rating when it's just me, a 7-yo and a 10-yo.

On Thursday both KEYE and KVUE had 100% chance of rain for today.  One hundred percent. Now they’re both at 60%.

Aside from the obvious lack of understand of simple math, I wonder how today is actually going to shake out.

The percentages went down once phdhorn said it would definitely rain.

No, I said "South Austin is definitely a pain."  Someone changed it.

Rain gonna happen today about 3-7 p.m in the Metrohole.  Another round tomorrow morning.
Absolutely.  I'd put the chances squarely between 0% and 100%.  Book it.

Nice little storm here in NB with more coming. Looks like Graham and Jacksboro are about to get fucked up royal by that bow echo.

Cow pissing (but quiet, no T or L) out here in Bee Cave - where it always rains.

Update:  Hailing quarter-sized in that storm west of Lakeway moving NE.   That'll dent cars.  Take care.  Also, these bands are training SW→NE but they will be drifting slowly eastward as the system moves through Texas.  Be on the alert - if this storm just west of ATX can throw down hail, it's a good bet another one will train up and do the same thing.  Cars should be protected next few hours, just in case.

So is it “go find a helmet” , “put on the helmet”, or “bodies in trees”?

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT UNTIL 1:45PM CDT SAT ...SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT... AT 1256 PM CDT, DOPPLER RADAR WAS TRACKING A STRONG THUNDERSTORM NEAR TAYLOR, MOVING NORTHEAST AT 25 MPH.

In Georgetown right now after driving down from DFW and it has been raining nonstop. No hail though. Hope nobody is going north to Dallas. Already passed 3 wrecks and it's backed up.

Time to head on over to Marble Falls. I'll keep track of the body count.

Bodies in trees = 0

Assholes driving without lights on = 5

Lotsa rain and shit in Rosedale.

We just got home, and Shoal River is running pretty good below 45th right now.  Should be some dead kayakers soon.

Could you grab one of their boats for me?  Thanks!

Most of this line is now east of the 35 corridor... should taper off, maybe a few intermittent showers the rest of the day.

Another little wave moving through tomorrow early a.m., another good chance for lighter rain... then it all moves out the rest of Sunday.

Gonna be sunny and mid-80's for much of the coming week!

I drove from Waco to Salado today about noon today and it was raining so hard everyone on 35 had their flashers on.  

I considered turning around but... beer.

If y'all need a safe, dry, rainless place, come to my house. The ground is a little damp, but that's all.

This is the weirdest thunder I’ve ever heard. Been sitting outside for a bit listening to the game. After a while I started thinking it hadn’t stopped thundering for a while. Started the stopwatch on my phone at that point and I’m at 13 minutes and counting without a break in the rumble. But the weird thing is that it sounds more like fighter jets circling than thunder. And explosions in the distance. It’s unsettling

Grandma is on the San Gabriel river, tossed some panels off the barn roof but otherwise unscathed. She’s saying a ‘nader touched down southeast of Cameron but I can’t find any confirmation of that online.

She has a butterfly tattoo on her ass from spring break ‘55 that at this point probably looks like toucan Sam. Nobody wants to see that

Better than a rosebud that turned into a long stem rose.

Just exactly how much damage does it take to "nearly destroy" a Saturn Ion?  A flat tire?

Value of that car was less than the deductible before the hailstorm.

I've been given info that Grapeland had softball sized shots & there was damaging (enough) hail in Kyle & Lockhart.

 

The radar screenshot I saw had a good & purple-ish looking overlay on Wimberley, but reports of hail there haven't come in.

 

Tomorrow, me & the family are coming back to the ATX from Washington, DC.  Been here since Tuesday late.
