Weekend Weather/Welcome Twins!/Golf Tournament

Another copious round of rain in Houston this evening. Flood Warnings were issued again as rain swollen creeks and rivers received even more rain. Looks like a disturbance that came in from central Texas, combined with plenty of moisture, and unstable atmosphere and very weak cap--were just the right combination. More thunderstorms are possible Saturday pm (but without any shortwave, it shouldn't be as intense). Still severe indices are low and there will be plenty of moisture. So, make a backup plan for outdoor activities just in case.

Weather in Houston this weekend will be warm, breezy and muggy with a few thunderstorms.

The country is divided (diagonally) with warm and moist air (highs in the 80s and 90s) east and cool (highs in the 40s and 50s) west. My sister in Tahoe said it snowed this morning. Look for thunderstorms from Texas to Michigan and slightly eastward (but including Texas) on Sunday. Jet stream pattern is a southward dip over the Rockies. That means the Gulf is "open for business" and that is what we are seeing.

Let's do identical twins or gemelos idénticos, pronounced hay-meh-LOS ee-DEHN-tee-cohs. Congratulations to Ned and Danielle Hibberd on the birth of their identical twins. See AND MORE section for details.

Ned and Danielle, I'm looking ahead to shooting for future volumes of our educational DVD series. Of course, we'll use Teddy again. But it is going to be fun to have twin boys in there! Our Volume 1 had one set of identical twin girls, Samantha and Gabriella. I'm talking about our award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, is all about play. You can order your copy from You can also order from,,,,,, and Volume 2 is almost ready for release and Volume 3 will follow soon thereafter!!! For our English as a Second Language (ESL) version, got to

As soon as I get a photo of the twins, I'll be sure to put it in our blog. Congratulations to Ned and Danielle on the birth of Michael Thomas and Alexander James. Now, here is the really amazing thing! Today is their birth day of course. But it is also their big brother Teddy's birthday (he's 3 today) and their Mom's birthday. Happy Birthday Danielle! Wow! You know how to celebrate!

Today was the Weather Museum's Golf Classic at the Wildcat Golf Course. That's me with former Weather Channel celebrities Marshall Seese and Keith Westerledge. And of course, I got my good friend and FOX 26 meteorologist, John Dawson and Benjamin, meteorologist and master golf tournament coordinator from The Weather Museum. Dr. Neil Frank was also there...but I missed him somehow. Thanks so much to all the participants!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!
