Hot is the word!/A free weather event

Hot is the word today across the south and southwest--lots of 90s including in Texas and the Houston area! There will be several areas with thunderstorms including the central plains and parts of the southeast. Check out the forecast from the Storm Prediction Center (at right). Nice and cool across the northern states with some locations enjoying highs in the 50s.

Houston is hot and steamy through the weekend...highs in the 90s. There is a hint of a slight cool down with slightly reduced humidity early in the coming week...and a slight chance for showers--but not big changes!

Let's do laughter or risas, pronounced ree-SAHS. Risas is the best medicine! I thought of this as Gordy and Sarah shared a happy moment this morning.

There are lots of laughing and happy kids (46 in all!) in our award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco. 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

HOUSTON—Celebrate Weather Pioneer Day, a FREE event at The John C. Freeman Weather Museum, the nation’s first and only museum of its kind, on Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Weather Pioneer Day was created by The John C. Freeman Weather Museum to pay tribute to historical weather pioneers and meteorologists and inform the public of the rich and varied weather history of Harris and Galveston Counties.
Attention will be focused on the work of the first weather pioneers in the region and the challenges they faced in recording their data. This exhibition is devoted to them and their life’s work.

The free day-long celebration will include admission to the museum and kid-friendly activities the whole family can enjoy.
The John C. Freeman Weather Museum would like to acknowledge its partnership with the Houston Arts Alliance to expand the museum’s community weather awareness programs.

The John C. Freeman Weather Museum, located at 5104 Caroline in the Museum District, opened its doors in April of 2006 to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. Founded and operated by meteorologists, the Weather Museum is a project of Weather Research Center, a Houston, Texas based non-profit educational and research organization, whose goal is to reach as many people as possible and educate them about weather and weather safety.

For more information, visit or call 713-529-3076.

Have a great day everyone!
