Bumpy Weather Potential/Tropical Update/Poll Results/New Poll

Danny is now a tropical depression and losing it's tropical characteristics so this morning's National Hurricane Center advisory was the last one. Meanwhile, watching Invest 94, which is in an area with low wind shear and should be able to develop. Forecast path looks to be northwest...kind of like Danny and Bill's. Will monitor.

In the Pacific, Jimena is now a hurricane and should become a major hurricane over the weekend. No direct impact on land likely...but the path could be parallel to the Baja Peninsula.

A hint of fall this weekend across the midwest and moving into the northeast with a cold front. There will be thunderstorms ahead of it and out over the Rockies. Very hot and humid Texas and southwest with highs in the 90s and 100s. Mild along the west coast and northern states.

Houston, we've had a few rough isolated storms. Look for some action late Saturday into early Sunday...I'm thinking some power outages and some heavy downpours. Cold front is nearby but only areas to northwest will get a break from humidity. Fewer storms this week and high pressure digs in stronger.

Let's do Christmas or Navidad, pronounced nah-vee-DAHD. Are you thinking about Navidad yet...participate in our new poll can order Navidad gifts now and avoid the rush and stress.

With back to school in mind, my friend Leslie Williams, Houston Chronicle writer, sent me the following 2 stories about people and events helping our youngsters get the supplies they need. There is more need than ever this year.
Thanks Leslie for sharing:

Our poll on saving at the grocery store is closed. More than one answer was allowed. 60% siad they used coupons, looks for ads and deals, and looked for deals while shopping. 40% said they buy in bulk. 80% said they purchase generic or store brands. 20% said they don't even grocery shop. And 0% said they buy whatever they want. Thanks to all who participated.

Our new poll is about the upcoming Christmas holidays...apologizing in advance for my Jewish, Hindu, and Muslim friends. I was just thinking this week, when it was August 25th, (and especially with it being so hot and humid) that we are only 4 months from Christmas. So, when do you start shopping/preparing for Christmas. Only one answer is allowed. Thanks to all who participate.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I's hard to find because I'm putting all the tropical stuff and Houston radar is the 6th item down on the right.
