Pleasant Weather Forecast/Next Rain/New Museum in Sugar Land

Fall officially began this afternoon. And in Houston, a nice cold front arrived to usher it in.

Hurricane season doesn't officially end until November 30th. But, it is nice and quiet in the Atlantic. New tropical depression has popped up in the Pacific and is forecast by NHC to become a weak tropical storm as it moves west. Should weaken before it becomes and issue for any land area.

Some parts of the country including the Rio Grande Valley have a threat for flooding this evening due to rain. Weather ahead of a cold front (and even behind it) is rainy. On Wednesday, there will be showers and thunderstorms mainly over the eastern US. Mid-level low over central US will kick out to east in a couple days bringing another band of rain through Texas. It will be chilly over the Rockies...Denver vicinity with some locations not breaking 50. Meanwhile it will be hot over the western mountain ranges with highs in the 90s. Elsewheres highs will be in the 70s and 80s.

Houston had some nice soaking rains today. Inside the loop, several locations picked up more than 2 inches of rain (data from the Harris County Office of Emergency Management). Sugar Land area picked up from 6/10 to just over an inch. And, as we began fall this afternoon, there was a pleasant coolness in the air. Look for some pleasant temperatures over the next 2 days. More storms move through Friday evening. There will be a stronger cold front a week from Wednesday.

Let's do museum or museo, pronounces moo-SAY-oh. There is a new museo in Sugar Land. See the AND MORE section for details.

Kids love museums because they love to learn. And they love our award winning Volume 1 DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco. It makes a wonderful birthday or Christmas/holiday gift for the youngsters. And, Volume 2 should be here within days. You can order the your copy from www.frankandpaco.com/, http://www.venturaes.com/, http://www.dololanguages.com/, http://www.carlexonline.com,www.thecuriousmindstore.com/, http://www.amazon.com/, http://www.bestbuy.com/, and http://www.barnesandnoble.com/.

Liza Peiffer sent me this note about a special Awareness Day the first Monday of October.
The United Nations has chosen the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day - a day to stand up and let it be known that affordable, adequate housing should be a priority everywhere. I've put together a blogger press release to help get the message out - there are videos, photos, banners, and even a Flickr photo petition you can use:http://worldhabitatdaynews.com.

In case you haven't heard, the Museum of Natural Science is opening up a location in Sugar Land on October 3rd. Right out of the gate, they will have a special exhibit about the Chronicles of Narnia. Here is a link to a Houston Business Journal article about the new museum site which will be located at University Blvd. and New Territory Blvd. in Telfair.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
