Caribbean Disturbance

Just a quick update this evening to tell you that I am continuing to watch the disturbed area in the Caribbean. In a couple days the environment it is in will be more favorable for development. In the meantime, it is a rainmaker. Run to run, models are very inconsistent. But today's model runs all show it turning after entering the Gulf and veering toward the north central Gulf or northeastern Gulf.

In the Pacific, Hurricane Celia winds are down to 90...a slight increase and then decrease in strength anticipated by hurricane center over the next 5 days...with no threat to land. Further to east, Tropical Depression 5E has formed.

Houston highs have been in the upper 90s for several days...not quite records but very close and feeling like 105 due to the humidity. Wednesday and Thursday, look for some scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly in the afternoon to cool things off.

Moderate risk for severe storms on Wednesday for the southern Great Lakes. And slight risk for a larger area around that.

Let's do summer or verano, pronounced vair-RAH-noh. It's official...we're in verano.

Stimulate young minds over the summer break...order my award winning DVDs, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco. They are on the shelf (in the education section) at Barnes & Noble stores or you can order them from http://www.frankandpaco.com, http://www.amazon.com, http://www.bn.com, http://www.bestbuy.com, or http://www.ebay.com/. Our ESL (English as a Second Language) version can be found at http://www.frankypaco.com.

Summer has arrived...according to the US Naval Observatory, it arrived at 5:28 am yesterday (June 21st). And the Houston area has been sweltering, our family in Iowa has had many days of mild weather so far.

Stay cool!
