There seems to be something brewing out in the Gulf at the moment. Before everyone does a little rain dance for Texas consider a few things...
251 counties out of 254 are in drought conditions. Some dangerously severe. During the recent fires in Palo Pinto county it was reported the soil moisture in the area was at 1%.
Consider everything North and West of the red line is mostly rocky terrain. This is an over simplication of the Texas geology of course but follow my line of thought.
With a great deal of Texas soils in a dehydrated condition, throw in rocky and/or steep topography, rainfall can result in flooding conditions quickly. We all saw what happened to Vermont recently.
We appreciate your prayers for rainfall -- just throw in the caveat that we would like a slow, soaking rain.
Hope the weather is wonderful for you wherever you are.
