As expected, VERY gusty winds are blowing into southeast Texas this afternoon in the wake of another underwhelming rain episode. Part of the reason this morning's rains fizzled has to do in part with the large winter storm bringing a a blinding blizzard to the Texas panhandle today. The main energy with this system shifted a bit north, robbing us with the chance to see anything more than a few passing showers this morning. Stronger storms are developing, however to our east into parts of Louisiana and Mississippi.
Our gusty winds will last into early evening, so bundle up if you're headed to the first night of rodeo performances and be prepared for several chilly mornings and cool afternoons for most of the rest of this week.
