In response to another question about the Texas weather in Central and East Texas:
The temperatures in August in Central and East Texas will be like July, and continue into the 1st week of September. But, slowly, the 2nd week of Sept., we’ll see temperatures start inching downward. Around the 10th to the 15th of September, we’ll see real temperature change and from the 15th, we’ll have steady temperature drop with more clouds than we’ve seen this summer. The temps will continue to become cooler as more clouds build up going through to the end of September into October.
We’ll have small amounts of sprinkling in September in some few spots in Texas, but going into October, we’ll have a gradual increase in raining. October will actually have rain. Those of you with rain collection systems, be ready starting in the 2nd half of September for a little, then for a lot from the October rains.
The rains will continue into November – around the 7th when I see what I think is a cold spell coming in around the 8th. Nov. will be less rain than October with temperatures continuing to slowly creep southward on into December. I see a milder cold December. I think December’s rain will be spotty.
January and February will drop into the 20’s in Central Texas and into the upper teens in East Texas. In East Texas, it can be considered a normal winter. But, during this time, be ready for communication technology problems. This goes for landlines and satelites both. Consider having a backup where if one of your ways of staying connected is lost, another one can be relied on. Satellites will have problems during this time period.
