Public Information Statement

Statement as of 4:03 PM CDT on August 01, 2014


... July 2014 ended slightly cooler and drier than normal...

A sum of the average temperature departures across southeast Texas
shows that the month of July ended up slightly cooler than normal.
Convective rainfall events brought a mix of drier and wetter than
normal conditions... although only four of the climate sites received
wetter than normal rainfall.

One unusual fact for the year through July 31st is that none of the
four first-order climate sites have yet to hit the 100 degree mark.
How odd is this? For the 30-year period of 1981 to 2010... College
Station normally reaches 100 degrees by July 21st with the average
number of 100-degree days being 5.7 days through July 31st. The city
of Houston normally experiences a 100 degree date by July 24th... with
the average being 1.8 through July 31st.

Even though below normal rainfall was recorded at most of the climate
sites... heavier rainfall fell over College Station... Huntsville...
Intercontinental Airport... and League City. The average rainfall
departures for these sites ranged from +0.53 to +4.58 inches. Driest
conditions were experienced along the coastal areas... especially
between Sugar Land and Palacios. Overall rainfall amounts were enough
to ease most of southeast Texas out of drought. However... the July
31st drought monitor reported abnormally dry conditions across
Burleson... northern Austin... western Colorado... most of Jackson... and
most of Matagorda counties. Moderate drought conditions were reported
near Matagorda Bay across far southern Jackson and western Matagorda
counties.

The following is a list of some high and low extremes recorded at
the first- and second-order climate sites. Note some of these are
the last date of occurrence for each site. See The Table following
this list for more details.
