               ...2010 BEGINS COLD BUT ENDS WARM...

UPDATED FOR FINAL RAINFALL TOTALS FOR CO-OP SITES.

2010 DEFIES GENERALIZATIONS AS THE YEAR WAS BOTH HOT AND COLD AND
WET AND DRY. THE MOST REMARKABLE TRAIT OF 2010 WAS HOW MUNDANE
THE WEATHER WAS...AND COMPARED TO YEARS PAST...2010 WAS RATHER
DULL. THE TROPICAL ATLANTIC WAS VERY ACTIVE WITH 19 NAMED STORMS.
SOUTHEAST TEXAS RECEIVED AN EARLY SCARE FROM ALEX AND A GLANCING
BLOW FROM HERMINE BUT OTHERWISE THE TROPICS WERE NOT MUCH OF A
THREAT LOCALLY. THE AREA DID NOT SUFFER A TORNADO OUTBREAK OR EVEN
A SIGNIFICANT MULTI-DAY THUNDERSTORM EVENT. SOUTHEAST TEXAS
STRUGGLED THROUGH UNSEASONABLY WARM TEMPERATURES DURING SUMMER...
UNSEASONABLY COLD TEMPERATURES IN WINTER AND A DROUGHT BUT THESE
LONG TERM EVENTS LACK THE DRAMA AND EXCITEMENT THAT WICKED
THUNDERSTORMS OR A HURRICANE CAN PRODUCE. OVER THE LAST DECADE...
SOUTHEAST TEXAS ENDURED TROPICAL STORM ALLISON...THE WARMEST
TEMPERATURES EVER RECORDED...CHRISTMAS SNOW AND HURRICANE IKE.
AND IN 2010...WELL NOT SO MUCH. SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO...HERE IS
A RECAP OF 2010.

THE YEAR STARTED OUT EXTREMELY COLD WITH AVERAGE TEMPERATURES 4 TO
8 DEGREES COLDER THAN NORMAL DURING JANUARY... FEBRUARY AND MARCH.
THERE WERE SEVERAL EPISODES OF SNOW OVER THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE
REGION DURING JANUARY AND FEBRUARY. MONTHLY RAINFALL TOTALS WERE
BELOW MONTHLY AVERAGES FOR NINE OF THE 12 MONTHS. YEARLY RAINFALL
IS WELL BELOW NORMAL AREA WIDE AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS IS IN THE MIDST
OF A RATHER SIGNIFICANT DROUGHT. MUCH OF THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE
SOUTHEAST TEXAS IS NOW IN EXTREME DROUGHT AS CLASSIFIED BY THE
U.S. DROUGHT MONITOR. DROUGHT CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST
OR PERHAPS INTENSIFY THROUGH EARLY 2011. HEAVY RAIN DURING THE
FIRST HALF OF THE SUMMER HELPED KEEP ANNUAL RAINFALL DEFICITS FROM
GROWING LARGER. THE HOUSTON AREA RECEIVED OVER 12 INCHES OF RAIN
DURING EARLY JULY WHICH WAS OVER 30 PERCENT OF THE YEARLY RAINFALL
TOTAL. COLLEGE STATION RECEIVED OVER SEVEN INCHES OF RAIN IN JUNE
AND THIS WAS OVER 25 PERCENT OF THE 2010 TOTAL. OVERNIGHT LOW
TEMPERATURES DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS WERE VERY WARM. THESE VALUES
HELPED PUSH AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURES TO VERY WARM VALUES.
AUGUST 2010 WAS THE WARMEST MONTH EVER RECORDED AT EACH OF THE
PRIMARY CLIMATE SITES. THE YEARLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WILL NOT SET
ANY RECORDS AS THE EARLY COLD SPELL WAS BALANCED OUT BY THE WARM
SUMMER. TAKE A COLD WINTER AND A WARM SUMMER AND THE RESULT IS A
VALUE NEAR NORMAL WITH THE WEATHER BEING ANYTHING BUT NORMAL.
RAINFALL FOR 2010 ENDED WELL BELOW NORMAL WITH COMMUNITIES NORTH
OF HIGHWAY 105 SUFFERING FROM EXTREME DROUGHT CONDITIONS. COLLEGE
STATION HAD IT`S 10TH DRIEST YEAR SINCE 1902.
