            ...2011 WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR RECORD
                  HEAT AND INTENSE DROUGHT...

         ...HOUSTON RECORDS ITS SECOND WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD...

2011 HAS COME TO IT`S MERCIFUL CONCLUSION AND THE PAST YEAR WAS ONE
FOR THE RECORD BOOKS. THERE WERE SEVERAL INTERESTING WEATHER STORIES
THROUGH THE YEAR BUT THERE WAS ONE WEATHER TOPIC WHICH TRULY
DESERVES TOP BILLING AND THAT WAS THE DROUGHT. THE DROUGHT WAS
PARTICULARLY INTENSE DURING FEBRUARY...MARCH...APRIL AND MAY WITH A
BRIEF RESPITE IN JUNE AND JULY AND A REINTENSIFICATION OF DROUGHT
CONDITIONS IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER. RAIN RETURNED IN OCTOBER...
NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER WHICH SKEWED THE ANNUAL TOTALS A BIT. MOST
LOCATIONS IN SOUTHEAST TEXAS ENDURED ONE OF THE FIVE DRIEST YEARS ON
RECORD.

THE DROUGHT PRODUCED SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC IMPACTS. ECONOMIC LOSSES
ARE EXPECTED TO EXCEED $5.2 BILLION DOLLARS STATEWIDE. THIS FIGURE
INCLUDES LOSSES TO LIVESTOCK INCLUDING SUPPLEMENTAL COSTS SUCH AS
BUYING HAY AND OTHER FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH LOST GRAZING. THIS
FIGURE DOES INCLUDE LOSSES TO FRUIT AND VEGETABLE PRODUCERS...
NURSERY CROPS AND OTHER ROW CROPS. THERE ARE OTHER COSTS AS WELL
SUCH AS THE REMOVAL OF DEAD TREES...REPLACING INFRASTRUCTURE
DESTROYED BY WILDFIRES AND OTHER LOSSES SUSTAINED BY HOME AND
PROPERTY OWNERS.

SPEAKING OF THE DROUGHT...HERE ARE A FEW OF THE MORE MEMORABLE
RECORDS.

THE CITY OF HOUSTON WENT 257 CONSECUTIVE DAYS BETWEEN 1.00 INCH RAIN
EVENTS. HOUSTON DID NOT RECEIVE 24 HOUR RAINFALL AMOUNTS GREATER
THAN AN INCH BETWEEN JANUARY 25TH 2011 AND OCTOBER 8TH 2011. THE
PREVIOUS RECORD WAS 192 DAYS ENDING ON MARCH 21 1918. HOUSTON ALSO
WENT 99 CONSECUTIVE DAYS BETWEEN 0.25 INCH RAIN EVENTS (ENDED JUNE
21ST 2011) AND 148 CONSECUTIVE DAYS BETWEEN 0.50 INCH RAIN EVENTS
(ENDED JUNE 21ST 2011). HOUSTON HOBBY AIRPORT ON SOUTHEAST SIDE WENT
58 CONSECUTIVE DAYS BETWEEN MEASURABLE RAIN EVENTS. THERE WAS NO
MEASURABLE RAIN BETWEEN BETWEEN MARCH 14TH AND MAY 11TH. GALVESTON
ALSO ESTABLISHED A NEW RECORD AS THE ISLAND CITY WENT 108
CONSECUTIVE DAYS BETWEEN 0.25 RAIN EVENTS (ENDING ON JUNE 21ST 2011).
THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS 102 DAYS IN 2008. IT WAS THE DRIEST APRIL ON
RECORD FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON AND COLLEGE STATION AND THE THIRD
DRIEST APRIL FOR GALVESTON. IT WAS ALSO THE SECOND DRIEST AUGUST ON
RECORD FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON AND THE THIRD DRIEST FOR GALVESTON.
IT IS NO WONDER THAT THE ANNUAL RAINFALL TOTALS WERE SO MEAGER. IT
WAS THE THIRD DRIEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON...THE
THIRD DRIEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR COLLEGE STATION AND THE FIFTH DRIEST
YEAR ON RECORD FOR GALVESTON. HOUSTON HOBBY AIRPORT ENDURED IT`S
DRIEST YEAR ON RECORD.  MOST LOCATIONS WERE BETWEEN 20 AND 30 INCHES
BELOW NORMAL FOR THE YEAR. THAT`S RIGHT...BETWEEN 20 AND 30 INCHES!!!
THE REGION WAS ABOUT 5 TO 10 INCHES DRIER THAN NORMAL IN 2010 SO
THIS PROLONGED DROUGHT HAS PRODUCED RAINFALL DEFICITS BETWEEN 35 AND
45 INCHES SINCE THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER 2010.

HERE ARE THE FIVE DRIEST YEARS FOR THE FIRST ORDER CLIMATE SITES:

         CITY OF      HOUSTON      CITY OF      COLLEGE
         HOUSTON      HOBBY        GALVESTON    STATION

2011 DEP     -25.20       -29.24       -27.81       -20.09

2011 WILL ALSO BE REMEMBERED FOR INTENSE HEAT. WHO REMEMBERS AUGUST?
DAY AFTER DAY OF INTENSE HEAT WITH AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES
EXCEEDING 100 DEGREES ALMOST EVERY DAY. THERE WERE SO MANY RECORD
HIGH TEMPERATURES DURING THE SUMMER INCLUDING THE EARLIEST 100
DEGREE DAY OCCURRENCE...THE WARMEST JUNE TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED
AND THE NUMBER OF 100 DEGREE DAYS OF A YEAR. 2011 ENDED AS THE
WARMEST OR SECOND WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR MOST LOCATIONS ACROSS
SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

THERE WERE SO MANY TEMPERATURE RECORDS SO LET`S TRY AND DO THE YEAR
JUSTICE AND REVIEW A FEW OF THE MORE NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS. THE
EARLIEST 100 DEGREE DAY WAS ESTABLISHED IN HOUSTON WHEN THE MERCURY
HIT 100 DEGREES ON JUNE 2ND. THE TEMPERATURE CLIMBED TO 105 DEGREES
A FEW DAYS LATER (JUNE 5TH/6TH) WHICH IS NOW THE WARMEST EVER JUNE
TEMPERATURE. GALVESTON RECORDED IT`S EARLIEST 99 DEGREE DAY ON JUNE
5TH. JULY WAS RELATIVELY COOL COMPARED TO THE RECORD HEAT IN JUNE
AND THE SUPER RECORD HEAT THAT WAS ABOUT TO COME IN AUGUST. AUGUST
WAS JUST BRUTAL. 30 OUT OF THE 31 DAYS BREACHED 100 DEGREES. THE
AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 102.0 DEGREES IN HOUSTON
AND AN EVEN MORE BLISTERING 103.8 DEGREES IN COLLEGE STATION.
HOUSTON TIED ITS ALL TIME HOTTEST TEMPERATURE ON AUGUST 27TH WHEN
THE TEMPERATURE CLIMBED TO 109 DEGREES. ALL TOLD THE MERCURY CLIMBED
TO 100 DEGREES OR ABOVE 46 TIMES THIS YEAR WHICH PRETTY MUCH
OBLITERATES THE OLD RECORD OF 32 DAYS IN 1980. COLLEGE STATION HAD
69 DAYS WITH TEMPERATURES REACHING THE 100 DEGREE THRESHOLD IN 2011
AND THIS ALSO CRUSHES ITS PREVIOUS RECORD FOR 100 DEGREE DAYS OF 58
DAYS IN 1917. THERE WERE 108 DAYS DURING THE YEAR IN WHICH THE
TEMPERATURE BREACHED 95 DEGREES AND 142 DAYS OR ROUGHLY 39 PERCENT
OF THE YEAR WITH TEMPERATURES AT 90 DEGREES OR ABOVE.

2011 WAS ONE OF THE WARMEST YEARS ON RECORD ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS.
ALTHOUGH THIS DATA IS PRELIMINARY...IT APPEARS THAT 2011 WILL END AS
THE WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR HOUSTON HOBBY AIRPORT AND FOR THE
CITY OF COLLEGE STATION. THE CITY OF HOUSTON (BUSH INTERCONTINENTAL
AIRPORT) WILL END 2011 AS THE SECOND WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD NEATLY
SQUEEZED BETWEEN 1962 (WARMEST) AND 1933 (NOW 3RD WARMEST). 2011
WILL END AS THE WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR HOUSTON HOBBY AIRPORT AND
FOR THE CITY OF COLLEGE STATION. THE CITY OF GALVESTON ALSO RECORDED
IT`S SECOND WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD TRAILING 2006 AS THE WARMEST YEAR.

HERE ARE THE FIVE WARMEST YEARS ON RECORD FOR EACH OF THE FIRST
ORDER CLIMATE SITES:

THE ANNUAL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE IS CALCULATED BY DETERMINING THE
AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL MONTH...ADDING THE
12 MONTHS AND THEN DIVIDE THAT SUM BY 12 . VALUES ARE ROUNDED TO THE
NEAREST TENTH OF A DEGREE.

THE SIX MONTH PERIOD FROM MARCH 1ST THROUGH AUGUST 31ST WAS THE
WARMEST PERIOD ON RECORD FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS. THE VALUES WERE NOT
EVEN REMOTELY CLOSE. IF NOT FOR A RELATIVELY COOL JANUARY AND
DECEMBER...2011 WOULD HAVE EASILY BEEN THE WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD
FOR ALL OF OUR AREA CLIMATE SITES. IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO FORGET
THE SUMMER OF 2011 WITH DAY AFTER DAY OF UNRELENTING HEAT. IF YOU
THOUGHT IT WAS HOT...WELL...IT WAS!!! BELOW ARE THE HALF YEAR VALUES
FOR THE PERIOD OF MARCH THROUGH AUGUST:

LET`S TAKE A LOOK BACK AT 2011 AND START AT THE BEGINNING OF THE
YEAR. HERE IS A BRIEF NARRATIVE SUMMARY FOR EACH MONTH FOLLOWED BY
THE TEMPERATURE AND RAINFALL DATA FOR EACH OF THE FIRST AND SECOND
ORDER CLIMATE SITES:

                              JANUARY

JANUARY WAS A BIT COOLER THAN WHAT IS TYPICALLY EXPECTED. THE MONTH
ALSO WAS A BIT WETTER THAN WHAT IS TYPICALLY EXPECTED DURING A
STRONG LA NINA EPISODE. A NEGATIVE ATLANTIC OSCILLATION KEPT THINGS
ACTIVE WITH A SERIES OF COLD FRONTS MOVING THROUGH THE REGION. THESE
FRONTS BROUGHT EPISODES OF COOLER WEATHER AND SCATTERED SHOWERS.

THE FIRST HALF OF FEBRUARY WAS THE COLDEST ON RECORD FOR SOUTHEAST
TEXAS AND THE SECOND HALF OF THE MONTH WAS ONE OF THE WARMEST ON
RECORD. OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPERATURES FELL BELOW FREEZING DURING THE
FIRST 13 MORNINGS OF THE MONTH. THE MERCURY REACHED OR EXCEEDED 80
DEGREE FOUR TIMES DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE MONTH. THE AVERAGE
MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS WITHIN A HALF A DEGREE OF NORMAL YET THE
MONTH WAS ABOUT AS FAR FROM NORMAL AS ONE WOULD GET. FEBRUARY WAS
ALSO VERY DRY WITH RAINFALL TOTALS LESS THAN AN INCH AREA WIDE. THIS
WAS THE FIRST OF MANY MONTHS WITH BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL.
ACCUMULATING SNOW FELL ON THE 4TH OVER THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE
REGION. STRONG STORMS ON THE 1ST AND AGAIN ON THE 27TH PRODUCED SOME
WIND DAMAGE IN POLK COUNTY.

DRY MONTH AS LA NINA CONDITIONS PREVAILED. RAINFALL TOTALS WERE AGAIN
GENERALLY UNDER AN INCH WITH SOME HEAVIER TOTALS CLOSER TO THE COAST.

APRIL 2011 WAS ONE OF THE WARMEST ON RECORD. COLLEGE STATION
RECORDED IT`S WARMEST APRIL ON RECORD AND THE CITIES OF HOUSTON AND
GALVESTON EACH RECORDED THEIR THIRD WARMEST APRIL ON RECORD.
GALVESTON RECORDED IT`S WARMEST APRIL TEMPERATURE EVER WHEN THE
MERCURY CLIMBED TO 95 DEGREES ON THE 27TH. RAINFALL DURING THE MONTH
WAS SPARSE. THE CITIES OF HOUSTON AND COLLEGE STATION EACH RECORDED
THEIR DRIEST APRIL ON RECORD. THE THREE MONTH AGGREGATE RAINFALL WAS
ALSO THE DRIEST ON RECORD FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON AND THE SECOND
DRIEST FOR COLLEGE STATION. A FEW THUNDERSTORMS CLIPPED THE EASTERN
PART OF THE REGION TOWARD THE END OF THE MONTH AND THESE STORMS
BROUGHT SOME RELIEF FROM THE DROUGHT BUT ALSO BROUGHT LARGE HAIL AND
DAMAGING WINDS TO HOUSTON...TRINITY AND POLK COUNTIES.

TEMPERATURES WERE 1 TO 2 DEGREES WARMER THAN NORMAL. RAINFALL WAS
AGAIN BELOW NORMAL WITH THE HEAVIER TOTALS OVER THE NORTH AND
NORTHEAST HALF OF THE REGION. THERE WERE SOME STRONG STORMS DURING
THE MONTH. A LINE OF SEVERE STORMS ON THE 12TH BROUGHT LARGE HAIL
AND DAMAGING WINDS TO PARTS OF BRAZOS...WASHINGTON AND COLORADO
COUNTIES. 2 TO 3 INCH DIAMETER HAIL WAS REPORTED NEAR SHERIDAN AND

RAINFALL TOTALS BELOW AN INCH FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON. WEATHER
RECORDS DATE BACK TO 1889 AND HOUSTON HAD NEVER RECORDED FOUR
CONSECUTIVE MONTHS WITH LESS THAN AN INCH OF RAIN. IT WAS THE DRIEST
FOUR MONTH PERIOD IN CITY OF HOUSTON HISTORY.

JUNE 2011 WAS THE WARMEST ON RECORD FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON AND THE
CITY OF GALVESTON AND THE SECOND WARMEST ON RECORD FOR COLLEGE
STATION. A COUPLE OF SIGNIFICANT RECORDS FELL DURING THE MONTH
INCLUDING THE EARLIEST 100 DEGREE DAY AT HOUSTON (NOW JUNE 2ND) AND
THE WARMEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED IN JUNE (NOW 105). GALVESTON
REACHED 99 DEGREES ON THE 5TH AND THIS WAS THE EARLIEST 99 DEGREE
