Now at 8 Triple Digit Highs - 07/10/13

Our hot, dry weather rolls on!  We hit triple digits again at Camp Mabry for the 8th time this year and will likely do so again Thursday through Saturday.  Although it will be hot, it looks like records should hold, but we could come close!  As for rain, we'll be hard-pressed to find any for the next several days.  I've actually lowered the chances of rain Sunday and Monday from 20% to 10%, but I'm holding on to 20% chances Tuesday and Wednesday.  For comparison's could be worse!  On July 10th, 1913 (100 years ago) - it hit 134 in Death Valley, California!  That's the hottest temp recorded on Earth.

We'll be hot, but not quite record hot the next few days.
Camp Mabry Forecast Thursday: 102 (Record is 108 in 1917)
Camp Mabry Forecast Friday: 104 (Record is 107 in 1954)
Camp Mabry Forecast Saturday: 103 (Record is 105 in 2009)

Lakes Travis and Buchanan combined are just 36% full and continuing to fall.  Lake Travis is 42.9 feet below average and Lake Buchanan is 25.1 feet below average.  What would it take to end our drought?  It's estimated 12 to 14" of rain would need to fall - and that rain would need to fall in the right spots (as in upstream or over the lakes!).  With the lack of recent rain and triple digit heat, evaporation on the lakes is occurring at a quick pace.

Tropical Storm Chantal weakened considerably in the last 24 hours and disintegrated into a Tropical Wave Wednesday afternoon.  For the latest: Track here:

Overnight: 76 Mainly clear, warm & muggy.  Winds: S 5-10
Thursday: 102 Early patchy clouds, then mostly sunny.  Winds: SW/S 5-10
Thursday Night: 76 Mainly clear.  Winds: S 5-10
Friday: 104 Mostly sunny and hotter.  Winds: SW/SE 5-10

Stay cool!
