Summer will creep back in very quickly this week after a dry and mild March and April. Official rainfall numbers for March through April are in and they are running as follows:
Houston Bush Airport March - April Rainfall 4.69" Normal 6.96" Deficit -2.27"
Houston Hobby March - April Rainfall 3.10" Normal 6.65" Deficit -3.55"
Galveston March - April Rainfall 5.32" Normal 5.32" Deficit -2.97"
This week should be hot and dry with only a minor upper weather disturbance bringing a few showers just North of Houston late Monday night. More hot ninety degree temperatures return until Wednesday for most of the upper gulf coast. You may have to run your water sprinkler for your garden this week based on the low likely hood for rain through the weekend.
