    Dale's Hurricane Guide

    After living and forecasting weather in the Coastal Bend for thirty five years now, there is one dominant theme in every hurricane season that I have been a part of since 1981. Nearly all of the storms that have made a direct hit here were weak and did little to no damage, while the ones that were destructive hurricanes hit elsewhere on the Texas coast and had little to no impact on us.

    Dry upper level high pressure is now back on top of South Texas and will result in our mainly dry and baking hot conditions continuing. The tropics are active but nothing that poses a threat to our area at this time nor is it likely to be a problem. Harvey is way south in the eastern Caribbean while 92L remains in the Atlantic.
