LCRA Meteorologist Bob Rose's summer outlook

Bob Rose provides an outlook for this summer:

"With El Niño strengthening over the next few months, the atmosphere should eventually respond, bringing more frequent periods of rain and thunderstorms, beginning sometime in the late summer or fall. Until then, I expect near normal to slightly below normal rainfall across Central Texas this summer. Overall, I don’t expect the same dry pattern we saw last summer, but I also don’t expect a clear end to the drought. Historically, summer periods of transition between La Niña and El Niño have produced patterns of near normal rainfall. Summer’s temperature will average warmer than normal..."
