Good News—Tropical Storm Warning Pushes Out Air Quality Alert

A tropical storm warning in Houston has apparently pushed out the air quality alert from earlier in the day. The National Weather Service forecast for Houston no longer makes mention of the bad air. Though it does make ample mention of the prospect of big rain and possibly some wind.

The storm is named Edouard.

Here is the forecast for Houston for the next couple of days—

Monday: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny and hot, with a high near 99. Heat index values as high as 104. North wind 5 to 10 mph becoming east.

Monday Night: Tropical storm conditions possible. A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 77. East wind 5 to 10 mph increasing to between 15 and 20 mph. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.

Tuesday: Tropical storm conditions possible. Showers and thunderstorms likely. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 90. Heat index values as high as 101. East wind 40 to 50 mph becoming east 15 to 20 mph. Winds could gust as high as 70 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

None of this bothers me so much as long as people don’t get hurt. But I’m aberrant in a lot of ways. You see from that forecast why normal people elsewhere in the country sometimes see Houston as a kind of hell.

  1. No opinion about the fact that Edouard has three vowels in his name — like you?

    (His indeed are consecutive.)
