Yep. Late Summer through early Winter of 2016 was freakishly wet. I got there well after the big sustained rains that produced the torrent in your pic. I wish Id seen that.

For some reason I was under the impression that the rainy season was July/August. It looks like June has gotten its fair share of rain. Obviously theres no way of knowing what it will be like later, but do yall think this is likely to be a long rainy season or is this typically when it starts?

Reason for asking is my dad and I are planning a trip the last week of July making water our number one concern. Im hoping its not coming earlier meaning a drier July/August.

 There is variation from year to year, but the climatology data suggests the rainy season commences in  June and doesn't end until October.

So far pretty much right on the average rainfall for the year.

According to one of our local weather dudes:

Quote
The weekend will be a bit cooler as some kind of Pacific tropical system appears likely to send some moisture into Texas.

Sounds like good news of possible rain this weekend!  :great:
