Feb. 20 17

West Houston, TX, during the early afternoon.
Northwest Houston, TX, during the mid-afternoon.
Northwest Houston, TX, during the late afternoon.

Summary: The day was mostly cloudy, wet, and cool. A  big line of showers and thunderstorms started to pass over the Houston, TX area at around 5 am and continued on through the early night. Light to really heavy rain started to pass over my house in northwest Houston, TX and my dads store in west Houston, TX, at around 5 am and stopped, sometime during the evening. I saw one cloud to ground lighting strike on my way to my dads store in west Houston, TX, during the early afternoon. There looked to be some strong gusty winds (20 to 30 mph, with maybe some around 40+) at my  house in northwest Houston, TX, sometime during the early morning. There was a flash flood watch issued for the Houston, TX area from 3 am to 4 pm. I don't know of any other watches, warnings, or advisories issued for the Houston, TX area. The rain created some large puddles and full ditches, but I didn't see, or hear about any flash flooding. It felt cool to little cool during most of the day. The low temps were in the 50's and the high temps were in the 60's, in the Houston, TX area. The wind speeds varied from calm to moderately strong, during the morning, afternoon, evening, and maybe night, in northwest and west Houston, TX. The wind speeds looked to be calm in northwest Houston, TX, during the night.

Thoughts: Well Houston, TX got a lot of rain as expected. I thought it might flood, but that didn't look to have happened. There wasn't as much loud thunder and lightning as I thought there would be. I only heard mostly distant rumbles.
