Beaumont, Texas

Late night forecast! Sorry for the delay in posting today. Life gets in the way sometimes. No more delays, let’s get to it!

At 1053PM, CT, Beaumont was reporting a temperature of 77 degrees with clear skies. Dew points are in the 70s, and flow is mostly on shore. There is bound to be some fog overnight and into tomorrow morning, however this has been a fairly persistent pattern, and most of the lower visibilities have been found inland in the morning, where temperatures aren’t buoyed by the Gulf.
Churning instability will continue over the Gulf of Mexico, with the majority of the associated rainfall lingering over Louisiana and points eastward. Still, with persistent instability and troughing through the Plains, some shower activity will be drawn into Beaumont tomorrow evening. Guidance is turning towards the development of a tropical storm in the Bay of Campeche. This will help the shower activity over the Gulf form more into a feeder band that will become more compact and well organized. While it’s unfortunate that the tropical season may be getting underway, the silver lining is that Beaumont will clear out and be quite pleasant on Wednesday.

Satellite looks active in the eastern Gulf, but not so bad closer to Beaumont.

Anniston, Alabama to Beaumont, Texas

On the road again, through Alabama, Louisiana and a small bit of Texas. It’s a drive that will take just shy of 10 hours and cover 643 miles. That will allow us a pace of about 65 miles. Compared to our last few trips, this is nothin! Let’s hit the road.

After an extremely rainy weekend, the southeast will relish the weather we drive through tomorrow. After some morning fog along the Gulf coast, we can expect things to clear out nicely, giving us now problems as we head to the southwest. A system moving through the northern Plains will tap into the Gulf for moisture, adding to a stream of clouds when we get west of Lafayette, Louisiana. The models are hinting at light rain, but it’s likely just picking up on low clouds. We will see these clouds for only the last couple of hours, from Lafayette to Beaumont. Not bad at all.

Too close for comfort

Showers and storms definitely got a lot closer than expected yesterday in Beaumont. They welled up as far west as the Louisiana/Texas border, which was considerably further than the Lafayette area I had thought. Still, there was no rain in Beaumont, to the delight of temperatures, which I assume enjoy being as warm as possible. It climbed to 96 each of the past two days thanks to the sun in Beaumont. This gave Accuweather, the best forecast that kept it dry, the top spot in northeastern Texas.
Actuals: Monday – High 96, Low 75
Tuesday – High 96, Low 71

Beaumont, Texas to Cleveland, Tennessee

We are looking at a nice little 4th of July Road Trip. Well, 5th and 6th of July, if we are being honest with ourselves. It will take a day and a half to cover 760 miles. The route we take will allow us to cover ground at a pace of 65.1mph, giving us 521 miles under our belt after the first day. Also, we get see America. So that’s nice.


Leaving Beaumont tomorrow morning, it will be hot and humid. Driving through southern Louisiana, it will be hot and humid. Then, as we make out way through Mississippi and eventually into Alabama, it will be hot and humid. All this heat and humidity will eventually lead to some day time thunderstorms essentially from Lafayette, Louisiana to Tuscaloosa, the destination for day one. The heaviest rain and thunderstorm activity, at this time, appears like it will be just off to the northwest of our route, but I wouldn’t put ay stock in that. There are going to be storms everywhere.

As I said, the day would end (and the next would begin) in Tuscaloosa, site of one of a few devastating tornadoes that rocked the country this Spring. Take the time to appreciate the hard work residents of Tuscaloosa are putting in to get back on their feet.
The drive from Tuscaloosa to Cleveland will be similar to the one from Beaumont to Tuscaloosa, though with out the prolonged period of assured dry weather, as we had from Beaumont to Lafayette. The drive will be done in the early afternoon, so at the very least, it’s possible that thunderstorm coverage won’t be widespread by the time we arrive in Cleveland to polish off our trek.

Beaumont, Texas

It’s a late night forecast again, and we are likely to end up talking about more heat and humidity,

At 1153PM, CT, Beaumont was reporting sunny skies with a temperature of 80 degrees. A stationary front lies across the Ohio Valley and is splitting the nation into two distinct regions, one a dryer region while Beaumont was quite obviously in the moister region, with dew points in the low 70s. Flow off the Gulf wasn’t terribly strong, so dense fog is not expected in the morning.
The pattern will mostly become generally unstable, but without any real trigger. Flow off the Gulf, Atlantic and Caribbean will cause the Southeast to be active starting on Tuesday when the stationary front breaks down with day time convection, but Beaumont is expected to remain steamy and dry.
Tomorrow – Partly cloudy and stuffy, High 93, Low 75
Tuesday – Sunny, still warm, High 92, Low 74

TWC: Tomorrow -Sun and clouds mixed with a slight chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon High 96, Low 77
Tuesday – Day Generally sunny despite a few afternoon clouds. A stray afternoon thunderstorm is possible, High 95, Low 74

AW: Tomorrow – Times of clouds and sun High 96, Low 73
Tuesday – Partly sunny High 92, Low 73

NWS: Tomorrow – A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Mostly sunny High 95, Low 76
Tuesday – A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Mostly sunny High 94, Low 76

WB: Tomorrow – Partly cloudy. A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon High 94, Low 76
Tuesday – Partly cloudy in the morning…then mostly sunny with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon High 93, Low 75

Ah yes, just as I said. Steamy. Satellite, as you can see, is boring, but vividly colored.

Atlanta, Georgia to Beaumont, Texas

Back to back road trips, today’s taking us across the Gulf Coast states. Like yesterday’s trip, this will take us a day and change as we cover 707 miles at 65.1mph. The first day we will cover most of the trip, about 521 miles, leaving the rest for a short drive Wednesday morning. Shall we be on our way?


We are departing Atlanta at a time that is for once quiet. It has been a stormy few days in the Southeast, and that’s going to eventually continue, even as we drive southwest. Expect sunny increasingly warm and humid weather as we head towards Montgomery, but the chance for showers won’t really develop until after we are through the Alabama capital. The best chance for thunderstorms, however, will wait until we are right up by the coast. Chances are best, then, as we make our way from Slidell to our day one destination, Baton Rouge.

The showers and thunderstorms aren’t going to be the standard sea breeze southern Louisiana thunderstorms, but are going to be associated with anther developing low which will touch off organized, strong thunderstorms across the Gulf Coast over night. They will still be going strong when we awake and depart from Baton Rouge. We should encounter the back edge of the heavy weather as we pass Lafayette, but don’t be surprised if there is still a bit of drizzle and probably some fog the rest of the way into Beaumont.

Naples, Florida to Beaumont, Texas

Today’s journey will wrap us around the Gulf Coast for a couple of days. It’s a 1054 mile drive, and we will be able to net 533 miles on the first day thanks to a rapid pace of 66mph. Making good time, having a good time. Or something.


An area of low pressure is developing over the center of the country, and doing so rapidly. Our first day will take place entirely in Florida, and it’s a matter of timing for when that cold front comes crashing into the Florida Peninsula. I say we will see some passing clouds, maybe an occasional area of showers until Ocala, when we are due for the initial wave of heavy thunderstorms. We stand the chance of seeing some heavy weather until at least Live Oak, maybe even all the way to Tallahassee. In Florida, these strong thunderstorms are typically windy systems with occasional small tornadoes, so be on the lookout for that, and keep your hands on the wheel. The day will end in Caryville, which is in the Panhandle.

After the heavy weather on our first day in the car, it’s going to be a rather pleasant drive on Monday. Behind a cold front, we’ll have a west-northwest flow that will cut the stifling heat that one might expect along the Gulf Coast. Even the humidity will be down somewhat as we arrive in sunny, beautiful Beaumont.
