What is a cold front exactly

We just experienced a cold front and we are already seeing those cooler temps. But what is a cold front exactly? Is it just strong cold air coming and and cooling us down?

Perfect weather for a fire hazard

A Red Flag Warning is not very common for our area. These warnings are usually issued closer toward summer when the heat is high and the humidity is low. This warning is often times asscoiated with wildfires.

Something to Celebrate: Warmer Weather

Spring Break on the Island never disappoints!  And even if you're not on the beach in a bikini, it will feel good to warm up to the upper 70s on Friday.  Friday will bring partly cloudy skies with warmer winds, from the SE at 10-3

Chilly Morning; Beautiful Afternoon

Spring Breakers might want to sleep in Thursday morning (as though I need to tell them that) because low temperatures will start out in the mid to upper 40s.

The Great Wall of Kansas?

Like I mentioned before, the class I am currently taking talks about Natural Disasters. We talked last time about Tornadoes in the Valley, and how we've had a few pass through here a few decades ago.

Quiet Hurricane Season for 2014

Hurricanes are another deadly Natural Disaster we cannot shield ourselves from. It also happens to be another topic discussed in my Natural Disaster class.

The effects of changing the time one hour ahead

I am certainly feeling the effects of sleeping one hour less today. I couldn't fully accept the idea I was losing one hour of sleep this morning.

Weeding out your garden

I hate Saturday's only because it's the one day a week that my mother makes my two siblings and I go outside and clean the front yard.

Many Changes this Weekend: Time & Weather

First, the easy change.  Turn your clocks ahead one hour when you go to bed Saturday night.  The time changes early Sunday morning.

Why do we have Daylight Saving Time?

Many of us cringe when we think we are going to lose an hour of our valuable weekend by “springing forward” this Sunday. I personally do not like losing an hour, but I do enjoy the extra daylight.

Spring Breakers, This is Why You Came to SPI!

Grab the camera, take some photos, and prove to everyone back home that the RGV does indeed have... SUNSHINE!!!

Next Chance for Rain: Sunday.

The Valley can always use some rainfall, even if it is a cold, dreary rain.  Brownsville received 0.27 inches on Tuesday, bringing the official total to 1.03 inches for the year.  Brownsville's normal rainfall for the year-to-date

Those Clouds Lock in the Cold!

Ah, what a winter it has been!  Tuesday will be yet another cold, cloudy, rainy, foggy day!  One area of improvement will be the winds.  The NE winds will range from 5-20 mph.

How to stay safe in Cold weather

Today, I took part in the 5k run for the Race for the Cure event. Not only is race for a good cause, but it also helps me stay in shape. But today as a cool front swept through the region, we ran in the chilly weather.

Hottest day ever recorded in Brownsville is...

Today was a very warm day to start off the month of March. Highs in the upper 70's and some areas saw highs in the 80's.
