ABC 13 shows how these strong winds took this trampoline airborne into the street in a Pearland neighborhood. The storm woke me up on Saturday. Saturday storms: ⛈These are some pictures from Pearland around 3:30 a.m. You can see how strong the winds are blowing. Elita Loresca, Metelogist from ABC13 said the squall line produced wind gusts up to 60 mph.

@Stealth83 : We love watching the storms too unless it gets too bad that we have to go back inside because of the strong wind gusts or heavy rain coming on our porch.

@Magnolia832 : Take a look at this news from a Chief Meteorologist that was posted today. 😳
 
Does an early start to hurricane season mean anything?
Tropical Storm Arthur said hello over the weekend, starting our hurricane season -- once again -- before the official June 1 date. In fact, the last six seasons have had something tropical stir up before the official start. I like data, and so I looked at this century, 2000-2020, and came up with 11 of those 21 years showing early tropical formations: 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2015-2020. So there are two obvious questions:
 
Does an early start mean we'll have a shorter season?
 
Apparently not.
 
In 2003, we had an April system show up and the season didn't end that year until December 11th. In 2007, we started 5/9 and ended 12/14, but in 2012 we started on May 19th and ended October 29th.
 
Most of these early starts have seasonable ends like any other year -- some a little early and some a little late (official end is Nov. 30). FYI, for Texas, we've never been hit by a tropical storm or hurricane later than October 15/16 (Jerry in 1989), so our season usually quiets down in early October when the winds off the Rockies finally kick in our first cold fronts.
 
Does an early start mean we'll have more hurricanes?
 
Again, not necessarily.
 
In 2005, the Katrina/Rita year, we had 31 tropical depressions, 28 storms and seven hurricanes (five of them Category 5). And that year didn't start until June 8. Of course, it didn't end until January! In 2009, with an early start of May 28, we had only nine storms and three hurricanes. Busy years are more about warm water and light winds than start dates.
 
What can we learn from an early start?
 
Other than it's time to prepare, not really. I averaged out the past 20 years and we've been seeing 17 tropical depressions, 15 of those becoming tropical storms and seven becoming hurricanes (3-4 major). And if you look at the various forecasts coming out this year, that is generally what is being predicted -- above average.
 
No matter that it has already started.

@Stealth83 : You wouldn't have been outside listening to that one. I was awake and there was one blast of wind that only lasted 30 seconds. I thought there is damage. All our furniture was at the other side of our garden 😳

I woke up to the wind, thankfully the storm literally blew through faster than expected. My parents in Dickinson said they had 7 inches of rain and flooded streets
