Summer cool down on the way – for everyone but Texas

HOUSTON, TX – Here’s one for you: what do President Obama and the polar vortex have in common? Neither one wants to travel to the Texas/Mexico border. According to the National Weather Service, another polar vortex, like the one that froze half the country back in January, is expected to make its way into the U.S. But just like President Obama, don’t expect it to do much for folks here in the Lone Star state.

“It’s probably not going to impact our weather much at all,” says Jill Hasling of Houston’s Weather Center. “I think it will mainly be east of us and north of us, so we won’t get the cooler temperatures.”

Turns out, Typhoon Neoguri, which creamed Japan, isn’t shaping up to be such a bad thing for us here in the U.S. The tropical system will cause a dip in the jet stream next week sending arctic air as far south as Missouri and dropping overnight temps into the 40s. But still leaving us high and dry.

Proving once again that even on a weather map, Texas is still a red state.
