Did you know the phrase “April rains bring May flowers”? Since spring is already here, I wanted to see what this means for Texas.
They are here! Wildflowers are growing around Texas, and severe to severe hurricanes are recurring in some parts of the state. Hello, Spring in Texas!
This made me think of the phrase “April Shows bring May flowers”. Since wildflowers are already here, does this phrase have any meaning for Lon Star State?
First, I got some wildflower insights from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Wildflower Forecast for 2022. Andrea Delong-Amaya, the center’s director of fruits and vegetables, said this year’s show is expected to be average this fall and winter.
Accordingly, the spring wildflowers in Texas are actually based on spring and winter rains.
Of course, we know that rain helps many things to grow and grow. Due to the lack of rain, or the current worsening drought in Texas, there may be more stress on wildflowers, and their flowering may not be as bright.
So it looks like spring and winter rains bring spring flowers to the Lunar Star realm. Any April rain will be beneficial, and it will give the wildflowers a little extra energy, and they will not be so anxious.
April rains are not equal in the state.
Since this phrase focuses on the April rains, I have observed the rainy weather in our Texas cities. Not all of Texas will receive important rainfall this year.
Although April brings heavy rains and hurricanes to some, others experience heavy monthly rains in early summer and early autumn.
Beaumont, the winner of April’s highest rainfall, is 3.93. “Low? El Paso, at 0.17”
Brownsville and Laredo averaged 1.50 inches this month, while Austin, San Antonio and Corpus Christie received more than 2 inches of rain.
Dallas / Fort Worth should take an average of 3.22’s.
El Paso’s rainy months are July, August, and September, with heavy rainfall.
For South Texas, the rainy months are usually May, June, and September. The effect of rainfall here? During a hurricane. For southeast Texas, as well as for the rainy months of the year, the June, July, August, and September are tropical.
The highest rainfall of the year for Central and South Central Texas occurs in May, June, September, and October.
For Dallas / Fort Worth, May and October are usually the rainy months of the year.
My thoughts on the April rain
With the worsening drought situation in the region, we can now collect as much rain as possible.
Lanina conditions are expected to continue through the winter, which means that drier and hotter conditions may continue.
Without the required amount of rainfall, it will affect our soil moisture and ultimately our temperature. It can be a very hot summer if we do not see more rain in early summer.
