Central Texas can get pretty rainy in the spring, and I've always wondered why it often seems to rain in the middle of the night. It's like the weather is designed to keep me from getting sleep.
So, I asked meteorologist Burton Fitzsimmons if he could explain things.
“Think about the hot, dry desert air that’s out there in West Texas, and here we have this very muggy, warm air [in Austin],” Fitzsimmons said. “Well, the dividing line between those two air masses is like a little front.”
