From Texas Standard:
Weather experts have a way with words – like 'polar vortex' and 'superstorm' – and now, 'Godzilla' El Niño. Of course, forecasting is an imperfect science, but if predictions hold, Texas could soon see some serious rainfall.
For now, most of the state has been pretty dry so it may be the perfect time to make a few repairs and plans in preparation for potential downpours.
