There is increasing evidence that large coastal cities, like Houston, Texas, can influence weather through complex urban land use– weather–climate feedbacks. Recent work in the literature establishes the existence of enhanced lightning activity over and downwind of Houston. Since lightning is a signature of convection in the atmosphere, it would seem reasonable that urbanized Houston would also impact the distribution of rainfall. This paper presents results using data from the world’s first… CONTINUE READING
