A new cold front has entered the Gulf of Mexico. It is now south of Brownsville Tx and does not show there because it is a dry line at this point. The string of clouds to the south of the front is not a front but high cloud in the upper air that is the southern boundary of the jet stream. At the moment, I do not see any significant rainfall as a result of this cold front which is not good news for farmers.
