There are also some downsides to the weather in Texas. Droughts since the 50s have been a lot shorter, however. A severe drought in 2007 ended abruptly in 2008.Severe storms ramped up in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex this year. Also, 10 twisters have been confirmed by the National Weather Service. Eight were rated EF0, while one near Lake Brownwood was an EF1, as was one near Kenner, Louisiana, the lowest levels on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. According to EFS for Tornado Danger.

The Enhanced F-scale still is a set of wind estimates (not measurements) based on damage. Its uses three-second gusts estimated at the point of damage based on a judgment of 8 levels of damage to the 28 indicators listed below. These estimates vary with height and exposure.

The 3 second gust is not the same wind as in standard surface observations. Standard measurements are taken by weather stations in open exposures, using a directly measured, “one minute mile” speed.

In Nebraska the Weather is rarely above 90°F. According to Weather base the average high temperature is in July and it would be 87.3°F. The overall high temperature of Nebraska is  61.8°F and their average low temperatures 40.3°F
