The Statesman has an interesting article on why it seems that thunderstorms heading into Austin always seem to break up when they hit town. It either has to do with the drop in elevation, the illusion of radar, the life-cycle of thunderstorms or just the general unwillingness of god almighty to smite us too much. (I may have made that last one up).

Personally, I never put much stock in the weather radar on TV. I pretty much go by the point at which the dogs in my house start freaking the hell out which is usually about 10 minutes before a storm hits. They're never wrong.
