So...over the course of this Harvey ordeal, I've heard two things that I am unsure about.
1) A lot of people here on Storm2k have been saying dry air intrusion can increase the lightning in hurricanes. Is this true? I have only heard increases in lightning being tied to intensification.
2) A Scientific American article says that Houston's location at a latitude where prevailing winds change (I assume from the trade winds to the westerlies) made it more vulnerable to storms like Harvey. Is that true, and if so, why?
Thanks for humoring me.

I know I can't straddle the atmosphere...just a tiny storm in your teacup, girl.
