The City of Kemah Emergency Management continues to monitor the possible weather developments making their way towards our region. As we continue to track these developments, now is a good time to review your significant weather event preparedness plans.
In addition to our Emergency Preparedness document for a quick overview of what you will need to be aware of during events like this, we also highly recommend visiting www.GCOEM.org to download the Galveston County Emergency and Disaster Guide. It is filled with tips and information to help you prepare.
The City of Kemah urges you to please stay abreast of weather developments by following local weather news reports for Galveston County. And observing communications from the US National Weather Service Houston-Galveston Texas for the latest information.
The National Weather Service has produced the following information:
We have a quick update to share regarding the potential for winter weather across our northwestern zones today and tonight.
- Temperatures should continue to cool behind yesterday's cold frontal passage, with some locations northwest of the Houston Metro (see graphic) reaching freezing today and remaining near or below freezing overnight.
- As scattered showers continue to impact the area during this period, there is a slight chance that these locations will see brief periods of freezing rain.
- Despite this, icing impacts should be minor. Ice may accumulate on windshields, trees, and elevated surfaces but there should be limited, if any impacts to travel. Greater impacts will occur to the north and west of our area.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact the National Weather Service office at the phone numbers listed in the Resources section above.
