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 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:

Bottom Line

Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 PM Tuesday for the northwest counties of Southeast Texas (in/around the Brazos Valley area). High temperatures are expected to be in a 100-105 degree range with heat index values generally in a 106-112 range.

Continue to practice heat safety. LOOK before you LOCK!


Well above normal temperatures can be expected across the northwest portions of Southeast Texas today and Tuesday.  A majority of the area is expected to see peak heat index values greater than 108 degrees, so a Heat Advisory is in effect.  All heat safety precautions should continue to be taken.  Hot temperatures and high heat index values are expected to expand southward on Tuesday and persist through much of the remainder of the week. The Heat Advisory will likely be expanded southward to include all of Southeast Texas on Tuesday, and it is possible that an Excessive Heat Warning might be needed in/around the Brazos Valley area for high temperatures close to 105 degrees.  With little change in the forecast, advisories/warnings might be needed again on Wednesday and Thursday.




Extreme Heat Messaging

With extreme heat in the forecast, the NWS will use the following messaging:

-Limit any time outdoors, especially during the afternoon

-Check your backseat for any pets or children

-Check in with your neighbors, especially the elderly

-Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated

-Wear sunscreen and light clothing


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.
