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:

Bottom Line


A cold front is expected to bring a line of showers and thunderstorms across southeast Texas late Monday night through early Tuesday Morning. The strongest of these storms will carry a potential for damaging winds. A brief tornado or two is less probable, but can't be ruled out as a secondary hazard. The strongest storms are now expected to develop along the front itself, rather than ahead of it.

Overview


A cold front is expected to move across Southeast Texas late tonight through early Tuesday morning.  A line of strong thunderstorms are expected to develop along the front, with the strongest of these storms having the potential to become severe. Damaging winds will be the primary hazard, though the potential for a brief tornado can't be ruled out. 

Though these storms will be capable of producing briefly heavy rainfall, the flooding threat will be mitigated by a recent dry stretch and existing drought conditions in the area.
