Cold Front Arrives in Montgomery County for Halloween
Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
The wind shift associated with the strong cold front will push across the region this afternoon and into the early evening hours. This wind shift should reach the coast between 2 to 4 PM this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible along the leading edge of the front. This should be the first round of precipitation, with the main hazards being gusty winds, frequent lightning, and localized heavy downpours.
A second round of precipitation should develop and push across Southeast Texas this evening into the early evening hours. This round of precipitation will bring additional rainfall in the way of locally heavy downpours. The system should be fast moving, and therefore not anticipating any flash flooding concerns. However, with the recent rains and previously saturated soils; citizens should be alert for the possibility of trees falling as the system moves through our area. Strong northerly winds are expected in this systems wake which will cause chilly conditions. Temperatures are expected to bottom out in the 30s to mid-40s, with wind chills in the mid-20s to 30s, on Thursday and Friday mornings.
The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will continue to monitor the upcoming weather situation and send updates as conditions change.
