Gov. Perry is urging Texans to prepare their families and homes for the 2014 Hurricane Season, which begins June 1 and runs through the end of November.

“Texas has a great track record when it comes to being prepared for natural disasters, and that readiness starts with our citizens,” Gov. Perry said. “I urge every Texan to get ready for hurricane season by taking a few common-sense measures to prepare their families for whatever Mother Nature might throw their way this year.”

To help Texans be safe in the event of a major storm, the governor is strongly encouraging families to develop an emergency plan that designates a place to go in case of evacuations, and compile a readiness kit of important supplies, including medication, non-perishable food items and water. Texans living in coastal areas who will require transportation assistance during an evacuation are urged to call 2-1-1 as soon as possible to sign up with the Transportation Assistance Registry, which allows local and state officials to better coordinate transportation needs once a disaster occurs.

For more information on how to prepare for a hurricane and tips on how to build a kit, please visit the Hurricane Storm Center.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS. .

DAY ONE…TODAY AND TONIGHT SEA FOG…SOME DENSE…MAY DEVELOP NEAR THE BAYS AND COASTAL WATERS. ANY FOG THAT DEVELOPS COULD LINGER ACROSS THE AREA UNTIL A STRONG COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE AREA ON FRIDAY. .

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY THERE WILL BE A GOOD CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PASSAGE OF A STRONG COLD FRONT ON FRIDAY. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES FOR STRONG NORTH WINDS AND ROUGH SEAS ARE LIKELY BEHIND THE FRONT WITH WINDS SPEEDS APPROACHING GALE.

RAIN WILL REMAIN IN THE FORECAST THROUGH SATURDAY WITH MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE AREA. BETTER RAIN CHANCES COME BACK TO THE FORECAST SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY AS THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS THE AREA.

ANOTHER ROUND OF STRONG WINDS AND ROUGH SEAS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THIS STORM. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ON THE COLD SIDE THROUGH MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.

 


This is just a heads up highlighting the potential for heavy rainfall Wednesday night into Thursday. A lot of the details are still uncertain at this time but right now looks like areas north of I-10 will have the greatest threat for heavy rainfall. Attached are briefing slides in PDF.

Please let us know if you have any questions/concerns. We hope to update this tomorrow into Wednesday if it looks like a higher probability.
