Thunderstorms Forecasted Labor Day Weekend; Non-Emergency Offices to Close on the Holiday (9/3)

The National Weather Service forecasts a series of scattered showers and thunderstorms in the southeast region of Texas this weekend. Gusty winds, frequent cloud to ground lightning, and locally heavy rainfall are possible through the weekend with the highest rain chances near the coast.

Much caution is warranted for individuals headed to the beach this weekend and officials ask them to remember: When Thunder Roars, Go Indoors. Learn more about lightning and how to be prepared, by reading these Lightning Safety Tips.

Meteorologists are also monitoring a tropical cyclone development in the Gulf which could enhance rain chances late next week and weekend. The threat to this region remains very low, but officials are closely monitoring as this is the peak of Hurricane Season.

Residents are also encouraged to sign up to receive emergency alerts on www.missouricityready.com or via Twitter.com/MissouriCityEM.
