Montgomery County Emergency Management: Prepare for a Stormy 4th of July
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- If you are planning any 4th of July celebrations be sure to make preparations for potential heavy rainfall. The National Weather Service is predicting rain to begin this evening, but Montgomery County will see excessive rainfall tomorrow.
Coupled with these thunderstorms expect rainfall amounts in the 1-3 inch range likely, with isolated amounts in excess of 4-5 inches possible, frequent lightening and gusty winds between 30-40mph possible. This weather pattern should end Wednesday evening.
At this time flooding is not a concern, but if the system stalls or trains across the same area excessively, street flooding might occur. Use caution when driving especially in areas prone to flooding.
The Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and its partners will continue to monitor and update on any changes.
