NWS Advises Valley Residents to Stay Prepared During Hurricane Season
BROWNSVILLE - Two cold fronts are moving into the Valley the second week of October.
National Weather Service Coordination Meteorologist Barry Goldsmith says the first cold front of the season could end hurricane season or stir up storms.
Goldsmith recalled Hurricane Alicia from 1983, "we had (hurricane) Alicia which was an old front and weakened dissipated in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia. The remaining moisture made it into the west central gulf and the next thing you know you have a category three storm moving into Houston, Galveston area"
He recommends Valley residents should stay prepared throughout hurricane season, which ends November 30th.
