Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Friday, September 8, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A gradual increase in moisture will result in a chance of showers and thunderstorms over the next couple of days. The radar is showing some showers already, and while the air mass is on the dry side, meaning the main threat is more gusty winds, lightning and light precipitation. Should see a little bit of a decrease on Monday and Tuesday, but a return of the activity by the middle of next week.

There is a low chance of thunderstorms from Noon to 8 pm.

On this date in 1900, a category four hurricane struck Galveston, TX, killing 6,000 to 12,000 people. The hurricane occurred before the practice of assigning official code names to tropical storms was instituted, and thus it is commonly referred to under a variety of descriptive names. Typical names for the storm include the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, the Great Galveston Hurricane, and, especially in older documents, the Galveston Flood. It is often referred to by Galveston locals as the Great Storm or the 1900 Storm.
