NWS Brownsville To Scare Up a Stew of Weather Information

Join the thousands of ghosts, goblins, witches, pirates, and vampires who enjoy a couple of nights at the Gladys Porter Zoo in Brownsville, and learn a little about how the National Weather Service in Brownsville serves the Lower Rio Grande Valley, on Saturday night, October 30th, and Halloween Night (Sunday, October 31st).

We'll have plenty of information for kids of all ages, and plenty of candy, too! We even do temporary tattoos. And, who knows; we've been known to spin a few haunting weather tales. You'll find us near the Gorilla (map below, zoo exhibit 41). Just look for the blue National Weather Service tablecloth, and a host of friendly staff, and have some fun with us!
