Lounging near the Gulf of Mexico, Beaumont boasts some of the biggest weather in Texas. The city is located in the Piney Woods region, which receives more rainfall than any other region in the Lone Star State. Thanks to warm gulf waters carrying humid air to the Beaumont area, we'll typically see more than 48 inches of rain in our area each year.
During the winter, warm currents from the Gulf of Mexico keep Beaumont's weather pleasant. Snow is rare; but, sometimes we do see a light dusting in December. In fact, on December 11, 2008, the city was covered in a light snow with up to three inches in the west end! It was the first "major" snow in Beaumont since December 24, 2004.
Beaumont has been known to see a few hurricanes as well. If you're looking for evacuation information, please click here for the latest evacuation routes and closure information.
