With Galveston located on the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston weather can be influenced by the Gulf weather, which sometimes means hurricanes or tropical storms.
Of course, there aren’t always storms in the Gulf, and many don’t come near Galveston, but it is good to be aware of the expected weather during your vacation…
