DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was

located near latitude 26.8 North, longitude 95.5 West. Beryl is moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). This general motion is expected to continue through tonight, with a turn toward the north forecast on Monday. On the forecast track, the center of Beryl is expected to make landfall on the middle Texas

coast early Monday. Beryl is forecast to turn northeastward and move farther inland over eastern Texas and Arkansas late Monday and

Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening is expected, and Beryl is forecast to

become a hurricane again tonight. Additional strengthening is expected before Beryl reaches the Texas coast early Monday.


Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center.


The estimated minimum central pressure is 988 mb (29.18 inches)


based on Air Force Reserve dropsonde data.


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND


----------------------


Key messages for Beryl can be found in the Tropical Cyclone


WIND: Hurricane conditions are expected in the hurricane warning

area by early Monday. Winds are first expected to reach tropical

storm strength by late today, making outdoor preparations difficult or dangerous.


Hurricane conditions are possible in the hurricane watch areas by

early Monday, with tropical storm conditions beginning by tonight.


Tropical storm conditions are expected in the tropical storm

warning areas in south Texas starting within the next few hours.


Tropical storm conditions are expected in the tropical storm warning area along the upper Texas coast early Monday.



STORM SURGE: The combination of storm surge and tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...


Port O'Connor, TX to San Luis Pass, TX...4-7 ft


Matagorda Bay...4-7 ft


San Luis Pass, TX to High Island, TX...4-6 ft


Galveston Bay...4-6 ft


Mesquite Bay, TX to Port O'Connor, TX...3-5 ft


High Island, TX to Sabine Pass, TX...3-5 ft


The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the right of the center, where the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary

greatly over short distances. For information specific to your

area, please see products issued by your local National Weather

Service forecast officer


RAINFALL: Heavy rainfall of 5 to 10 inches with localized amounts of 15 inches is expected across portions of the middle and upper

Texas Gulf Coast and eastern Texas through Monday night.


Considerable flash and urban flooding as well as minor to isolated major river flooding is expected.



For a complete depiction of forecast rainfall and flash flooding associated with Tropical Storm Beryl, please see the National Weather Service Storm Total Rainfall Graphic, available and the Flash Flood Risk



TORNADOES: A few tornadoes could occur along the middle and upper Texas Coast through tonight, and across eastern Texas into Louisiana and Arkansas on Monday.



SURF: Swells generated by Beryl are expected to affect eastern

Mexico and much of the Gulf Coast of the U.S. during the next day or two. These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
