What to expect when Beryl moves through Texas

CENTRAL TEXAS – Hurricane Beryl made landfall in Matagorda County, Texas early this morning as a Category 1 storm. As it moves across Southeast Texas, impacts will be felt in parts of Central Texas and the Brazos Valley.

THE BREAKDOWN:

  • A TROPICAL STORM WARNING is in effect for the Brazos Valley
  • A FLOOD WARNING is in effect for counties east of I-35.
  • Impacts to the Brazos Valley: Rainfall up to 6 inches+, especially east of Highway 6, sustained winds of 40-50 mph until noon, power outages possible.
  • Impacts on Central Texas: Intermittent rain during the day, sustained winds of 20-30 mph, isolated flooding.

This morning, Beryl made landfall southeast of Houston near Sargent, Texas. It will continue to move north and northeast, bringing the eye over areas east of Bryan-College Station. The closer you are to the eye, the greater the impact. Only a few temporary bands of rain are expected along the I-35 corridor, which could cause flooding on the roads as well as winds up to 30 mph. Meanwhile, there is a chance of rain amounts over 4 inches near the Brazos Valley and possibly as much as 6 inches along the I-45 corridor. Wind will also be a concern. Sustained winds will be 40-50 mph near the center of circulation, with gusts potentially reaching 60 mph. Power outages will be possible, especially east of Highway 6. Travel in the Brazos Valley, East Texas and the Houston metropolitan area is discouraged today.
Things will calm down as Beryl’s circulation moves northeast toward East Texas. Scattered showers are possible on Tuesday, but summery weather is expected again, with highs in the high 90s to near 100 degrees by next week.

I wish you a nice Monday and stay healthy!
