DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

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

At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was

located by an Air Force reconnaissance aircraft near latitude 25.5

North, longitude 94.9 West. Beryl is moving toward the northwest

near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this motion should continue through

today. A turn toward the north-northwest is expected tonight, with

a turn toward the north on Monday. On the forecast track, the

center of Beryl is expected to make landfall on the Texas coast

Monday morning.


Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher

gusts. Strengthening is expected, and Beryl is forecast to become a

hurricane again later today or tonight before it reaches the Texas

coast.


Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km)

from the center.


The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 mb (29.29 inches)

based on Air Force dropsonde data.



HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

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

Key messages for Beryl can be found in the Tropical Cyclone

Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT2, WMO header WTNT42 KNHC,

and on the NHC website at hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT2.shtml.


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 Texas and northeastern Mexico by tonight.


Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch

area in Texas by tonight.


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...


Mesquite Bay, TX to San Luis Pass, TX...4-6 ft

Matagorda Bay...4-6 ft

San Luis Pass, TX to High Island, TX...3-5 ft

N Entrance Padre Island NS, TX to Mesquite Bay, TX...3-5 ft

Corpus Christi Bay...3-5 ft

Galveston Bay...3-5 ft

Mouth of the Rio Grande, TX to N Entrance Padre Island NS, TX...2-4

ft

High Island, TX to Sabine Pass, TX...2-4 ft

Sabine Pass, TX to Cameron, LA...1-3 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 office.


For a complete depiction of areas at risk of storm surge inundation,

please see the National Weather Service Peak Storm Surge Graphic,

available at hurricanes.gov/graphics_at2.shtml?peakSurge.


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 beginning today through Monday

night. This rainfall will produce areas of flash and urban flooding,

some of which may be locally considerable. Minor to isolated

moderate river flooding is also 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 at


TORNADOES: A tornado threat will likely develop this evening into

tonight for portions of the middle and upper Texas coast.


SURF: Swells generated by Beryl are expected to affect eastern

Mexico and much of the Gulf Coast of the U.S. during the next few

days. These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surf and

rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local

weather office.
