STORM SURGE:

  • The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the 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.

Sargent Texas to Sabine Pass Texas 2-4 ft
Galveston Bay 2-4 ft
Mouth of the Rio Grande River Texas to Sargent Texas 1-3 ft
Sabine Pass Texas to Vermilion/Cameron Parish Line Louisiana 1-3 ft

  • 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_at1.shtml?peakSurge.
  • Storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 1 to 3 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate coast of northeastern Mexico in areas of onshore winds.
    Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

WIND:

  • Gusty winds are possible in portions of southern Texas and northern Mexico through this evening.

SURF:

  • Swells generated by Alberto will affect the coast of Texas and northeastern Mexico through Friday.
  • These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
  • Please consult products from your local weather office.
