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:

  • Tropical storm conditions are occurring over portions of the northern Yucatan Peninsula and should spread westward along the Gulf coast of the peninsula for the next several hours.
  • Hurricane conditions are possible in the hurricane watch area along the western Gulf coast by late Sunday, and tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area on Sunday.

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
    • Baffin Bay Texas to Sargent Texas 3 to 5 feet
    • Corpus Christi Bay 3 to 5 feet
    • Matagorda Bay 3 to 5 feet
    • Mouth of the Rio Grande Texas to Baffin Bay Texas 2 to 4 feet

 

  • 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.

  • Storm surge could raise water levels by as much as 1 to 3 feet above ground level in areas of onshore winds along the west and north coasts of the Yucatan Peninsula in the tropical storm warning area.
  • Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

RAINFALL:

  • Through today Beryl is expected to produce rainfall totals of 4 to 6 inches, with localized amounts of 10 inches, across the Yucatan Peninsula, with scattered instances of flash flooding anticipated.
  • Heavy rainfall of 5 to 10 inches with localized amounts of 15 inches is expected across portions of the Texas Gulf Coast and eastern Texas beginning late Sunday through the middle of next week.
  • This rainfall is expected to produce areas of flash and urban flooding.
  • 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
    hurricanes.gov/graphics_at2.shtml?rainqpf and the Flash Flood Risk graphic at hurricanes.gov/graphics_at2.shtml?ero

SURF:

  • Large swells generated by Beryl are currently impacting portions of the coast of Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and the Yucatan Peninsula.
  • The swells are expected to reach eastern Mexico and much of the Gulf Coast of the U.S. by late today.
  • These swells are expected to cause life threatening surf and rip current conditions.
  • Please consult products from your local weather office.
