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 possible in the hurricane watch area along the Gulf coast of northeastern Mexico and Texas by early Monday, with tropical storm conditions beginning Sunday night.
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 San Luis Pass Texas 3 to 5 feet
    • Corpus Christi Bay 3 to 5 feet
    • Matagorda Bay 3 to 5 feet
    • Mouth of the Rio GrandeTexasto Baffin Bay, Texas 2 to 4 feet
    • San Luis Pass Texas to High Island, Texas 2 to 4 feet
    • Galveston Bay 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.
RAINFALL:  
  • 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 midweek.
  • This rainfall is likely to produce areas of flash and urban flooding, some of which may be locally considerable in nature.
  • 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 the Yucatan Peninsula.
  • The swells are expected to reach eastern Mexico and much of the Gulf Coast of the U.S. shortly.
  • These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
  • Please consult products from your local weather office.
