Tropical Storm Beryl Expected To Make Landfall In Texas As Hurricane

Tropical Storm Beryl is reportedly expected to intensify into a life-threatening hurricane before making landfall on the coast of Texas early Monday (July 8), according to the National Hurricane Center via NBC News.

Beryl had previously reached Category 4 hurricane levels when it barraged regions of the Caribbean island nations Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines before weakening to a Category 2 prior to making landfall in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico on Friday (July 5). The tropical storm is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane later Sunday (July 7) and continue intensifying overnight before making landfall as a Category 1 hurricane Monday morning.

“Beryl to make landfall along the mid-to-upper TX coast Monday AM as Cat 1 hurricane. Tropical storm wind gusts this afternoon, w/hurricane winds tonight. Dangerous rip currents & heavy rain up to (4-8″) & isolated higher amts,” the National Weather Service’s Corpus Christi branch wrote in an update shared on its X account Sunday morning.

Beryl is forecast to bring a “life-threatening” storm surge up to 6 feet, which includes “damaging hurricane-force winds” extending along the coast from Padre Island National Seashore to Sabine Pass. Flash flooding is also possible in the middle and northern Texas coast, as well as the inland eastern part of the state through Monday night.
