The Beryl missile will head to the southern tip of Texas, at the western end of the Gulf, on Monday

Hurricane Beryl, which made landfall near Tulum, Mexico, is expected to weaken to a tropical storm today as it crosses the Yucatan Peninsula. However, Beryl could re-strengthen over the Gulf of Mexico before making its final landfall Sunday or Monday in northeastern Mexico or the Texas coast. Total rainfall associated with Beryl could reach 4 to 8 inches or more in and around southern Texas.

Meanwhile, cold fronts moving across the central and eastern U.S. will keep conditions unsettled and rainy from the Plains to the East Coast. Some of the heaviest rainfall, locally 1 to 3 inches or more, could fall across the Southeast, as well as parts of the central Plains, upper Midwest and Northeast.

In contrast, the West will be dry and scorching, with highs of 100 degrees everywhere except in coastal and high-elevation areas. Temperatures will frequently exceed 120 degrees in low-lying areas of the desert Southwest.
