Projected path, real-time tracking, and impact in North Texas

Beryl is now a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico, but is expected to re-intensify and become a hurricane before hitting the Texas coast.

As of Saturday morning, Beryl continues to churn in the warm Gulf waters with 60 mph winds.

That warm water will serve as fuel and the storm will likely regain hurricane strength Saturday night and Sunday morning.

When will Beryl make landfall?

The latest computer models show the storm making landfall east of Corpus Christi sometime between Monday morning and afternoon.

The National Hurricane Center’s cone of uncertainty is 100 miles wide, so continue to check our forecast as we learn more about the storm’s path.

The storm is expected to make landfall as a very strong Category 1 or possibly Category 2 storm near the coast.

Hurricane watches have been issued for many areas along the Texas coast.

Storm surge warnings have been issued from the Rio Grande Valley to the Galveston area.

Parts of Texas along the coast could see storm surge of 2 to 5 feet.

Then there’s the rain. Areas east of Corpus Christi could see up to a foot of rain.

There will also be winds between 50 and 70 miles per hour.

Will Beryl make it to North Texas?

It’s important for North Texans to pay close attention to the forecast because the storm’s track will determine how much rain we expect to see, if any.

The storm’s central track will take Beryl north and east once it makes landfall.

Right now, most of the rain is located east and southeast of the DFW metro area, but it looks like North Texas could get some rain from the remnants of Beryl.

We have a 40 to 50 percent chance of rain for Monday and Tuesday in North Texas.

The chances will be greater the further east or southeast you go.

That’s a lot of water in a short period of time, so it could even raise some flooding concerns in East Texas.

From Dallas, Fort Worth and westward, we’ll be able to handle it just fine.
