Tropical Storm Beta moving to the Texas coast with possible rain of up to 15 inches

The storm should land on Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

The Tropical Storm Beta has winds of 60 mph this morning and is approximately 205 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas moving west-northwest at 3 miles / hour late to the Texas coast.

The latest Beta forecast shows that the storm is moving towards Texas on Monday, with the storm making it possible to fall sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning as a tropical storm.

After landing, the storm will begin to turn slowly northeast and continue along the Texas Gulf Coast until Wednesday and finally in the Mississippi Valley by Friday.

This morning, the radar shows outside heavy rainfall areas that reach areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and even the shores of the Gulf of Florida.

There are Tropical Storm, Warnings and Flash Flood Watchs for parts of Texas and Louisiana.

High-resolution computer models indicate that the official landing of a slow-moving Tropical Storm Beta is likely to come late Monday or early Tuesday somewhere between Houston and Corpus Christi, probably near or north of the greater Victoria, Texas area.

The high-resolution forecast models are also consistent with the fact that they do not show much Beta once on land with almost no movement in the 24 hour period between Tuesday morning and Wednesday morning. This will allow continued rain to hit parts of Texas, especially on the east side of the storm.

During this time frame, there could be an increase of storm locally up to 4 feet.

The rainfall forecast has dropped a bit this morning, keeping the heaviest rainfall overall a little lower and a little more defined. However, there is a good chance of local rainfall over 10 inches near the Galveston area, as well as heavy rainfall of 6 to 10 inches along the Texas coast in southern Louisiana, and still possibly parts of northern Louisiana. Heavy rains are likely to cause flooding in the area, and the urban area near Houston will be of particular concern.

Elsewhere, Hurricane Teddy is a Category 3 hurricane with winds of 115 miles per hour and is approximately 340 miles southeast of Bermuda.

Teddy is expected to move northwest at 12 mph as a tropical storm warning remains in effect as Teddy is expected to move east of the island late Sunday and Monday.

Teddy will then go to the North Atlantic, perhaps grazing parts of extreme southeastern Canada. The main impact in the northeastern US will be the tough surf.

There is a small low pressure system just off the East Coast of Florida and this area is very unlikely to acquire tropical characteristics in the next five days.

Tropical Storm Wilfred will continue to struggle with further development and may disappear as soon as possible today. If it does not disintegrate later today, it will certainly do so in the coming days, long before it affects the earth.

The Post Tropical Cyclone Paulette south of the Azores could regain some tropical features in the next day or two.
