Tropical Storm Beryl is moving across the Gulf of Mexico on a path for the Texas coast.

Tropical Storm Beryl path: How will it impact Texas and Houston?

Get ready to "hunker down." The National Hurricane Center track hasn't changed much – it is still pointed in the general area of Corpus Christi – but the path is a weird one. Since it's moving up the coastline, any small movement left or right will make a big impact on landfall.

The bottom line is that the NHC still shows it hitting early Monday as a Category 1 hurricane, but we should be alert for a couple of things, especially a sudden strengthening right before landfall. Definitely hope that doesn't happen, but it's possible.


If you live on the coast or on Galveston or Matagorda Bay, be aware that the water level/storm surge could rise up to five feet. Winds will be highly dependent on the exact landfall location and any last minute category changes.

Everyone in most of the FOX 26 area is under a Flood Watch because of the expected 5-10 inches of rainfall with isolated spots getting 12-15 inches.

Be ready if the power goes out and make sure to have food, water, medicine, pet food, and other essentials just in case. It is better to be over-prepared than under-prepared.

Sunday should still be relatively quiet, so finish those last-minute preparations and settle in for a stormy Monday.

The FOX 26 Weather Team is closely monitoring developments. They will continue to keep you up-to-date online, on-air, on social media and on FOX Local.
