Storm path tracker shows Hurricane Beryl taking aim at six US states
Quick Glance: Beryl Tracker: Projected Path, Models Towards Texas
  • Beryl, previously classified as a hurricane and now categorized as a tropical storm, is anticipated to regain hurricane strength before reaching the south Texas coast late Sunday or early Monday, as per the National Hurricane Center.

  • Currently moving west-northwest, the storm is predicted to shift towards north-northwest by Sunday night and then northward by Monday. Beryl's center is forecasted to approach the Texas coast by Sunday and make landfall on Monday.

  • A hurricane warning has been issued for the Texas coast extending from Baffin Bay - north of Padre Island - to Sargent, located southwest of Galveston, Texas.

  • Forecasters predict that Beryl will likely bring heavy rainfall of 5 to 10 inches - with localized amounts of up to 15 inches in certain areas - to the Texas Gulf Coast and eastern Texas, potentially leading to localized flooding.
