Tropical Storm Beryl will strengthen as it moves toward the Texas-Mexico border this weekend, bringing strong winds, life-threatening storm surge and dangerous flooding to Texas beginning late Sunday. It is expected to be the first storm to cross the US during the 2024 Atlantic season.

Beryl is expected to regain strength before making a landslide: Beryl, now a tropical storm, entered the Gulf of Mexico on Friday night about 900 km from Corpus Christi, Texas. The storm is bringing strong winds, heavy rain and dangerous storm surge to much of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula after battering several Caribbean islands. Beryl is expected to strengthen again before making its final entry into South Texas as a hurricane on Sunday or Monday.

– Cyclone and Storm Surge Monitoring: The Texas coast is under a hurricane watch from the Rio Grande north to San Luis Pass. A storm surge watch is also in effect along the Texas coast from the Rio Grande north to High Island. A hurricane watch is in effect for the northeastern coast of Mexico from Barra El Mesquital to the mouth of the Rio Grande.

– Beryl expected to hit South Texas: Beryl is expected to make landfall on South Padre Island, Texas, near the Texas-Mexico border, as a Category 1 hurricane Sunday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. Texas Lt. Gov. Don Patrick said the state will begin seeing beryl damage from Sunday through Monday. “We're praying and hoping that there won't be any more rain, but even the rain will be very heavy,” Patrick said. “We in the state are preparing for the worst.”
