WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:

None.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for...
* The Texas coast from the mouth of the Rio Grande River northward
to San Luis Pass

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for...
* The Texas coast south of Baffin Bay to the mouth of the Rio
Grande River
* The northeastern coast of mainland Mexico from Barra el
Mezquital to the mouth of the Rio Grande River

A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for...
* The Texas coast from the mouth of the Rio Grande River northward
to High Island

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible
within the watch area. A watch is typically issued 48 hours
before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force
winds, conditions that make outside preparations difficult or
dangerous.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are
expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-
threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the
coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours.
For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather
Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at
hurricanes.gov.

Interests elsewhere in northeastern Mexico and the Texas coast
should closely monitor the progress of Beryl. A Hurricane Warning
will likely be issued for a portion of the Texas coast this
afternoon.

For storm information specific to your area in the United States,
including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office. For storm information specific to your area outside of the
United States, please monitor products issued by your national
meteorological service.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was
located near latitude 23.6 North, longitude 92.7 West. Beryl is
moving toward the west-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). A turn to
the northwest is expected later today, followed by a turn toward the
north-northwest by Sunday night. On the forecast track, the center
of Beryl is expected to approach the Texas coast by late Sunday into
Monday morning.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
that maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is expected today. However,
strengthening is expected to begin tonight or on Sunday, and Beryl
is forecast to become a hurricane before it reaches the Texas coast.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 997 mb (29.44 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Beryl can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT2, WMO header WTNT42 KNHC,
and on the NHC website at hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT2.shtml.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible in the hurricane watch area
in Texas by early Monday, with tropical storm conditions beginning
Sunday night.

Tropical storm conditions are expected in the tropical storm
warning area in Texas and northeastern Mexico late Sunday or
Sunday night.

STORM SURGE: The combination of storm surge and tide will cause
normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters
moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the
following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if
the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Baffin Bay, TX to San Luis Pass, TX...3-5 ft
Corpus Christi Bay...3-5 ft
Matagorda Bay...3-5 ft
Mouth of the Rio Grande, TX to Baffin Bay, TX...2-4 ft
San Luis Pass, TX to High Island, TX...2-4 ft
Galveston Bay...2-4 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
the right of the center, where the surge will be accompanied by
large and destructive waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the
relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary
greatly over short distances. For information specific to your
area, please see products issued by your local National Weather
Service forecast office.

For a complete depiction of areas at risk of storm surge inundation,
please see the National Weather Service Peak Storm Surge Graphic,
available at hurricanes.gov/graphics_at2.shtml?peakSurge.

RAINFALL: Heavy rainfall of 5 to 10 inches with localized amounts
of 15 inches is expected across portions of the Texas Gulf Coast and
eastern Texas beginning late Sunday through the middle of next week.
This rainfall will likely produce areas of flash and urban
flooding, some of which may be locally considerable. Minor to
isolated moderate river flooding is also possible.

For a complete depiction of forecast rainfall and flash flooding
associated with Tropical Storm Beryl, please see the National
Weather Service Storm Total Rainfall Graphic, available at
hurricanes.gov/graphics_at2.shtml?rainqpf and the Flash Flood Risk
graphic at hurricanes.gov/graphics_at2.shtml?ero

SURF: Large swells generated by Beryl are expected to reach
eastern Mexico and much of the Gulf Coast of the U.S. today.
These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather
office.
