Tropical Storm Beryl is eyeing Texas. Beryl is moving toward the west-northwest at 13 mph.

The Weather Authority Meteorologist Lauren Kreidler noted a turn to the northwest is expected later Saturday and then north-northwestward by Sunday night.

On the forecast track, the center of Beryl is expected to approach the Texas coast by late Sunday into Monday morning.

The National Hurricane Center said maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph with higher gusts.

Kreidler added, “Beryl will strengthen again and is forecast to once again reach hurricane strength before reaching the Texas coast.”

The tropical storm is going to move over the warm Gulf of Mexico water where it is expected to strengthen back into a Category 1 hurricane.

NHC added that 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 midweek.
