Tropical Storm Beta makes landfall in Texas

Biggest unknown with Tropical Storm Beta is how much rain it will bring

Tropical Storm Beta is slowly closing in on the Texas coastline Monday.

As whatever is left of Beta begins to lift northeast on Wednesday, increasing moisture and instability should lead to better chances of some downpours impacting our local area. Flash flooding was possible in Arkansas and MS as the system moves farther inland. Harvey in 2017 dumped more than 50 inches (127 centimetres) of rain on Houston, causing $125 billion in damage in Texas.

Beta would be the ninth named storm to make landfall in the continental US this year.


Hurricane Teddy is expected to move near Bermuda with gusty winds, but the worst of the storm is expected to miss Bermuda even though a Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the island nation and large waves of up to 13 feet are expected all along the East Coast of the United States. Imelda, which hit Southeast Texas a year ago, was one of the wettest cyclones on record. The storm has already dropped up to a foot of rain in some areas and more is on the way Tuesday. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says we're going to have to be careful if we go out today. Hunter said the worry of another storm was "an emotional and mental toll for a lot of our citizens".

The storm was producing 35 mph winds Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center, and was centered around 15 miles from Victoria, Texas.

Parts of the Alabama coast and Florida Panhandle were still reeling from Hurricane Sally, which roared ashore Wednesday, causing at least two deaths. However, Teddy's convection is starting to disappear, leaving forecasters to expect Teddy's strength to diminish before making landfall, and may do so as a Category 1 hurricane or weaker. Hurricane Paulette made landfall in Bermuda on September 14, knocking down trees and leaving thousands without power. Now a tropical storm, Paulette was expected to become a post-tropical remnant low in the next day or so. "Welcome back to the land of the living, Tropical Storm #Paulette".
