Hurricane watches have been issued for much of the Texas Coast as Tropical Storm Beryl turns its sights on Texas after after making landfall in the Yucatán Peninsula. All residents in Texas should monitor the progress of Beryl.

Here's where watches and warnings are in effect:

-​ Hurricane Watch: From the mouth of the Rio Grande northward to Sargent, Texas. T​his means that hurricane conditions (winds 75+ mph) are possible by late Sunday or  Monday morning in these locations.

-​ Storm Surge Watch: from the mouth of the Rio Grande northward to Sargent, Texas. This means that life-threatening storm surge flooding is possible. tell us that preparations along the Texas coast for hurricane conditions should be completed by Sunday evening.

All of South Texas should be preparing for a hurricane. Beryl is expected to make landfall late Sunday night or early Monday morning somewhere near or along the Coastal Bend as a Category 1 Hurricane, though plan for a Category 2

There is a 20-35% chance of tropical storm force winds within the next five days, with the earliest reasonable arrival time along the Middle Texas Coast Sunday morning and most likely Sunday night. It's crucial to remain prepared and vigilant in this uncertainty.

Regardless of the track, dangerous rip currents and tidal runup along the coast will continue through the holiday weekend. Storm surge and seas will begin to increase later this weekend.

The coast will have dangerous swimming conditions! Any outer rainbands may produce wind gusts at or above tropical storm force, and a few isolated tornadoes will be possible, particularly from Sunday through Monday. Due to the potential for heavy rainfall and the training of showers/storms, there is a chance of flash flooding across the Coastal Bend, Coastal Plains, and Victoria Crossroads.
