10am Friday Update on Hurricane Beryl


Here is the color code:
  • Red = hurricane warning. 
  • Brown = area of hurricane force ( >75 mph) winds.
  • Amber = area of tropical storm force winds (40-74 mph).
  • Red = hurricane warning. 
  • Blue = tropical storm warning.
  • White = what is called "the cone" -- which is the area in which the center of the storm is forecast to move. There can be major effects of any hurricane outside of the cone. 
  •  S means "tropical storm" while H means hurricane and M means "major" (Cat 3-5) hurricane. 

    As expected, the path forecast now brings the center of Beryl onto the Texas coast. There is a significant chance the storm could come inland farther north than shown. I believe the wind speed at landfall will be in the 90-95 mph range. Power failures are likely.

    I expect hurricane watches will be issued late today or tomorrow morning for the Texas coast and far northeast Mexico.
