ALG Connect Weather Alert: Tropical Storm Beta to Crawl Near Texas Coast

Tropical Storm Beta to Crawl Near Texas Coast With a Threat of Flooding Rainfall, Including in Houston

Tropical Storm Beta will track near the Texas Gulf Coast through Wednesday, where it could produce significant flash flooding, including in the Houston metro area. Beta will also produce areas of lingering coastal flooding and gusty winds.


Beta remains a tropical storm and is moving slowly just inland from the middle Texas coast. NOAA's Weather Prediction Center has issued a high risk of excessive rainfall and flooding for Tuesday on the upper Texas coast, including Houston.  There could be localized rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches farther inland from the coast as far north and east as the Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas Region and the lower Mississippi Valley through the end of the week. Flash flood watches have been issued by the National Weather Service from the middle Texas coast to southeast Louisiana, including Houston, Lake Charles and New Orleans. Tropical-storm-force wind gusts (39 mph or greater) could continue today in the tropical storm warning area, from Port Aransas, Texas, to Sabine Pass, Texas. The strongest winds will be in the offshore waters.
