Saturday PM Weather – Beta Promised Heavy Rain Potential To Texas

Beta Remains a 60mph Tropical Storm

Hope you enjoyed the sunshine today, because conditions go downhill tomorrow. Tropical storm Beta in the NW gulf slowly moving and strengthening, as it makes its way toward the Texas coast. Possibly reaching cat 1 hurricane status Monday, as it nears Matagorda bay area. Model runs have the storm moving very slowly today through Tuesday, which could mean heavy flood producing rain for the area, especially from highway 59 southward to the coast. I think possible hurricane conditions could be the case in southern Calhoun county, just tropical storm conditions in Victoria. Storm moves along the coast and east of our area by pm hours Wednesday, then improving conditions by then. Highs 80’s, lows near 70.~ Trey
