Tropical Cyclone Beryl to Bring Damaging Winds & Embedded Tornadoes; Texas Coast; July 7— 8th, 2024

Brief Outlook:

Hurricane and Tropical Storm Conditions with very strong storms expected across the Texas Gulf Coast, capable of damaging winds, and a few embedded tornadoes spinning up mainly Sunday night into early Monday. Check below for further details, timing and much more information.

States and Cities Impacted: Texas (Houston, Corpus Christi).

Detailed Forecast:

Tropical Cyclone Beryl is forecast to approach the middle Texas Gulf Coast. As Beryl moves through the western periphery of subtropical ridging, enhanced low to mid-level flow will increase, supporting the potential for severe thunderstorms. Enhanced wind shear, particularly in the mid and upper levels, will support organized storm structures, including supercells capable of producing damaging winds, large hail, and potentially a few tornadoes.

At the surface, instability values are expected to reach around 2000-2500 J/kg, with dewpoints in the mid to upper 70s. Rainbands associated with Beryl will likely spread northwestward into the region during the afternoon. The interaction between the tropical moisture and the advancing upper-level trough will foster the development of severe thunderstorms.

Future Radar Scenario:


Rainbands associated with Beryl are expected to begin affecting the region in the early afternoon. The most intense activity is likely from mid-afternoon to early evening, with thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds and embedded tornadoes throughout the night.

Main Impact: Damaging winds, large hail, and a few tornadoes.
