Editors note: This story was written Thursday. The Storm Tracker 2 team is keeping a close watch here on Beryl’s latest movement.

Hurricane Beryl’s Official Track:

The National Hurricane Center keeps Beryl making landfall in the Yucatan by Friday morning, There is now a chance for minor strengthening before landfall. However, after Beryl passes through the Yucatan it will lose strength. Next it will push into the Bay of Campeche where it should restrengthen in to a hurricane before making landfall on Sunday.

Landfall across the Yucatan
Beryl will begin to approach the Texas coastline Sunday near the Texas – Mexico border.

No matter what path Beryl takes rip current risk will be high through the weekend, especially by the end of the weekend as Beryl gets closer to the coastline.

Tips for escaping a rip current.
What to expect in SE Texas:

Consensus is that we’ll see Beryl track into northeast Mexico or south Texas Sunday night. If this track verifies the heaviest rain will fall west of Houston. Through Saturday we will only see coastal impacts. People who got coastal flooding with Alberto can certainly expect to see that again. We’ll have high surf and swells and an elevated rip current risk through Sunday. On this path rain amounts will be low through Monday.

10-Day Forecast:

After Beryl makes landfall our weather pattern changes. Similar to the pattern we had a month ago, heavy rain is possible every day next week. This rainfall amounts will be dependent on how far west and north Beryl goes once it moves into Texas.
