Summary - Tropical Storm Beta is centered just over 100 miles south of Galveston, Texas, and is moving westward towards the Texas coast at little over 5 mph. The expected slow motion of Beta will produce a long duration rainfall event, bringing the risk of storm surge and flooding from the middle Texas coast to southeast Louisiana. Meanwhile, Hurricane Teddy will remain in the Atlantic but bring swells, dangerous surf, and rip currents to much of the east coast. States with Active Advisories: Texas, Louisiana
After landfall, Beta will drift northeastward on the Texas coast Monday night through Wednesday.
