Minor to moderate coastal flooding expected along Bays and Gulf will continue today and persist into Tuesday. The highest tides should occur later today and again Monday.
Heavy rain and flash flooding may occur with this slow-moving tropical system. Greatest risk along with the TX and LA coasts where Flash Flood Watch has been issued. The amounts will be dependent on the eventual track of Beta and if training can develop over the region. Excessive rain could develop late tonight into Monday.
Gusty winds also expected along the coast, likely to tropical storm force…with the highest winds near landfall, possibly near Matagorda Bay. Isolated tornadoes and waterspouts will be possible.
