Tropical Storm Beta

Tropical Storm Beta, the 21st named storm of the 2020 season, is already one month ahead of the pace set by the record 2005 season. Beta is forecasted to come ashore along the central Texas coast Monday (Sept 21st) as a Tropical Storm, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph.

Taking a similar path to Hurricane Harvey in 2017, Beta is expected to meander along the Texas coast for the next few days, bringing heavy rain from the central to northeastern Texas coast. Unlike Harvey, extreme rainfall is expected to only be localized, due to a limited precipitation shield and the presence of dry air.

Hurricane Beta

As a Tropical Storm, Beta is not expected to post a storm surge threat, nor cause widespread wind damage. However, a low tornado threat will be present while Beta is in the area.
