Tropical Storm Beryl will strengthen as it moves toward the Texas-Mexico border this weekend, bringing the risk of strong winds, life-threatening storm surge and dangerous flooding to Texas beginning late Sunday. It is expected to be the first storm to make landfall in the United States of the 2024 Atlantic season. Here’s the latest:

Beryl is expected to regain strength before making landfall: Beryl, now a tropical storm, entered the Gulf of Mexico and was about 560 miles (900 kilometers) from Corpus Christi, Texas, late Friday. The storm is bringing strong winds, heavy rains and dangerous storm surges to much of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula after hitting several islands in the Caribbean. Beryl is then expected to strengthen again before making its final entrance into southern Texas as a hurricane late Sunday or Monday.

– Hurricane and storm monitoring: A hurricane watch is in effect for the Texas coast from the mouth of the Rio Grande north to San Luis Pass. A storm surge watch is also in effect for the Texas coast from the Rio Grande north to High Island. A hurricane watch is in effect for the northeastern coast of Mexico, from Barra Mezquital to the mouth of the Rio Grande.

Beryl is expected to hit South Texas: Beryl is expected to make landfall on South Padre Island, Texas, near the Texas-Mexico border, as a Category 1 hurricane late Sunday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said the state will likely begin seeing Beryl’s effects starting Sunday and continuing through Monday. “We’re praying and hoping that we don’t get any more rain, but even the rain could be very heavy,” Patrick said. “We’re preparing for the worst-case scenario in the state.”
