Hurricane Beryl Makes Landfall In Texas, Storms Expected In North Texas

North Texas can expect rain, wind and potentially hail

Hurricane Beryl made landfall this morning and is expected to bring multiple hazards across Texas throughout the day, before tracking northeast over the next few days. 

According to the National Weather Service, showers and thunderstorms in North Texas are likely, followed by showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 4 p.m. 

The high will be near 85°F, with an east-northeast wind at 10 to 15 mph, gusting up to 25 mph. There is an 80% chance of precipitation, with new rainfall amounts between a tenth and a quarter of an inch, except for higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue throughout the night mainly before 1 a.m. The low will be around 71°F, with a north-northeast wind at 15 to 20 mph, gusting up to 35 mph. There is an 80% chance of precipitation, with new rainfall amounts between a quarter and half an inch possible.

Life-threatening coastal effects, including rip currents, are anticipated for the north-central Gulf Coast. Excessive rainfall and a few tornadoes are likely, primarily along and east of Beryl's path. The exact path will significantly impact who receives the heaviest rainfall, with potentially sharp cutoffs in those totals.

“As Hurricane Beryl approaches the Texas coast, now is the time for Texans to make their final preparations to protect themselves and their property,” Dan Patrick said in an official statement. “It is of utmost importance that Texans pay close attention to their local officials.” 

As of Sunday night, Beryl's inner core radius extended to about 35-40 miles in diameter, which is quite large for an intensifying tropical cyclone. As long as this core remains broad, Beryl's intensification will continue to be gradual. 

The Texas Division of Emergency Management increased the readiness level of the State Emergency Operations Center as of 10 a.m. Friday and Texas Emergency Management Council agencies are working 24-hour operations, while also continuing to pre-position state emergency response resources that were readied for deployment by Governor Greg Abbott. 

Seven Frisco Fire Department personnel are currently in position to assist those impacted by Beryl. In addition to four personnel deployed with the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System, one additional member is assisting Texas Task Force 1 and two are assisting Texas Task Force 2.
