Tropical Storm Beta is predicted to make landfall near Matagorda Bay without strengthening to a hurricane. As shown in the forecasts, TS Beta is likely to make landfall on Tuesday. We don’t expect this to be a severe wind event but because the current forecast and models continue to show TS Beta to be a relatively slow-moving storm, and the forecasted landfall west of the Houston metro area, there is potential for local flash flooding and street flooding.
