Update: Beta’s turn towards the Texas coast has begun; shear and dry air could limit further strengthening

Weather

10 am Saturday Update: Beta has not strengthened any since Friday evening. Upper-level shear and some dry air over the western Gulf of Mexico may work to limit further strengthening. Beta is forecast to make landfall late Monday night or early Tuesday morning over the middle Texas coast as a strong Tropical Storm or category one hurricane. It is then expected to turn towards the northeast and move along the Texas coast possibly moving into south Louisiana by Thursday. Given the erradic movement caused by changing steering influences, there is a great deal of uncertainty as to where Beta could go after landfall. It is possible that we could see the system stall somewhere near or to the south of the ArkLaTex next week. This could bring heavy rain to much of our area. It is a bit early to predict with confidence how much we might get, but several inches of rain will be possible. We will see some well below normal temperatures because of Beta’s clouds and rain. You can see the latest forecasts and possible impacts for the coast and the ArkLaTex in the continuously updated loop below.

Today was a pretty nice day around the ArkLaTex. You may have noticed a bit of haze in the air. Some of the smoke from the western wildfires has finally made it into our area. Models show this smoke dissipating some this weekend.
