Tropical Storm Beryl is moving onshore Sunday evening during high tide, so coastal flooding is a major concern. The expected 4" to 8" of precipitation in some spots will spin into Florida all Memorial Day. Much like Texas last year a multi-year drought persist,  so these drought busting rains couldn't have come at a better time, even if it's a holiday.

Beryl is expected to weaken into a depression in Northern Florida through Memorial day.  It should begin a turn more northeasterly early this week and push just off the Carolina coast by midweek. Long range models show the potential for another tropical system by the end of the weekend. The Caribbean is the most likely start for the next named storm. Stay with KHOU-11 and KHOU.com as we track the progress of Beryl.
