MATAGORDA, Texas — Beryl slammed into Texas, near Matagorda, early Monday morning as a Category 1 hurricane.

After making landfall early Monday morning, Beryl weakened to a tropical storm late Monday morning.

As of 5 p.m., Beryl had weakened to 45 mph, but the outer feeder bands tied to the storm prompted a tornado watch and flash flood warnings for the Deep South.

Beryl will weaken to a depression and then a remnant low as it arrives in the Great Lakes on Wednesday.

Most of the Texas Gulf coastline will deal with flooding and flash flooding as rainfall totals will be between 5 and 10 inches. Some areas could be near 15 inches.

The storm reached the U.S. after leaving a trail of destruction over the last week in Mexico and the Caribbean.

There will be a rip current risk in the Gulf through Monday.

The rest of the tropics are quiet with nothing expected to develop this week.
