Tropical Storm Beta is slowly closing in on the Texas coastline Monday evening.
On Monday morning, Beta appeared very disorganized on radar and satellite and it encountered very unfavorable conditions such as dry air and shear.
Beta's path shows that it will make landfall sometime this overnight between Corpus Christi and Galveston, Texas, as a weak tropical storm with winds near 45 mph. As of Monday evening, the storm was about 20 miles southeast of Port O'Conner, Texas, and moved northwest at 5 mph.
The biggest threat before landfall will be the storm surge that we have already seen and gusty winds.
As Beta moves onto shore, it will stall and sit in one spot for almost two days, which could bring as much as half a foot of rain to Galveston and 6 to 10 inches to Houston.

Houston does not drain well, so that much rain could cause life-threatening flash flooding.
Hurricane Teddy is expected to move near Bermuda with gusty winds, but the worst of the storm is expected to miss Bermuda even though a Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for the island nation and large waves of up to 13 feet are expected all along the East Coast of the United States.
Teddy is also expected to make landfall in Nova Scotia on Wednesday with tropical storm-force winds.
