TS Beta

posted Sep 19, 2020, 12:24 PM by Weston Lakes Emergency Management

As an update related to Tropical Storm Beta:


  • Attached are the slides from the 10:30am NWS weather briefing.  This briefing can also be viewed on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/user/NWSHouston
  • Beta is still a tropical storm – it has not intensified overnight, although it could still become a weak hurricane
  • Impacts for Fort Bend County include (NOTE: this is all dependent on the storm track, which is still uncertain):
    • Potential TS force winds starting overnight Sunday into early next week
    • Expect rainfall Monday through Wednesday with the highest chances of rain being Tuesday and Wednesday
    • Rainfall estimates are currently around 7+ inches of rain Monday through Wednesday
  • Beta is a slow moving storm – this means that higher winds and rain could stick around for a couple of days early next week
  • Beta is NOT like Harvey in that we do not have the moisture levels that were in place for Harvey (that was what caused so much rain)
  • Again, all of our rivers, creeks, bayous, and reservoirs are in good shape (i.e. really low/near empty)
  • If we do experience any flooding, it will likely be flash flooding on streets due rain – not river flooding
  • There is still uncertainty in the forecast and track – stay tuned for future updates

northwestward at about 10 mph.  Interests in the western Gulf of 
Mexico should monitor the progress of this system, as watches or 
warnings could be required for portions of the coasts of Texas and 
Louisiana later today or tonight.  An Air Force Reserve Hurricane 
Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system this

NWS Outlook

Expect widespread showers and thunderstorms across SE TX today as a weak low pressure system moves further inland. Rainfall totals should average 1-2 inches with isolated totals from 3 to 5 inches possible. Activity should diminish this evening.

Also NWA is continuing to monitor a tropical wave over western Cuba that will move west-northwest into the Gulf of Mexico in the coming days. There is now a 40% chance this could develop into a tropical cyclone later this week. Impacts to South Texas are too uncertain at this time as the system has yet to organize.
