Beryl regains steam en route to Texas coast

The storm is expected to make landfall early Monday as an intensifying category 1 or 2 hurricane.

NWS: Hurricane Beryl has made landfall in Matagorda, TX as a category 1, with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph with a minimum central pressure of 979 MB.

AP News: The storm was projected to come ashore early Monday in the middle of the Texas coast around Matagorda Bay, an area about 100 miles (161 kilometers) south of Houston, but officials cautioned the path could still change.

Jeff Masters: After racking up more accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) than any Atlantic hurricane so early in the season – not to mention hitting category 5 strength at a record-early point – Tropical Storm Beryl was hurtling toward its final landfall. One last round of strengthening is expected before Beryl reaches the middle Texas coast early Monday morning, and Beryl could make landfall as a rapidly intensifying category 1 or 2 hurricane.
