“Well ahead of Beryl, onshore winds could lead to increasing surf, rip currents, and coastal flooding along parts of the Gulf Coast from eastern Mexico to Texas beginning as soon as Friday evening and continuing until just after Beryl's final landfall. The rip current threat could even extend farther east along the northern Gulf Coast, as well,” said The Weather Channel.

Also, “we could see an increase in the coverage of showers and storms by mid-week as deeper tropical moisture associated with the remnants of Beryl move in,” said Spann.
