Update on Beta, Teddy, and Long Island:
Tropical Storm Beta has weakened somewhat overnight with maximum sustained winds down to 50 mph. Projected rainfall totals for the Texas coast are now mostly in the 4 to 8 inch range, although the National Hurricane Center continues to mention isolated totals up to 15 inches. Peak storm surge is still projected at 3 to 5 feet in and around Galveston Bay.
There is no change in the general forecast for Hurricane Teddy as it will pass east of Bermuda today as a powerful Cat 2 hurricane today with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph. It will then bend a little closer to the New England coast as it transitions into a powerful extratropical storm with a huge wind field (but lower peak winds) by the time it makes landfall in Nova Scotia Wednesday morning.
After Beta and Teddy are gone, it doesn't look like there will be any new tropical storms or hurricanes for the rest of the month.
- High surf, beach erosion, and beach flooding are likely today through tomorrow. There will be a high rip current risk through at least tomorrow.
