Tropical Storm Beta is continuing to line the Texas coast after making landfall late Monday and will bring rain to Central Texas for the next two days.


Showers and thunderstorms are expected Tuesday in Austin with wind gusts up to 20 mph, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is expected to be less than an inch. Expect cooler temperatures in the 70s Tuesday before they rise to the 80s on Wednesday.

Rain is expected to linger into Wednesday, but clear skies can be expected for the rest of the week.

The Weather Channel reports the Houston area has received some of the heaviest rain so far with up to 10 inches and is expected to gain another 10 inches by the end of Wednesday.

The tropical storm is reportedly moving slowly at 3 mph along the coast with winds at 40 mph and is expected to be a tropical depression by Wednesday.

Beta is the ninth tropical storm to make landfall in the U.S. this year. It is the 23rd named tropical storm, making it the second in history to be named according to the Greek alphabet after all 21 alphabetical names were exhausted this season.
