Posted: Tuesday, August 22, 2023. 9:27 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Tropical Storm Harold made landfall this morning on Padre Island in Texas.

Heavy rains and tropical storm force winds are expected during the next several hours.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for the mouth of Rio Grande to Port O’Connor, Texas.

Harold is moving toward the west-northwest near 21 mph (33 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue, taking the system inland over southern Texas and  northern Mexico.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.

Harold is forecast to weaken to a tropical depression later today.

However, torrential rains could occur along the immediate coast and storm surge will be accompanied by large waves.

Weather experts also warned that tornadoes are possible across south Texas through the afternoon.
