   Areas affected...The Texas Coast near Galveston Island

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 513...

   Valid 080728Z - 080915Z


   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 513 continues.

   SUMMARY...The greatest tornado threat with Hurricane Beryl will
   exist in the vicinity of Galveston Island over the next few hours.

   DISCUSSION...Two outer rain bands with embedded mini-supercells are
   rotating inland near Galveston Island early this evening. One of
   these storms produced an apparent tornado debris signature as it
   crossed the southern part of the island. As these rotating storms
   continue to pivot inland this morning, expect a continued tornado
   threat. However, this threat is expected to remain mostly confined
   to areas near the coast where the best wind profile and instability
   exists. Expect the greatest tornado threat to shift north through
   the early morning hours as outer bands shift north due to Hurricane
   Beryl's continued northward movement.
