Hurricane Teddy Accelerates Away From Bermuda, Beta Moving Toward Texas Coast

Hurricane Teddy continued its push Monday through the Atlantic Ocean, moving away from South Florida and keeping Bermuda and parts of Canada on guard, while Tropical Storm Beta moved toward the Texas coast Monday evening.

The latest advisory for Teddy had the system with winds of 100 mph while it moved north at 25 mph about 295 miles to the east-northeast of Bermuda.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for portions of Nova Scotia, Canada.

Forecasters expect the storm to continue north of Bermuda before turning north-northwest, causing rainfall of up to six inches ahead of striking Canada later this week as a post-tropical cyclone, according to the National Hurricane Center.

In the Gulf, Tropical Storm Beta was inching closer to the Texas coast and brought heavy rains to the central coast. Beta was forecast to moved inland overnight Monday and remain close to the coast of southeastern Texas on Tuesday.

South Florida could see impact from a system that is forecast to go around the southern tip of the state and bring rain to the area for the start of the week, but only has a 10% chance of becoming a named storm in the next five days.
