BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Tropical Storm Warnings continue from Corpus Christi to Brownsville as Harold moves toward the Texas Gulf Coast.

Harold looks to primarily be a beneficial rainmaker, though some areas of flash flooding and coastal flooding will be possible throughout Tuesday and into Tuesday evening.

The Brazos Valley may get a glancing blow from a very outer rainband over the course of the day Tuesday, but the bigger impact will be a breezy east wind that will make for very high fire danger. Any rain that falls will be capable of a quick tenth to quarter inch, but many will miss out.
