Heading to the beach this weekend? Brett Anthony's got you covered with Brett's Beach Ball Forecast!

CBS19's Brett Anthony has got you covered all summer long as you head to the beach!

TYLER, Texas — Summer is almost over, but that doesn't mean you can't have one last hurrah at the coast!

That's why CBS19 Chief Meteorologist Brett Anthony created Brett's Beach Ball Forecast to make sure you're prepared as you head to your favorite beach this summ

We're focusing on beaches that are roughly a day's-drive from East Texas - places like Galveston, Port Aransas, South Padre Island, Gulf Shores and even Destin!

So, before you load up the car, check out Brett's Beach Ball Forecast so you'll know if you'll be hitting the beach or hitting the local movie theater until the rain stops. 

Also, don't forget to follow Brett on Facebook and Twitter.


The unofficial end of summer is upon us and thankfully the last beach ball report of the summer season is good one. 

There will be no hurricanes to track or deal with this weekend, but, there will be plenty of sun - too much sun and too much heat, especially if an older adult. 

National and state mortality data shows heat as the top killer among all weather-related hazards - that includes tornadoes and hurricanes. But health care providers don’t always report heat-related illness or heat as an underlying cause of death, that makes it harder to track the actual impact on heat and health.   

Have fun, don’t overdo it. Enjoy the beach in moderation and make sure you’re staying ahead of the game when it comes to hydration and keeping cool.  

Thanks for spending time, reading and watching Brett’s Beach Ball Forecast. We can’t for next summer when we will produce more segments. In the meantime as seasons change remember, we’ve got you covered.
