Hurricane Dolly – 2008-7

Dolly Inland and Weakening

At 4:00pm CDT –

– The center of Category 1 Hurricane Dolly was located 50 miles north
of Brownsville. Movement is towards the northwest at 8mph and a turn
towards the west-northwest is expected by Thursday. Maximum sustained
winds are near 85mph and weakening is forecast. Minimum surface
pressure is 970mb.

– Hurricane force winds extend outward to 35 miles and tropical storm
force winds to 140 miles.

Discussion:

Dolly continues to track inland and will weaken accordingly. Due to
the slow movement the decay of Dolly will seemingly take longer than
normal, although the usual physical properties do remain the same.
Common 6-10 inches of rain remain likely with isolated totals of 15
inches. Dolly continues to produce the majority of rainfall on the
southern side of the system. However, this does include Brownsville
and a few other counties in south Texas. This is in line with 12z
numerical guidance.
