Tropical Storm Dolly – 2008-8

Dolly Weakens to a Tropical Storm

At 10:00pm CDT:

– All hurricane warnings have been discontinued.

– The center of Tropical Storm Dolly is located 55 miles northwest of
Brownsville, Texas. Movement is towards the west at 7mph and this
motion is expected to continue until dissipation on Friday. Maximum
sustained winds are near 70mph and additional weakening will occur
with Dolly becoming a tropical depression by late Thursday. Minimum
surface pressure is 981mb.

– Tropical storm force winds extend outward to 115 miles from the center.

– This is the last discussion on Dolly.


Dolly continues to move slowly west across southern Texas. This is
producing a significant flash flooding threat as excessive rainfall is
occurring over several counties. Dolly will continue to move slowly
west the next 24 hours and should clear much of Texas by late
Thursday. As Dolly approaches the higher terrain of old Mexico, the
low level circulation will be ripped apart. As such, dissipation is
likely by late Friday.
