Dolly Update 4:00 PM

Tropical Storm Dolly continues spinning in the southwest Gulf of Mexico. She does not look that good on satellite as dry air from the Yucatan is keeping storms from forming in the southeast corner of the circulation. However, as she pulls away from land, that should change and then Dolly is expected to become a category one hurricane. Landfall is still projected to be just north of Brownsville, but it seems like the computer models keep moving slightly northward with the track. So in the end, it could hit closer to Corpus Christi than Brownsville. Either way, south Texas is going to get a lot of rain, winds, and high surf.
For East Texas, the only impact from Dolly we will see is a higher chance for rain on Wednesday. Other than that, all the action will be well south of us. Tune in tonight at 5, 6, and 10 for the latest on Tropical Storm Dolly.
