Edouard Now a Depression, Last Advisory Issued

Edouard has been downgraded to a depression tonight and will become just an area of low pressure on Wednesday. It is currently centered near the Lake Livingston/Onalaska area, and will continue to drift slowly to the west/northwest over the next 24 to 48 hours. This will bring heavy rains to parts of Central Texas, which could use some considering they are in a much more severe drought than what we have currently in East Texas.

While Edouard will weaken and move into Central Texas on Wednesday, we will still be close enough and have enough moisture in place to generate some rain showers in the heating of the day. After tomorrow, though, we start to dry things out on Thursday as temperatures start to go back up into the upper 90's.

This will be our last post and update on Edouard. Please feel free to leave comments and let us know about what you liked or didn't like about our coverage.
