TexChef Wrote:Just talked to my 78 yr old grandparents who live in Weslaco, between Harligen and McAllen, they said its worse than Beula. They have been without power for some time, and have no generator. They are going to try and get one in the morn, if they cant I will be making a trip down there soon to pack them up and move them north. It doesnt look like its getting better anytime soon, and without power they will not make it long. I send my prayers to all down there I think its much worse than they ever expected. I know the NHC was right on with the track, but NO one down there expected this strength. There are alot of people in alot of trouble down there right now, please send your prayers tonite.

They're in our prayers, TexChef. We never are really prepared for how awesomely powerful these things are, no matter how much we're warned. Take care of the folks---the heat will probably be unbearable tomorrow.

Tropical Storm Dolly Discussion Number 16
Nws Tpc/national Hurricane Center Miami Fl Al042008
500 Am Edt Thu Jul 24 2008

The Center Of Dolly Is Slowly Wobbling Along...well Inland Over Deep
South Texas...at About 295/6. The Eye Is Almost Gone From Radar
Imagery...but The Surrounding Rain Shield Is Still Quite
Solid...especially In The Southeastern Semicircle Where It Extends
All The Way Down Across The Rio Grande And Eastward Back To The
Coast. In Addition...a Few Potent Outer Rain Bands Persist
Near And Just Off The Coast. Wsr-88d Velocities Adjusted For
Altitude Suggest Surface Winds As Strong As About 50 Kt Along The
Coastline Due East Of The Center...so The Initial Intensity Is Set
To 50 Kt...and The Coastal Tropical Storm Warning Remains In
Effect. As Dolly Proceeds Inland Today...winds Will Diminish Along
The Coast...and The Coastal Tropical Storm Warning Will Likely Be
Discontinued Later This Morning.
The Current West-northwestward Heading Should Continue For The Next
Day Or Two...with Perhaps A Little Increase In Forward Speed...as
Dolly Is Steered By A Mid-level Ridge To Its North. This Motion
Will Take The Cyclone Farther Inland And Over Increasingly Rugged
Terrain...so Dolly Is Forecast To Weaken To A Depression Within 24
Hours...and The Circulation Is Not Expected To Last For More Than
36-48 Hours. Despite The Forecast Weakening...dolly Will Continue
To Dump Very Heavy Rains For Many More Hours...so A Significant
Potential For Inland Flooding Continues.


Forecast Positions And Max Winds

Initial 24/0900z 26.9n 98.6w 50 Kt
12hr Vt 24/1800z 27.3n 99.8w 35 Kt...inland
24hr Vt 25/0600z 27.9n 101.9w 25 Kt...inland
36hr Vt 25/1800z 28.4n 104.1w 20 Kt...remnant Low
