Dolly's Moisture More Than Welcome

Dolly has achieved hurricane status, with sustained winds of 75 mph and gusts to 90 mph. This storm likely won't be about the wind and storm surge, as it is not forecast to intensify that much. However, Dolly is packing some serious tropical moisture that will likely be wrung out in the form of heavy rain. Some areas will likely receive several inches of rain, before Dolly gradually moves into north-central Mexico and takes its moisture with it. With South Texas in the midst of a severe drought, this is just the forecast many have wanted. I think it might be too much of a good thing too quickly, as Flash Flooding will likely become a problem throughout the Rio Grande Valley. This is a story you will likely be hearing a lot about, throughout the next week.
