Rough Day On The Gulf Coast

The Wednesday morning NOAA visible light satellite picture shows that hurricane Dolly is about to make landfall along the Texas/Mexico coast.

At 9am EDT Dolly was 40 miles east of Brownsville, Texas. Brownsville is inland and the satellite picture shows that the eyewall appears to be on the coast. The storm is moving northwest at 8 mph. Winds are 95 mph., making Dolly a category 1 storm. Forecasters think the storm could reach category 2 before weakening. Hurricane hunter aircraft have measured the central pressure of the storm at 28.56″
