Storm Summary and Projection:
Hurricane Summary POSTED: September 2, 2014 10:48 p.m. Tropical Storm Dolly Moves Ashore Tropical Storm Dolly moved ashore just south of Tampico, Mexico tonight with sustained winds of 45 mph. Heavy rain from a weakening Dolly will be the most prevalent threat over the next 36 hours with several inches of rain expected, mostly south of the Rio Grande River. The area of greatest threat will be in the foothills and higher terrain of the Sierra Madre Oriental where rainfall can reach 4-8 inches, with locally higher amounts, resulting in mudslides and life-threatening flash flooding overnight and Wednesday. Wind damage should be at a relative minimum as the zone in which the strongest winds are expected will be relatively narrow along and to the north of where the storm makes landfall. There will be wind gusts as high as 55 mph in this small area overnight. Winds will ease even more Wednesday when Dolly will be downgraded to a depression early in the day, and then a remnant low before Wednesday night. Locally heavy, but isolated showers will continue Wednesday night into Thursday after the system has dissipated. Dolly will also create rough surf and rip currents from the central Texas coast southward along the coast of Mexico through the day on Wednesday. Some minor coastal over-wash is possible near and just to the north of where Dolly crosses the coastline. Elsewhere across the Atlantic, there are a few tropical waves, but none that pose an imminent threat for tropical development. By AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Dave Houk
