Tropical Storm Dolly Heads for Gulf: Hurricane Watch for South Texas Coast

Cristobal Clearing Carolina Coast

The center of Tropical Storm Dolly is moving away from the northern Yucatan coast today, heading for the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the Texas coast from Brownsville to Port O'Connor, and a Tropical Storm Watch extends northward to San Luis Pass. Maximum winds are near 50 mph, and the storm could become a Category 1 hurricane by tomorrow. Tropical Storm Dolly is moving toward the west-northwest at 18 mph.

Tropical Storm Cristobal continues to move away from the Carolina coast, but it has strengthened, with maximum winds of 65 mph. Cristobal is moving northeast at about 13 mph on a track which should bring it near the coasts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in the next couple of days.
