Don Dissipating And Pushing Away From RGV

Rio Grande Valley

The National Hurricane Center has downgraded Tropical Storm Don to a tropical depression.  All tropical storm warnings have been cancelled.  Water vapor imagery shows a significant decrease in water vapor as soon as Don made landfall.  Drier air is quickly filtering in behind it.  For tonight, expect mostly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated showers around.  By tomorrow morning, what’s left  of the showers will be drifting westward out of the area.  Skies will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny tomorrow afternoon.  A stray shower and thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, especially in the morning.  The rest of the weekend looks to be hot and dry.  Temperatures will return back into the middle and upper 90s into the start of the new week.
