TS Don: July 29, Update A

A quick note: TS Don’s outer rainbands have been moving onshore over southern Texas/Mexico during the day today. The center is still offshore at around 26.6M, 96W and is moving WNW at 15mph – a few more hours to go until landfall. Winds have remained at near 50mph (from a plane, and also just under that from satellite information). Central pressure is 1004mb, so fairly high already. This is obviously more of a rain and thunderstorm event than a wind event.

I’ll be back later, once he’s made landfall.
Until then,
