Arlene's strength is 996 mb with a maximum sustained wind of 60 mph. She has just a few hours left to strengthen before landfall. Now the question is how much rain will be delivered to the drought stricken areas of northern Mexico and Southern Texas. Be careful what you wish for I guess you could say. Mexico will likely get more rain than it can handle. Slow moving tropical storms can drop more rain than some hurricanes. Brownesville, Texas has already recieved 5 inches of rain this week as a result of Arlene and they are expecting 2 to 3 more inches from the outer bands of Arlene. You can tell by the graphic made by the NWS in Brownsville that the rain is welcome.
