Arlene is bringing rain to Texas from Corpus Christi to the South. It isn’t a lot, but it will add some water to the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo and take the edge off the heat.

Update: At 7PM CDT, Arlene has been downgraded to a tropical depression and will become a remnant low in the mountains of Central Mexico.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coast of Mexico from La Pesca southward to Palma Sola.
