Downgraded to a tropical depression, the remnants of Alex continued to dump heavy rains on the mountains of northern Mexico, and were expected to bring heavy rains and flash flood watches to south Texas for at least another day, according to forecasters with the National Hurricane Center, which issued its final advisory Thursday night on the first hurricane and first named storm of the 2010 season.

At 10 p.m. Thursday, the remnants of Alex were located near latitude 23.3 north, longitude 102.4 west, and were moving toward the west at about 12 mph. As much as 20 inches of rain were predicted in the high terrain of northern Mexico.

Alex came ashore early Thursday as a Category 2 hurricane, packing 96 mph winds as it landed near San Fernando in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, about 75 miles south of the Texas-Mexico border.
