STORM SURGE: [TOP] Water levels along the southern coast of Louisiana will continue to subside into this evening. However, some minor coastal flooding is still possible through today. For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.

RAINFALL: [TOP] Barry is expected to produce additional rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches across portions of the lower Mississippi Valley with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches across eastern Arkansas, western Tennessee, southeast Missouri, and northwest Mississippi.

Additional rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches with isolated storm totals of 10-15 inches are expected across south-central Louisiana.

This additional rainfall will lead to dangerous, life threatening flooding.

WIND: [TOP] Gale-force winds, especially in gusts, could occur across the coastal areas of southwestern Louisiana into this evening.

However, these winds are not directly associated with Barry's circulation.

TORNADOES: [TOP] A couple of tornadoes are possible through Sunday night across parts of southeast Louisiana, Mississippi, western Alabama, eastern Arkansas, and western Tennessee.


At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Barry was located by NOAA Doppler radars and surface observations near latitude 32.8 North, longitude 93.6 West. The depression is moving toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h) and this general motion is forecast tonight through Monday morning. A motion toward the north-northeast and northeast is expected Monday afternoon into Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Barry will move across the northwestern portions of Louisiana today, and over Arkansas tonight and Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. These winds are occurring near the coast well to the southeast and south of the center. Further weakening is expected as the center moves farther inland, and Barry is forecast to degenerate into a remnant low pressure system by Monday night.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).
