All eyes on Barry

Good Saturday and welcome to the weekend. We continue to see mainly dry conditions out there today, but tropical moisture is about to increase in our part of the world. That will really be the case early next week as the remnants of Barry roll our way.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Highs should range from 85-90 in most areas with a mainly dry sky. There is a slight chance for a shower or storm across our southern counties. Here is your regional radar to help you out:

A weak cold front drops in from the north on Sunday and will combine forces with offshoot tropical moisture to produce a few showers and storms, A setup like this can produce a few cloudbursts, so keep that in mind.

Hurricane Barry is makes landfall early today in Louisiana, bringing a huge and a ton of rain. Here are the tracking toys to follow along:

Barry has been a very unbalanced storm with much of the rain on the eastern side of the center of circulation. That’s expected to be the case well inland as this storm spins up the Mississippi River Valley and into the lower Ohio Valley through the middle of next week. The WPC rainfall forecast indicates the potential for some hefty numbers:

 

That matches up well with the potential impact zone I put out several days ago:

The greatest impact on our weather is likely to come from later Monday through early Thursday. Heavy rainfall will be likely during this time and that’s something we will have to keep a close eye on.

Have a good one and take care.
