🚩TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS ARE NOW IMPACTING SOUTHERN LOUISIANA... 20+ INCHES OF RAIN STILL FORECAST TO IMPACT COASTAL REGIONS OF LA.... 🚩
1PM CDT UPDATE ON TS BARRY:

Pressure: 993mb
Winds: 65mph
Forecast: Expected to strengthen before landfall to CAT 1 Hurricane
Tropical Storm force winds extend outwards 175 miles from the center (“eye”) of #TropicalStormBarry ... therefore a “direct strike” of the storm’s center is not needed to experience damaging winds and extreme rainfall!
4:45PM EDT- #TropicalStormBarry remains a lopsided storm (which again remains good news for Louisiana at the moment)... wind shear and some dry slots on the northern side of the storm are likely keeping Barry from getting more intense. Still has 175 mile wide TROP Storm winds.
7PM EDT UPDATE on #TropicalStormBarry

Assuming the cyclone keeps on this current heading, I don’t see a path where it makes hurricane strength prior to landfall.

If it jogs a bit more west, then possibly. Next few hours will make a huge difference in the forecast
Doesn’t look like much right now on the KLIX radar at New Orleans, but this will get much worse before it gets better as #TropicalStormBarry makes his way north / northwest into Louisiana.

If ordered to evacuate; do it. 20+ inches of water is no joke (3-6 foot storm surge)
#TropicalStormBarry still remains a highly asymmetrical cyclone at Midnight EDT.

Regardless, wherever Barry crosses land with that ugly mess on the south end of the storm, will have to deal with Noah’s Ark kind of rains.

Get your boats 🚣 and life-vests our if you are staying!
If #TropicalStormBarry had a north side to it... it would be catastrophic beyond words in terms of flooding.

For the sake of Louisiana, let’s all pray that it stays lopsided and hope that wind shear rips the rest apart. That south side means business!
