Zoomed in / HD Satellite Imagery of #TropicalStormBarry as it starts to form an inner core (at least that is how it appears)... will be interesting to see if it does develop a full inner core which could mean Barry is becoming a hurricane. #StaySafe / Monitor local weather!
4:00AM CDT JULY 13, 2019 UPDATE ON #TROPICALSTORMBARRY.... From the National Weather Service / Hurricane Center
I know that #HurricaneBarry / #HurricaneBarry2019 is trending... but... it never really quite made it to a Hurricane.

Tropical Storm / Tropical Mess, Yes. Maybe a few gusts over 74mph... but that said, everything we have seen indicates less than hurricane strength. Good news.
The National Hurricane Center did upgrade Barry to a Hurricane briefly... however it is officially back down to #TropicalStormBarry

Now the water comes... downgrading doesn’t = safe

The water potential still exists
The official upgrade to #HurricaneBarry came at 10AM CDT from measures winds in a few locations that went over the 74mph threshold. However, I give props to the Hurricane Center for being clear that the distinction between Tropical Storm & Hurricane for THIS storm, means little.
We can see on NEXRAD that wind velocities are right at the cusp of hurricane force, so it’s not a bad call to give Barry the increase.

The reality is there is little difference between Tropical Storm winds of 72 mph, and hurricane winds of 75 mph.

Water/StormSurge/rain= threat
THIS satellite 🛰 view tells the real story...

LOOK 👀 at the massive structure of those storm clouds moving into Louisiana!

I will try to get a more specific measurement, but they are likely 65-70,000 feet tall.

That means horrific weather underneath. But let’s see if true.
I was able to grab a slice of part of the storm clouds at a measurement of 60,000 feet... not sure ground radar will be able to measure the height of this storm 100%... but we now know the clouds are at LEAST 60K tall!
Although #TropicalStormBarry may have lost some of its punch in terms of overall winds, it certainly hasn't lost its punch with:
-Flash Flooding
-Severe Thunderstorms

Taking a closer look at #TropicalStormBarry at 6PM EDT, we still see serious convective potential moving into southern Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama... severe weather is occurring along with flooding, so please monitor local weather services / news for warnings.
Zoomed out view of the entire Gulf of Mexico water vapor view shows incredible tropical moisture spanning nearly the entire Gulf, but also well to the NE of #TropicalStormBarry into MS, TN, NC, AL, SC & LA... strange storm structure is throwing rain in odd places
