The National Hurricane Center will no longer issue advisories on Barry. The storm made landfall in Louisiana around mid day Saturday. Barry weakened after landfall but held on to tropical storm status for another 24 hours dumping lots of rain over Louisiana and Mississippi. There are rainfall estimates of well over 10 inches of rain south of Alexandria. Tropical downpours produced 6 to 8 inches of rain over part of Adams County and in the Pine Belt in Mississippi. Rainfall totals averaged around 2 to 4 inches in the metro and about 5 inches in the Vicksburg area.

Once the remnants of Barry pull away to our north into the Tennessee River valley by today and Wednesday, we will return to a more normal summer weather pattern.
