Tropical Depression Barry likely to form later today.
May become Hurricane...
I am getting the warning out early...
Unfortunately it looks like it will likely be a big rainmaker in an area that doesn’t need more rain.
Very few people shopping this morning...
The skies are clouding up but not raining. It gives folks in South Louisiana some respite from the heat.
Shrimping areas off louisiana have been damaged by too much fresh water this Spring...
Joe Bastardi said yesterday, something about this weekend starting the season off.....
It’s looking like we have a new foe named Barry.

Didn’t see you getting a PING.
Barry is turning out to be not a good a name.
Sure hate it for those in Louisiana, but thankful it is going further west. We sure don’t need it in the Florida Panhandle because we’re still recovering from Hurricane Michael. There are still parts of the area that look like a war zone.
Barry from the swamp making more swamp...leaving one more city under water...
I could go on.
All Trump’s fault. This is the Great Depression, global warming coming back for revenge.
Thanks. Watching carefully. I think there are multiple threads already. Will post the usual storm thread when the bugger gets a bit more organized and/or warnings issued.
It’s close to the coast. I doubt if it has time to strengthen into a major hurricane but stranger things have happened. Last year Michael strengthened rapidly but it had more time and was farther from the shore than this is.
Praying it doesn’t strengthen much.
Thanks for the post!
Nothing to see here right guys?
Women, minorities, LGBQT hardest hit.
Both of these factors have prevented this from forming at leat a tropical depression.
On the bad side, New Orleans flooded today from rains, and there is talk the Mississippi River is only 4 feet from topping the the levees. CBSNEWS said this was in the 9th Ward area.
