Barry bringing flooding rains to the Mid-South

Weather

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com)- So, the good news is, Barry is now a depression and soon to be the remnants of a Hurricane.

It’s also tracking further west which is shifting the rainfall projections and forecasted rainfall totals have dropped for a lot of the Mid-South. The greatest risk for heavy rainfall remains in NE Ark with about 2-2.5” expected. 

The entire area does remain under a Flash Flood watch until Tuesday evening so continue to follow the phrase “Turn Around, Don’t Drown.”

The other good news is the threat for severe weather has lessened as well. We are now all under a Marginal Risk, 1 out of 5, with spin up tornados the concern. 

Expect more heavy rainfall in waves tomorrow into Wednesday. Once it moves out, we dry up but also get nice and steamy as temperatures climb. We’re tracking it all for you. 

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com)- Here is a look at our forecast. Our main focus at this time is what is left over from Barry.

Parts of the Mid-South have seen over two inches of rain and an additional 2-5 inches is possible over the next two days. Flooding will be the primary hazard although tornadoes are a concern as well.

Weak and brief tornadoes are not uncommon in tropical systems. It appears at this time the system will finally pull away from the region Wednesday.

Very hot weather and a return to Summer will quickly follow Thursday and into next weekend. Remain weather aware in the coming days.
