Developing Tropical Storm Barry 2019

Tropical Storm Barry Forming Tonight

Currently, the soon to be second name storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season is slowly beginning to organize in the northern Gulf of Mexico tonight. Tropical Storm Barry is expected to be named on Thursday, with the potential to become a hurricane threat to the Louisiana coastline over this upcoming weekend.

 

Weather computer models have been going back and forth the last several days, but on Wednesday they started to become in better agreement on an Eastern Texas to western Mississippi potential landfall area. Louisiana Gulf Coast as of tonight looks to be at the greatest risk according to the National Hurricane Center.

Substantial Flooding Threat For Gulf Coast This Weekend

 

However, this looks to be a significant flooding risk over a large portion of the Northern Gulf-coast. New Orleans already is experiencing flooding conditions due to heavy rainfall over the last 24 hours, and could experience several days of additional rainfall from the developing tropical system.

Hurricane Chasing Very Possible

 I'm currently monitoring for potential hurricane chase intercept  in Louisiana this weekend, but Barry could be making landfall in a very problematic area to cover storms without the risk of getting caught in floodwaters. I'll be updating over the next few days with videos and pictures from the road. Be sure to keep up with me via Instagram and Twitter: @StormVisuals
