Barry's remnants headed into MD

Posted at 10:33 AM, Jul 16, 2019

High, dangerous heat is the big story this week and the other big story is Barry.

Barry made landfall as a Category 1 Hurricane with 75 mph winds on Saturday, July 13 at 1 p.m. CDT in Intracoastal City, LA. Barry moved inland, weakened to a Tropical Storm, Tropical Depression and now is Post-Tropical.

With that said, the remnants of Barry will move into the Ohio Valley on Wednesday. With plenty of heat and humidity ahead of it, the chance for showers and storms will increase during the afternoon and evening into Thursday. Some storms may be strong to severe. The biggest threat will be damaging gusty winds and very heavy rain which will lead to flash flooding.

Scattered showers/thunderstorms are possible again on Thursday and should occur earlier in the day compared to today or tomorrow, as the trough will be overhead for at least the beginning of Thursday.

Stay tuned!
