As of Monday evening, Barry is now become a post-tropical cyclone and is moving through northern Arkansas. It is tracking towards the north-northeast near 15 mph. Max sustained winds are near 25 mph with some further weakening expected over the next 24 hours.
Barry will be taking a more of a northeast and eventually a turn to the east Tuesday into Wednesday bringing it into Northeast, including CNY come Wednesday.
An additional 2 to 5″ of rain are expected by Tuesday evening with isolated totals upwards of 8″ across parts of the South and Tennessee River Valley which could lead to some more flash flooding in these areas.
It now looks quite certain we will pick up some rain from the remnants of Barry Wednesday and possibly as early as late Tuesday night.
Tropical downpours will likely occur with any storms that develop Wednesday. This MAY lead to localized flash flooding, but no widespread flooding is expected at this time.
Thankfully, we are not expecting rain totals anywhere near the amount that Louisiana and Mississippi have received. The remnants of Barry has and will continue to weaken as it makes its way closer and eventually into CNY come Wednesday. Stay tuned for updates from NewsChannel 9 over the next couple of days.
