Tropical Storm Barry is gaining strength in the north central Gulf. We’re on the wet side of this storm. Barry’s tropical moisture plume will affect Alabama with increased tropical showers and storms through Sunday. I have new estimates on how much rain we could see. Barry’s tornado threat will probably stay west of us. I’ll show when Barry will exit our neighborhood, and when our forecast returns to normal. Plus, there is a brand new “X” on the map in the tropical Atlantic.
