|Tropical Storm Barry||Winds: 40 kt|
|Pressure: 1005 mbar|
|Advisory 14 / 04:00 AM CDT Sun Jul 14 2019|
Barry continues to have the appearance of an inland tropical cyclone with no central convection. Deep convection is primarily located still over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico with a small band reaching north into southwestern Mississippi as of the past few hours. The center is currently located near Ft. Polk/Peason Ridge where a surface station (KAQV) is reporting a pressure of 1005 hPa. An ASCAT-C pass from 0246z shows winds of at least 40kt still produced over the Gulf. With the storm weakening as it moves inland, the initial intensity has been lowered to this value as well.
Barry continues to track generally north-northwestward over Louisiana. This motion should shift to the north for the next two days or so as it rounds a ridge over the US Southeast and gets picked up by the mid-latitude westerlies. During this time, the storm will become a remnant low. As Barry begins to turn east, around day 3, the low will likely degenerate into an open trough.
