|Tropical Depression Barry||Winds: 25 kt|
|Pressure: 1009 mbar|
|Advisory 18 / 04:00 AM CDT Mon Jul 15 2019|
Barry has been producing unorganized convection within the vicinity of its low-level circulation center over Arkansas, enough to retain the classification of tropical cyclone. Surface observations continue to indicate that the minimum central pressure is maintained at 1009mb and perhaps it was a little lower in the past advisory, given a 07z 1008.5mb reading. The highest currently measured sustained wind is 20kt, but given the sampling and that the pressure has held constant, the intensity of Barry remains 25kt.
The forecast remains much the same for the depression. It will continue to track generally northward before turning to the northeast around a ridge over the southeast US. During this time it will continue to weak over land, degenerating into a remnant low later today before opening into a trough around 48h.
