|Post-tropical Cyclone Barry||Winds: 20 kt|
|Pressure: 1010 mbar|
|Advisory 20 / 04:00 PM CDT Mon Jul 15 2019|
Analyses from the Storm Prediction Center show that the low-level moisture transport parameter has fallen below 10 on the western side of Barry's circulation, suggesting that the dry air layer aloft the center of Barry is transitioning to a more deep-layer profile. GFS cyclone phase analyses further indicate that Barry is no longer a deep-layer warm core system, and upper-level characteristics have transitioned to a cold-core thermal profile. There is some convection with modest 25 kft echo tops, but these are sparse and disorganized. On this basis, Barry has been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone. The intensity remains at 20 kt based on a wide swath of 18-22 kt surface observations along the Mississippi River. The remnants of Barry should open up into a trough sometime tomorrow as they track north-northeast.
