MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - With sustained winds of 35mph, Barry was downgraded to a tropical depression Sunday evening. Although weaker, Barry is still posing a threat of flooding through the lower Mississippi Valley. It will continue to move north through northern Louisiana and into Arkansas. Here is last track forecast from the National Hurricane Center:
Rain was very hit-or-miss this weekend. A lot of you received very heavy downpours at times, accompanied by very gusty wind, but others of you barely saw a drop. Thus is the way tropical rain bands move.
We’re not completely done with the rain yet; showers are steady over western Alabama this evening. A few more downpours and storms are possible again on our Monday, and similar to today, they could be stronger with gusty winds and frequent lightning.
Behind Barry, a ridge of high pressure will start to build. Not only will rain chances decrease, but temperatures will start to soar. Some towns could be in the upper 90s by mid-week.
