Tropical storm Barry will get drawn northward on Friday into the Louisiana coast Saturday morning as a minimal hurricane or strong tropical storm.

Heavy rain with flooding will be the main feature with this storm as it leaves the Coastal Bend untouched.

The broad counterclockwise circulation of Tropical Storm Barry just 90 miles from the Louisiana coast is giving us dry light northerly winds. This will result in only a few showers on Friday but lots of blistering heat the next several days as the storm moves slowly northward.

Tonight will be mainly clear and quiet due to light winds and a low of 76.Friday expect only isolated T-showers very light winds with variable sunshine and a baking hot high of 98.

Friday night will be mainly clear and tranquil with a low of 75.Saturday will be sunny dry and blazing hot with light winds again and a high of 99.Stay cool
