From the radar this morning it looks like the whole state of Mississippi is seeing heavy rain.  I'm glad that New Orleans didn't take as much of a hit as some were expecting, but remain very concerned about the flood stage of the Mississippi river in the coming days and weeks.  It will take time for all the rainfall to make its way through the tributaries and into the river, and it won't take much of a rise to radically impact riverside communities that have already seen flooding almost all year.  Let's all hope that the potential for river flooding stays unmet just like the potential impact on New Orleans.
major flooding going now in southern. Central Louisiana ...
Come on severe wx season...

From warning text in LA, north of the Lake Charles area:

ďAt 1011 AM CDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
  heavy rain across the warned area. 6 to 12 inches of rain have
  fallen with isolated spots to 17 inches.Ē

Thatís just gross. Itís pretty much rainfall on the order of the 2010 floods here.

I'm reading some of the TWC coverage on Barry and they're reporting that an area near Cookeville received 6.09 inches already.  It looks like any flooding issues will be localized for most of Tennessee but as others on the board have been saying the people that do get caught by a heavy or training rain band will really get lots of water in a short period of time.

There is an area in Arkansas that received 16 inches of rain last night. It looks like the train is trying to swing into west Tennessee.

I saw one quick shower from Barry, which is fine be me. We need to dry out as I'm tired of mowing my yard every 4 days.

It was absolutely dumping in Cookeville Sunday night.  I haven't seen rain like that in a long time.

On a side note, we were down in NW Florida last week and had minimal impacts from Barry until Thursday/Friday.  We ended up coming back early since Friday was going to be a wash.  It was neat seeing the sea go from fairly calm to down right gnarly in a 24-HR period.  Thursday we saw some of the biggest waves I've ever seen in the Gulf - 5-8' swells.
