downrightnow.com is showing a likely service disruption that started around half an hour ago.  It seems to be the whole platform rather than individual accounts.

Euro is getting in to its “refuse to budge” mode taking Barry just west of the MS River Sunday and Sunday night. That should place much of Tennessee in a favorable position for copious amounts of tropical moisture. If that is where this ends up, there should be a decent sheer situation on the northeast flank- giving way to possible tornadoes albeit short lived. This actually could produce more tornadoes than we saw all spring.

WPC latest outlook shows a widespread 5-7 inch rain event across SW Tennessee.  With the banded nature of the storms, it is possible that some areas could locally exceed 7 inches.

Former LaVergne resident here that relocated to Florida 3 years ago. I HAVE to say thank you to everyone for covering this storm and your dedication to all things weather, not just local weather. The only equivalent I have found for this place is flhurricane.com, but it not nearly as active or personable. This forum will always be home to me.

I wish there was some way Tennessee could get the good rain out of this system without all the flooding that will inevitably happen farther south of us.  The last news I was watching on Barry last night they were concerned that the storm was sitting and going so slowly over the Gulf.  Let's hope it picks up speed once it landfalls rather than dragging slow, training rain bands over areas that are already flooded.

Recon picking up surface winds north of 60 mph now (still waiting to see if any of those readings are flagged though)

Will be interesting to see if Barry makes a run towards hurricane status today, but regardless the flood threat is of highest concern and will be no matter what strength Barry makes landfall.

They've actually been fortunate so far. The northern half of the storm has been almost totally devoid of convection until this morning. The heaviest rains have fallen over the open Gulf, not the coast.

At the 10 CDT update Barry is at 65mph and 998mb, only crawling along at 5mph.  I won't be surprised to see it reach hurricane strength today.

This is getting interesting for those of us in the western half of the state.  ::yum::

Euro doesn't look too bad for NOLA in terms of rainfall. Only 1-3" as they get "dry-slotted". Amounts of 12-20" are just to their west. Not sure how much impact the surge will have though. I bet there isn't much leeway for the river backing up with the ongoing seasonal flooding.

NOLA's whole issue is with the MS river being so high in July.  Literally any backing up of the MS Barry can create could create a dangerous situation in a hurry even if it it doesnt rain a drop there.
