The 10 AM CDT advisory from NHC makes this an official Cat 1.  First landfalling hurricane of 2019.

I guess I wasn't watching this as closely as I thought- I didn't realize it was making landfall already, until I noticed the diffused looking circulation on shore on radar and satellite. The core of the storm is pretty dry, with most of the precip well off to the east on the right side of the storm. I was watching the bands further east earlier and just assumed the center of circulation was still well off shore.

The core must be in a fairly hostile environment, which, by looking at it, is amazing that it was able to reach hurricane status.

Those really disorganized systems usually get really lopsided usually on the east with precip. Current track is a tad further west than yesterday- now just west of Little Rock. The NAM has very little precip around Memphis. The euro has over 10 inches at Memphis with a never ending southerly component. One of those is wrong.

As is tradition, interesting weather is happening, so HTX radar is down. I swear it has 100% reliability on clear, sunny days. Getting some heavy tropical downpours right now. Looks like Barry is interacting with the stalled front.

A surprisingly strong gust front just passed through Lascassas.  My weather station recorded a maximum wind speed of 30 mph ---one of the highest speeds it has recorded this year.  We are still getting gusts close to 20 mph.
Hire the left-handed --- its fun to watch them write.

As learned last Sunday, all it takes is one tropical downpour over your area and you can have flash flood issues. I think this tropical moisture will cause some localized problems. I think to much emphasis is put on the amounts in certain areas which are simply not able to be predicted.

SO glad this system is staying away from Mt Juliet for the most part.

Serious band setting up near Tennessee River. Iím very curious how these totals play out. A few days ago that area was in a bullseye. Will those old predictions pan out?

Trying to predict which way this TD drifts is near impossible.  The heavy band is slowly working towards mid TN.  I would like a thunder storm rainy night to sleep to.

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.
