The Nation's Weather for Friday, July 12, 2019

—————

NATIONAL SUMMARY

Drenching showers and thunderstorms will bring the risk of

flooding for a time in New England and the lower part of the

mid-Atlantic today. Less humid air is forecast to filter in

across the eastern Great Lakes and central Appalachians with

a return of sunshine. A mosaic of thunderstorms, mainly in

the afternoon, will dot the Southeast. However, a batch of

more intense rain and thunderstorms is forecast to wander

northward over Louisiana and the panhandles of Mississippi,

Alabama and Florida in association with Barry. The storm may

make landfall as a hurricane or strong tropical storm in

Louisiana later Friday night or Saturday morning. Barry will

cause significant flooding in the region with up to 2 feet

of rain possible. Storms will push across the Upper Midwest

and dot parts of the Rockies. Most other areas will be dry.
