SAN ANGELO, Texas — Barry officially made landfall on the Louisiana coast over the weekend as a low-end Category 1 hurricane, the first hurricane of the Atlantic hurricane season.
The main concern continues to be rainfall, which will lead to isolated flash flooding. Numerous locations throughout the Deep South picked up on five to 10 inches of rain thus far. Additional rainfall totals of two to five inches are likely throughout the South over the next three days.
Back in West Texas, the story will remain the same as a hot and dry pattern takes hold. Plenty of sunshine can be expected over the next week or so, with temperatures holding steady in the upper 90s to low 100s.
This hot pattern is set to continue over the next two weeks, as the pattern remains locked in. If spending any time outside over the next few weeks, remember to take it easy and drink plenty of water.
