Preliminary Report Summary of Hurricane Barry: July 10-17, 2019

Barry was unique in many ways, from where it originated to its complex structure. It was also slow to develop a defined storm center and once formed, it became detached from the mid-level circulation, making it difficult to initialize and forecast. The storm will be remembered for producing record-breaking tropical cyclone rainfall totals in Arkansas, knocking down power lines and trees, and its inability to live up to forecasted extreme precipitation totals in Louisiana. This document is a preliminary summary of the storm containing information on its development and tracking, precipitation forecasts and observed totals, and factors that limited Barry from becoming the extreme rainmaker (in Louisiana) many expected.
