The National Hurricane Center (NHC) shows no active tropical cyclones…or tropical disturbances under investigation at this time.

The remnant low pressure system of former tropical cyclone Barry, remains over land in Mexico. The associated winds have dissipated, and aren’t a problem. On the other hand, rainfall continues, with precipitation accumulations of 3-5 inches…with maximum amounts up to 10 inches in parts of southern Mexico! It’s possible that these heavy rains will cause flash flooding and mudslides, especially in the mountainous areas. This satellite image shows the extensive clouds in the area being described.
