Barry has weakened to a tropical depression

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Barry made landfall in Louisiana Saturday and has weakened to a tropical depression today.

The National Hurricane Center says the storm arrived on land Saturday afternoon near Vermilion Bay.

Barry is expected to continue moving northward before turning more northeast late Monday into Tuesday. Even though Barry has weakened to a tropical depression, it could still bring heavy rain & flooding to Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, and parts of Missouri and Tennessee.

You will need to stay weather aware as we should get some rain and storms from the tail end of Barry this afternoon. Some storms could drop some quick heavy rain and contain strong, gusty winds.

If you're planning on hitting the road along the Gulf Coast during this busy travel season, be sure to check for weather related incidents or closures ahead of time.
