Tropical Depression Two now Tropical Storm Barry

As expected, Tropical Depression Two was recently upgraded to Tropical Storm Barry. It was natural to intensify as it passed through the Bay of Campeche prior to taking aim at Mexico City. The storm is expected to be centered over Veracruz with sustained wind speeds reaching 45 MPH and wind gusts of 65 MPH. This storm will bring along with it storm surge and flooding to the west coast of Mexico. In less than 12 hours while being on shore, the storm is expected to weaken, and by the time it reaches Mexico City, it should be downgraded to a tropical depression once again. With no more waters feeding warm moisture up through the tropical storm, along with wind sheer expected when it is over land, the storm is expected to dissipate.
