Tropical Storm Barry has weakened a little more, to a maximum sustained wind speed of 50 miles per hour. The storm is slowly moving north-northwest at eight miles per hour.

"A turn toward the north is expected on Sunday, and this general motion should continue through Monday," said Senior Hurricane Specialist Daniel Brown.  "On the forecast track, the center of Barry will move across central Louisiana tonight, through northern Louisiana on Sunday, and over Arkansas Sunday night and Monday.

"Additional weakening is expected as the center moves farther inland, and Barry is forecast to weaken to a depression on Sunday."

Barry is still dragging much of its tropical rains behind it, including some cells of sever thunderstorms and potential tornadoes.
