It's not over for portions of Central America such as Honduras and Belize that are being affected by Tropical Depression Two's heavy flooding rainfall. While the depression has weakened since landfall, its relatively slow movement is helping produce all these heavy rainfall over the same areas and total rainfall amounts may exceed 10 inches for Belize, Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala and Southern Mexico. With winds near 30 MPH, there is the potential for some re-intensification once it emerges into the southern Bay Of Campeche but with that said, it's only a 24-hour window of opportunity which is decent but with the terrain that may take its toll on the system, it's not likely that we will see 'Barry' before a final landfall in southern Mexico Thursday however there remains the potential. Otherwise the tropics remain fairly quiet and I'll have an update tomorrow.
