Tropical storm Barry heads for coast of Mexico
Wednesday, June 19, 2013, 4:15 PM -
Tropical storm Barry has formed in the Gulf of Mexico, becoming the second-named storm of the 2013 Atlantic season.
Barry is expected to make landfall Thursday morning, bringing 75-130 mm of rain across portions of Guatemala, the Yucatan Peninsula and southern Mexico.
Maximum amounts of 250 mm are possible in some places, raising the threat of flash flooding and mudslides.
Tropical storm strength winds are also forecast within the warning area.
The storm follows Andrea, which prompted flood watches along the U.S. east coast and brought heavy rain to the Maritimes earlier this month.
