NWS Tracking Map for Tropical Storm BarryRight on cue, the 2007 hurricane season kicked off with today with the second named storm, “Barry.” Barry is a tropical stormed that has formed out in the Gulf and is tracking north north-east. He’s pushing much needed rain into the area, and it’s a very cool 68 degrees.

The National Weather Service predicts that Barry will get caught up in some shear and carried over cooler water, so they don’t expect any real strengthening. But, it doesn’t bode well that we’ve already had one named storm even before the season officially started, and now…right on the first day, we’re off to a running start.
