T.S. Barry A Bust

Tropical Storm Barry, the second named storm of the year, weakened to a "weather maker" without tropical characteristics Saturday.
Barry made landfall in the Tampa Bay area around 10 a.m. according to Daniel Brown, a meteorologist at the National Hurricane Center.

"The landfall in a case like this is kind of insignificant," Brown said.

Brown said some showers and thunderstorms could redevelop across the central and southern Florida peninsula and that there could be a few isolated tornadoes as the storm moves northward.

The storm's winds were forecast to weaken further as it moves north, but it is expected to bring rain all along the Atlantic seaboard, reaching South Carolina by Sunday morning and New England by Monday.
'Nuff said.
