Tropical Storm Barry made landfall earlier today near Veracruz, Mexico, and is losing strength and organization.  Barry is now a tropical depression and will soon be declassified as a tropical entity.

There's still a wave of moisture, heavily influenced by fast upper-level winds, cross over the island of Hispaniola.  It may provide additional moisture to the Bahamas and Cuba over the next day, and perhaps spread into the Florida Straits this weekend.  As long as upper-level winds are active, no rapid development will occur.

There are no other areas of immediate concern over the tropical Atlantic basin waters.
