In global weather news it is looking extremely unlikely that we will see tropical storm Barry forming in the Gulf of Mexico in the next day or so. Looking likely to make landfall either on the Louisiana or Texas. There is a slight chance that it becomes a hurricane. At this stage it shouldn’t have any impact on the UK weather.
