NEW ORLEANS — The remnants of Barry are now moving over Ohio, but its effects here are well behind us.
Heat will be the weather topic for the rest of this week as high pressure nudges back over us from the east.
No tropical development is expected this week.
The National Weather Service released their post-Barry summary of rainfall totals and wind gusts for our area.
