With bath water temps in the Gulf, this tropical cyclone will develop fast.  Likely becoming Tropical Cyclone Barry later today.

The cyclone will be a slow mover, battering Louisiana with wind and rain for over 24 hours.  There's huge concern for New Orleans.  The city is in a bowl, protected by pumps and levees.  If they give out, New Orleans will flood.
