At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Barry
was located by NOAA Doppler radars and surface observations near
latitude 32.8 North, longitude 93.6 West. The depression is moving
toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h) and this general motion is
forecast tonight through Monday morning. A motion toward the
north-northeast and northeast is expected Monday afternoon into
Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Barry will move across
