Tropical cyclone BARRY was the first tropical storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season to reach hurricane
force and affect the mainland. It made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane in Louisiana, USA, on July 13.
As the name suggests, BARRY was not the first tropical system in the Atlantic in the 2019 season. A tropical system was already registered east
of the Bahamas on 20 May. It was called ANDREA, but due to dry air advection and strong vertical wind shear, it weakened again on 21 May and
never reached mainland.
