The second named Tropical Storm of the 2013 Atlantic season, Barry, brought drenching rains to parts of Mexico and other countries in Central America.

The National Hurricane Center first declared the system a Tropical Depression on June 17th. However, it did not officially become upgraded to a Tropical Storm until two days later.

The storm did not have too much time to strengthen further as it made landfall just to the north of Veracruz, Mexico. Heavy rain from the storm affected residents of Mexico, Honduras and other countries during and after landfall, also causing mudslides in the process. Classes at schools in the Veracruz area were also canceled due to the storm.
