The National Hurricane Center is tracking Tropical Storm Cindy over the northern Gulf of Mexico. The center of Cindy has made landfall over the southwest Louisiana border around 4 AM this morning. It will move northward and weaken into a tropical depression, then curve northward over Arkansas early Friday. This system will draw very moist air across the Tennessee Valley, resulting in numerous showers and thunderstorms from Thursday into early Saturday.
Moisture associated with Tropical Storm Cindy will bring multiple rounds of storms to the Tennessee Valley, continuing through Saturday. Very heavy rainfall from these storms could lead to flooding issues over the weekend. In addition to heavy rain, a few weak tornadoes might be possible on Friday, as a strong wind field tied to the system moves across the area. Please be weather aware this week and into the weekend, and follow our site for further updates, as to what we can expect in the the Tennessee Valley.
Heavy rainfall is forecast across the Tennessee Valley into early Saturday, as showers and thunderstorms associated with Tropical Storm Cindy affect the region. Total rainfall amounts through Saturday of around 2 inches will be common, with locally higher amounts possible. Resulting runoff may produce localized flash flooding.
