Remnant Moisture from Cindy Bringing Heavy Rain and Possible Flooding

Post Tropical Storm Cindy is interacting with a frontal system to produce an area of heavy rain that could cause flooding. The front will move through the Middle-Atlantic states Saturday morning and offshore in the afternoon. However, the southern portions of the front will linger from the Southeast into Texas where rainy weather may persist through the day. Out west, the heat continues. Read More >

The NWC conducts operational, development, and field support functions. The NWC operationally supports and delivers science-based, integrated, consistent, timely, reliable and accurate water resources monitoring, prediction and diagnostic information to the Nation. It operates and maintains numerical water resources analysis and forecast modeling and data assimilation systems in collaboration with National Weather Service (NWS) National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), 13 regional NWS River Forecast Centers, Federal water partners, academia and stakeholders. NWC development functions focus on advancing the maturity and transitioning to field operations applied research (R2O) from within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), partner agencies, and academia, as well as supporting and improving core NWC operational capacity. The NWC coordinates, facilitates and integrates development activities across NWS River Forecast Centers. The NWC provide support services to regional and local field offices and others. In large scale and severe events, the NWC coordinates and communicates with field offices to ensure a common operating picture for all of the offices to work from, assists with media inquiries to provide a national perspective, provides maps and briefing materials, provides safety and awareness information, and prepares and delivers ad hoc data and related support services.
