Remains Of Tropical Storm Cindy To Affect Our Area

Remains Of Tropical Storm Cindy To Affect Our Area

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Cindy is expected to weaken as it moves farther inland after coming ashore in southwestern Louisiana early Thursday.

"From noon all the way through Saturday morning we are going to have our personnel here tracking road closures, tracking flooded areas, and tracking any requests from counties in impacted zones", said Michael Dossett, director of Kentucky Emergency Management.

It will be sticky outside as the storms hang around.

Scattered showers and storms are likely through the afternoon and evening, rain chance at 70%.

In the early part of next week, expect cooler days, with temperatures not leaving the 70s, Martrich said.




The downpour is expected to spread across Arkansas and into parts of Tennessee and the Ohio Valley through Friday, with rainfall accumulations of 3 to 5 inches, the National Weather Service said. The storm has since been downgraded to a Tropical Depression.

"That's the good news", Edwards said during a briefing on the storm Thursday. There is also the threat of damaging wind gusts with severe cells closer to the path of the circulation center over Kentucky this evening, primarily a risk for far southern OH, with a slight risk of an isolated tornado. Tornado warnings were also issued for counties in Mississippi.

While its remnants could produce severe weather in the mountains, the main concern from Cindy will be heavy rain in the mountains and along the North Carolina-Tennessee state line.

A state of emergency was declared in Alabama and Louisiana Wednesday, and portions of the Gulf Coast are under tornado watches and flash flood watches and warnings associated with Cindy. Life-threatening flash flooding may occur. But the watch could be extended later today depending on where Cindy's rain bands set up. The chance of rain on Friday drops to 20 percent with a high near 85 degrees and wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. "As time goes on we're struggling to get through the after effects of what took place in the flood", John Wyatt, a pastor from Rainelle, told West Virginia Public Broadcasting. Given the amount of low level moisture across the region, rain may be heavy at times. "The highs will be in the lower to middle 80s".
