...Remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy To Bring Heavy Rains...

Rainfall will begin to overspread the Heartland today, as Tropical
Storm Cindy makes landfall along the Louisiana and Texas Gulf
Coast. Her source moisture will be surging northward across the
Mississippi river valley, enabling our developing showers and
isolated thunderstorms to produce more efficient rainfall totals
with time.

Rainfall totals through today and tonight may reach or exceed an
inch across the area, mainly along and south of the Ohio river.
This rainfall will work toward saturating grounds for the most
potent burst of tropically sourced rains to come later Friday
afternoon and evening, as Cindy ejects herself across the
Tennessee valley.

Storm total average rainfall amounts of about 2 inches along and
nearer the Ohio river, are expected to reach into the 3 to 4 inch
range across parts of southern Kentucky, especially closest to the
Tennessee border, and east of the Lakes. Locally higher totals
will be possible where embedded thunderstorms enhance these
average totals, and that may lead to flooding problems, especially
in locations that are just beginning their recovery from the
heavy rains of this past weekend.

Stay tuned for additional statements and headlines regarding this
soon to occur heavy rainfall event. Be prepared to take quick and
decisive action should you encounter rising waters or flooding.
