...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Remnants from Tropical Storm Cindy have begun to push into the southern part of
the service area (Middle Tennessee), and will continue to do so throughout today
and tonight.  This moisture will interact with a cold front sagging southward
toward the area, and is forecast to produce widespread showers and thunderstorms
late tonight and tomorrow north of the Ohio River.  While the Cindy remnants
move eastward but south of the Ohio River.  Dry weather will follow this system
for several days.

...FLOOD POTENTIAL DISCUSSION...
New flooding from the upcoming tropical system is likely to occur in the basin,
though it is a bit early to pinpoint specifically where in the basin.  Numerous
points are already forecast to reach near flood stage, and could likely reach
flood stage is just a little more rain occurs than was forecast.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall was scattered and mainly under a quarter inch in the central part of
the service area.  Also, a quarter inch or less had also pushed into the
southern basin just prior to 8am EDT.

...48-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall amounts over three inches are forecast in much of the southwest basin
through daybreak Saturday.  A large area of an inch or more if forecast over the
southeastern three quarters of the basin.  Only light amounts are forecast for
the northwestern part of the service area.
