...Very heavy rain possible across the Tennessee Valley from the
remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy...

The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy are forecast to move towards the
Mid South and Tennessee Valley from the Texas/Louisiana coast late
this week. High amounts of moisture associated with this system will
produce widespread showers and thunderstorms across much of the
region. Numerical weather models are forecasting an average of two
to three inches of rain (higher in some spots) across the area into
Sunday. Flooding or Flash Flooding will be possible if the bulk of
the rain fell in a short time period. Rises in stream and river
levels/flow are also possible this weekend and early next week.

Exact timing, positioning, and how much rain will occur is uncertain
at this juncture. Antecedent soil moisture across the region are
trending somewhat drier than average - which may be able to absorb a
bout of heavy rain. Additional rainfall afterward will runoff and
could produce flooding. A Flood or Flash Flood Watch may be required
for parts of the Tennessee Valley if these trends continue.
