...Remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy to Bring Heavy Rainfall...

Well in advance of the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy, moisture
from the Gulf of Mexico will increase from southwest to northeast
across Eastern Kentucky through Friday. Chances for showers will
generally increase from southwest to northeast as well, with any
thunderstorms dropping locally heavy rainfall across the area.

This will prime the area for flooding from Friday into
Saturday, when a round of more widespread heavy rain could fall
across eastern Kentucky, as the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy
pass across the region. Storm total rainfall will generally range
from 2 to 3 inches, with locally higher amounts possible.

Rainfall of this magnitude would cause flash flooding of creeks
and streams by Friday afternoon or Friday night. Some area rivers
would also rise to near flood stage during the weekend if heavy
rainfall materializes.

Uncertainty remains in the evolution and eventual track of this
system, which will ultimately affect rainfall from this system.
Monitor later forecasts or updates on the threat of flooding this
weekend by listening to NOAA Weather Radio or your local media or
