...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...
Remnants from Tropical Storm Cindy will lift from the Gulf into the Ohio Valley
by Friday and bring heavy rainfall to the southern half of the Ohio for the end
of the work week.  Several inches of rain are expected in some locations.
Pinpointing these locations is not possible at this time.

...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 where in the basin.  The southern half of
the basin has the greatest potential.  Some minor flooding is still lingering in
the west.

...24-HR OBSERVED PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall was a half inch or less in the northwestern portion of the basin and a
quarter inch or less in the northern and northeastern basin parts of the service
area.

...72-HR FORECAST PRECIPITATION USED IN TODAY`S RIVER FORECASTS...
Rainfall amounts over three inches are forecast in parts of Tennessee through
daybreak on Saturday as the leading edge of Cindy pushes into the southern half
of the basin.  At least one inch of rain is forecast over the entire southern
half of the service area.

...RIVER BASINS IN FLOOD...
