...Tropical Remnants To Bring Heavy Rains Later This Week...

Tropical Storm Cindy is forecast to move ashore on the Gulf
coast Thursday morning, then eject toward and reach into the
Tennessee valley by Friday. As this occurs, a cold front will
drop down from the north and interact with the tropical moisture
upon its passage Friday night.

Cindy`s remnants will bring rain chances as early as Thursday,
before spiking those chances Friday and Friday night as the storm
itself ejects across the Tennessee valley and the aforementioned
cold front makes its passage. At this time, rainfall amounts over
two inches appear most likely along and south of the Ohio River,
with perhaps rainfall amounts of 3 to 4 inches possible further
south and east, toward the Tennessee border.

The heavy rainfall is expected to cause rises on area creeks and
small rivers, particularly where flash flooding occurred over the
past weekend. Stay tuned for later updates to these projected
potential rainfall amounts, and additional specific details
concerning this heavy rain event.
