340 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

...Flash Flooding possible over portions of the Mid-South through
Friday evening...

.The remnants of Tropical Depression Cindy has pushed out of the
Mid-South. However, flash flooding may still be possible this
evening as a line of strong thunderstorms push into the Mid-South
ahead of an approaching cold front. Any additional rainfall from
these thunderstorms could quickly cause flash flooding due to the
recent heavy rainfall from Cindy.
