... Tropical Storm Cindy to impact middle Tennessee today through
Tropical Storm Cindy has made landfall on the Gulf Coast this
morning. Although it will quickly weaken as it moves further
inland, its remnants will still have a significant impact on the
weather across middle Tennessee today through Friday night.
As the storm moves into the lower Mississippi Valley tonight and
then across middle Tennessee late Friday and Friday evening, look
for widespread showers and thunderstorms to spread across the
region. The prolonged exposure to copious tropical moisture will
contribute to significant rainfall amounts and possible flash
flooding, especially Friday and Friday night.
In addition to the heavy rainfall potential and flooding threat,
there is a marginal risk of severe storms across all of middle
Tennessee today and tonight, and a marginal or slight risk of
severe storms Friday and Friday night. The primary threat
continues to be damaging straight line winds, but tropical systems
are also known to spawn weak, short-lived tornadoes.
You are urged to stay tuned to follow-up forecasts from the
National Weather Service or a reliable media source for the latest
information as this weather system evolves.
