4WARN Weather Alert: Tropical Storm Cindy on Its Way

Tropical Storm Cindy is on its way to the Louisiana/Texas Gulf Coast.  After that, it’ll pay a visit to Middle Tennessee!  A 4WARN Weather Alert has been issued for our area for Friday because of Cindy’s expected impacts here.

Here’s in a nutshell what we can expect over the next couple of days…

Notice how huge the storm is.  The cloud mass extends 1,500 miles….from Cozumel, Mexico all the way northward to northern Ohio!

Rain is in bands with Cindy….with the heaviest now down in south Alabama and north Florida, rotating in our direction.

FUTURECAST for the overnight shows how the rain will develop over the Mid State.  Be ready for a rainy morning commute across much of the area.

We’ll likely transition from steady rain in the morning to patchy rain during the afternoon.  A little sunshine will be possible once that initial morning rain band pushes through.  That will allow many communities to climb into the lowermost 80s for highs.  Know that if we warm enough during the afternoon, any storms that develop could become severe.  The threat of that though is relatively low though — “Marginal” as classified by the Storm Prediction Center.

On Friday, more rain is expected plus a more significant threat for severe weather.  A 4WARN Weather Alert is in effect for Friday with that higher severe threat and an even better chance for some localized flooding.

I’ll share much more on that coming up in less than an hour, on Channel 4 News at 10pm.  Join us!
