National Weather Service issues statements on Tropic Storm Cindy effects.

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT:
Tropical Storm Cindy to impact Middle Tennessee today through
Friday night.

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.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK:

DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy are expected to produce
significant rainfall amounts across Middle Tennessee beginning
today. Flooding impacts today and tonight will be minimal, and
restricted mainly to ponding of water on roads during heavy
downpours. In addition, there is a marginal risk of severe storms
across the entire mid state, with damaging straight line winds the
primary threat.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Rainfall amounts will intensify on Friday and Friday night as the
storm center moves directly across Middle Tennessee. Two day
rainfall amounts will average 2 to 4 inches, with most of this
occurring Friday and Friday evening. There is also a marginal or
slight risk of severe storms, with damaging straight line winds
once again the primary threat. However, it is important to
remember that tropical systems are known to produce weak, short-
lived tornadoes.
