Tropical Storm Cindy in the Gulf
Weather Update – 10:45 p.m. Tuesday
Clear skies will gradually become partly to mostly cloudy with calm winds. An increase in the cloud cover will keep temperatures to the middle 60s at the coolest point of the night. Rain will stay to our south for now. Tomorrow will be a warm and mainly dry day, but Tropical Storm Cindy will approach the Texas and Louisiana coast. A few showers will be possible tomorrow afternoon and evening, especially south of I-40. Showers and thunderstorms will be more likely in West Tennessee on Thursday and Friday as the remnants of Cindy approach West Tennessee. Between Wednesday evening and Saturday morning, West Tennessee could see as much as 1-5″ of rain fall.
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Cindy. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from San Luis Pass, Texas to the Alabama-Florida border including Metropolitan New Orleans, and Lake Pontchartrain. A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within the next 24 to 36 hours. Interests elsewhere along the U.S. Gulf Coast from the central Texas coast to the western Florida Panhandle should monitor the progress of this system. If you planned to vacation there this week, stay weather aware!
