NWS Station Update:
Make sure to stay up to date with all the developments of Cindy with the Rutherford Source @HappyHillerWEATHER radar. Here is the latest from the National Weather Service on Hurricane Cindy’s affect on Tennessee.
…Tropical depression Cindy is expected to spread heavy rain and embedded
severe weather across the Deep South followed by the eastern U.S. through
After making landfall early this morning, tropical storm Cindy has slowly
weakened into a tropical depression as it moves further inland near the
Louisiana-Texas border. Heavy tropical downpours will continue to
accompany the circulation as it tracks northeastward across Arkansas
tonight and into the Tennessee Valley on Friday. Meanwhile, a fast-moving
cold front currently moving across the upper Midwest and the central
Plains will approach and begin to interact with the remnant circulation of
Cindy on Friday. This interaction will increase the likelihood of heavy
rain as the remnants of Cindy continue to track across the the Tennessee
Valley Friday night and across the central Appalachians early on Saturday.
By Saturday morning, the center of Cindy could pass very near the
nation’s capital before rapidly moving off Cape Cod Saturday evening. A
period of heavy rain with some gusty winds can be expected near Cindy’s
track. A cold front will then quickly sweep across in the wake of Cindy,
ushering in cooler and drier air into the East Coast by Saturday evening.
