The official statement from the National Weather Service :
436 AM CDT Thu Jun 22 2017 ...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. 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.
