Overnight: partly cloudy, low in the mid 60s. Thursday: increasing clouds, more humid, high near 90,, wind south 11-17 m.p.h. Thursday night: chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms, low near 70. Friday: Flash Flood Watch, showers, chance of thunderstorms, wind southwest 10-20 m.p.h.
***FLASH FLOOD WATCH*** The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch that is in effect until late Friday night. Low level convergence and a strong flow of moist air associated with former Tropical Storm Cindy will interact with a cold front moving across Ohio on Friday. The lifting provided by those weather systems could produce locally heavy rainfall. A warm front will move across Ohio on Thursday and more humid air will start to flow over the state. Rising motion caused by the warm front and high clouds partly associated with Tropical Storm Cindy will cause an increase in cloud cover. Some isolated showers and thunderstorms could form by Thursday night. A low pressure system that will include the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy will move northeast on Friday while a cold front approaches Ohio from the west. Convergence into the low pressure system and lift generated by the cold front will produce showers and a chance for thunderstorms on Friday. ***Tropical Depression Cindy*** At 5:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday the center of Tropical Depression Cindy was located at latitude 31.9N and longitude 93.7W which put it about 45 miles south of Shreveport, Louisiana. Cindy was moving toward the north at 10 m.p.h. The maximum sustained wind was 20 m.p.h. and the minimum surface pressure was 999 mb. The Tropical Storm Warning for the portion of the coast from San Luis Pass, Texas to Morgan City, Louisiana has been discontinued.
