Tropical Storm Cindy weakens to tropical depression. Here's what to expect next

Expect partly cloudy skies by Saturday mid-day with drier and cooler weather returning for Sunday and the start of next week.

The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite looked at Tropical Depression Cindy in infrared light. "We have been and are being significantly impacted by effects of Cindy", the governor added.

The combination of tropical moisture streaming northward and an eastward moving cold front late this week into the weekend will enhance rainfall across much of the South and possibly into southern portions of the Midwest and mid-Atlantic.

Two parks south of Lafayette are closed because of high water over roads the parks.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings for most of the southern two-thirds of the state, with more than 3 inches of rain falling in places by midday Friday and minor flooding expected along some rivers. Even though Thursday is shaping up to be a lovely summer day in New Jersey, forecasters say Friday and early Saturday could be marred by cloudy skies, occasional showers and isolated thunderstorms.

Over the coming days, the cold front will push the remnants of the storm east and will help dump more rain over the Tennessee and MS valleys.

"I had heard Tropical Storm Cindy mentioned", Clewley said.

In Gulfport, Mississippi, Kathleen Bertucci said about 10 inches (250 millimeters) of rain water found its way into her business selling granite countertops.

Labeled a 1,000-year flood by the National Weather Service, the storm destroyed more than 2,100 homes statewide and damaged another 2,000.

A turn toward the northeast is expected.

Cindy or its remnants are forecast to move into Arkansas early Friday, then into Tennessee.

Emergency officials are monitoring the forecast for the greater Charleston area where heavy rain is expected, according to the Kanawha County Commission. Extremely high levels of this quantity will be present over the eastern United States on Friday and Saturday.

In Alabama, where Gov. Kay Ivey urged residents to stay alert for unsafe weather, two tornado warnings were issued in the Birmingham and Tuscaloosa areas.

As of the 10 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center, the center of circulation was located 165 miles northwest of the Louisiana Coast. The center of the storm is projected to make landfall sometime Thursday morning.

"We've seen three inches of rain overnight in portions of east of Harris County", Sanchez says. "Something to remember, though, if there are floods and heavy periods of rain on Thursday and Friday, those flood waters may continue rising for a day or more".

Authorities in Florida are urging people to stay off the beaches and out of the Gulf of Mexico until weather conditions brought by Tropical Storm Cindy improve.
