Forecasters say the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy could cause flooding in the Tri-State.

The storm made landfall in Louisiana Thursday morning and is expected to move north and east across the U.S.

 

The National Weather Service says heavy rain will be the primary storm-related hazard in the Evansville area through Friday.

Forecasters say moisture from Cindy will combine with an approaching cold front, creating the flooding potential.

Total rainfall amounts should average 2 to 4 inches across western Kentucky, with 1 to 3 inches to the north and west.

Forecasters say storm chances include a marginal risk of severe storms, with an isolated weak tornado possible during the maximum heating of the day.

Sunny, drier air is forecast for the Tri-State over the weekend, with highs in the low 80’s.
