The latest update on what was Tropical Storm Cindy shows the storm continues to weaken as it tracks toward TN for Friday. The center should move just north of the Plateau, across southern KY. This puts us in a favorable position for tornadoes. The good news is that these tornadoes will be very isolated and very weak in nature. We won’t see incredible amounts of damage, by any means. We will have more rain and storms and some of the storms could produce strong straight-line winds. Overall, we’re very fortunate this system isn’t any stronger and we’re very fortunate that a cold front is kicking it on out of here, substantially reducing the flooding threat.
I’ll be watching throughout the evening and especially on Friday. A tornado watch will likely be issued at some point on Friday. I’ll keep you posted!
