The main impact, forecasted for days, is still the scattered heavy rains and potential for flooding across the South and Southeast US. Cindy is sending most of its moisture off to the storm center east. That's sending the moisture into a stalled cold front which will help squeeze out additional moisture.

"HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area later today and spread westward within the warning area through Wednesday. Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area on Wednesday.

RAINFALL: Cindy is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches can be expected farther west across southwest Louisiana into southeast Texas through Thursday.

STORM SURGE: Inundation of 1 to 3 feet above ground level is possible along the coast in portions of the Tropical Storm Warning area.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two is possible this afternoon and tonight from south-central Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle."

I would also add to the NHC hazards quote above that prolonged soaking rains with any wind may bring down a few trees here or there / scattered here or there power outages in the South.

Was a matter of time. And for reference. The GFS saw it first almost 2 weeks ago!


From June 14th

Latest Canadian hits Florida and comes up to Northeast with soaking wind swept rains.
Last night's Euro hits Texas.
Latest GFS lost the storm. What else is new in its 4-7 day range? Lol. I think GFS does better 10 days out than 5.

Heavier rain bands about to come on shore soon.

See Cindy spinning? The center should move NW.

Our local (Houston) news said the storm 'jogged' overnight so it's aiming towards Texas and not central Louisiana.


Tropical storm watch now includes Harris, Galveston counties
