The maps above show radar estimates of rainfall so far and these are estimates. It is entirely possible that some local areas could have higher amounts. So far the heaviest rains have been from the Florida Panhandle west to Southeast Louisiana where some 6 inch plus areas are beginning to show up. Tropical Storm Cindy is building on its reputation for being a heavy rain and flash flood producer and the rains as shown on the real time radar loops below will continue overnight.

At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cindy was

moving toward the northwest near 9 mph (15 km/h). A turn toward the

of Cindy will move inland over southeastern Texas or southwestern
Louisiana late tonight or early Thursday, then move near or over
extreme eastern Texas, western and northern Louisiana, and
southeastern Arkansas Thursday and Thursday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is expected before landfall, with
weakening expected thereafter.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure based on observations from
oil rigs near the center is 994 mb (29.36 inches).

RAINFALL: Cindy is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts up to 15 inches over
southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and
western portions of the Florida Panhandle through Thursday night.
This rainfall could cause life-threatening flash flooding in these
areas.

Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches with isolated maximum amounts of
7 inches can be expected farther west across western Louisiana and
eastern Texas through Thursday night. Rainfall should spread
northeastward across Arkansas and into portions of the Tennessee
and Ohio Valleys through Friday, with total rain accumulations of
