LATITUDE 37.4 NORTH...AND LONGITUDE 86.1 WEST. UNDER INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR...CINDY HAS CONTINUED TO LOSE TROPICAL

LOW-LEVEL CENTER OF CINDY REMAINS INTACT AS IT ACCELERATES
EAST-NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS WESTERN KENTUCKY.  TO THE SOUTH OF
CINDY...THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO ORGANIZE INTO A SQUALL LINE
WHICH EXTENDS DOWN INTO LOUISIANA.  MEANWHILE...A COLD FRONT FROM
THE MID-SECTION OF THE COUNTRY IS QUICKLY APPROACHING THE EASTERN
U.S.  POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE CINDY IS EXPECTED TO BECOME
EXTRATROPICAL BY EARLY SATURDAY AS THE FAST-MOVING FRONT MERGES
WITH THE REMNANT CIRCULATION OVER THE MID-ATLANTIC REGION.  THE
PRIMARY THREAT WITH THIS STORM WILL BE MODERATE TO HEAVY
RAIN...WITH EMBEDDED SEVERE WEATHER...MOVING EAST OF THE LOWER AND
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO THE TENNESSEE AND OHIO VALLEYS FOLLOWED BY
THE CENTRAL APPALACHIANS THROUGH TONIGHT...BEFORE RAPIDLY MOVING

ADDITIONAL 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS OF
3 INCHES POSSIBLE...FROM EASTERN KENTUCKY EASTWARD INTO WEST
VIRGINIA THROUGH TONIGHT.  THESE RAINS WILL CONTINUE TO ENHANCE
THE FLASH FLOOD THREAT ACROSS THESE REGIONS.  THUNDERSTORMS THAT
FORM TO THE SOUTHWEST OF THE REMNANTS OF CINDY AND AHEAD OF THE
COLD FRONT COULD TRIGGER MORE FLOODING IN THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI
VALLEY TONIGHT.
