ABOUT 100 MILES...165 KM...ENE OF JACKSON/J. CARROLL KENTUCKY.
ABOUT 25 MILES...40 KM...WNW OF BECKLEY MEMORIAL WEST VIRGINIA.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...20 MPH...30 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...ENE OR 75 DEGREES AT 35 MPH...56 KM/H

FOR INFORMATION SPECIFIC TO YOUR AREA...INCLUDING POSSIBLE WATCHES

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
AT 1100 PM EDT...0300 UTC...THE CENTER OF CINDY WAS LOCATED NEAR
LATITUDE 38.0 NORTH...AND LONGITUDE 81.5 WEST. UNDER INCREASING
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR...CINDY HAS LOST TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND
IS CONSIDERED A POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE.  SURFACE OBSERVATIONS
INDICATE THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER OF CINDY REMAINS INTACT AS IT
ACCELERATES EAST ACROSS EASTERN KENTUCKY. AN AREA OF HEAVY
RAINFALL WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS IS AFFECTING THE AREAS NORTH
AND EAST OF THE LOW CENTER FROM EASTERN KENTUCKY TO WESTERN
PENNSYLVANIA INCLUDING SOUTHERN OHIO AND WEST VIRGINIA. 
MEANWHILE...A COLD FRONT FROM THE MID-SECTION OF THE COUNTRY IS
QUICKLY APPROACHING THE CYCLONE FROM THE WEST.  POST-TROPICAL
CYCLONE CINDY IS EXPECTED TO BECOME EXTRATROPICAL OVERNIGHT 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 MOVING ACROSS THE UPPER TENNESSEE AND UPPER
OHIO VALLEYS FOLLOWED BY THE CENTRAL APPALACHIANS AND MID-ATLANTIC
STATES...BEFORE RAPIDLY MOVING OFF THE EAST COAST ON SATURDAY.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 20 MPH...30 KM/H...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS.

MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 1004 MB...29.65 INCHES.


HAZARDS
-------
RAINFALL...POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE CINDY IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE AN
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.
