Cold front to bring more storms late Friday

Cold front to bring more storms late Friday

We can expect showers and thunderstorms Saturday morning, but the weather service says it should become sunny later in the day as highs approach the mid 80s.

Remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy, now officially a Tropical Depression, are making their way through Tennessee, and the National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch that includes counties in southern and eastern Middle Tennessee.

The forecast is for 1.5 to 3 inches (40-80 millimeters) across the state with downpours starting after midnight Thursday and continuing until the cold front from the northwest pushes the moisture out early Saturday, she said. But meteorologists said it's hard to predict exactly what areas might be hit by repeated bands of heavy rain or how much will accumulate.

The marginal risk of a storm becoming severe includes the possibility of isolated weak tornadoes.

Forecasters warn the possibility of tornadoes and flooding rains will continue as the storm moves through the Southeast. Wth a rising tide, strong southerly winds from Tropical Depression Cindy lash the lakefront Thursday, June 22, 2017 in Mandeville, La.

Liverpool FC Transfer Rumors: Kylian Mbappe, Naby Keita
According to Melissa Reddy, Liverpool will need to top the £55 million Manchester City paid for Kevin De Bruyne two summers ago. The resolve of both the Bundesliga outfit and Liverpool will be tested over Keita in what could become an exhausting exercise.

The weather Friday was arriving on the anniversary of torrential rains and flooding that left 23 people dead in West Virginia a year ago.

The West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management held briefings for emergency managers statewide Thursday, with another scheduled Friday morning, spokesman Lawrence Messina said. Widespread severe weather is not expected. Early Friday, high winds also peeled off part of the roof from a high school near South Bend, leaving 10 classrooms damaged. In Memphis, crews worked Thursday to clear storm drains to help prevent street flooding.

Colbert County EMA Director Mike Melton agreed, saying Cindy has displayed a history of altering forecasts.

Even Indiana in the Midwest felt the impact of Cindy, which sprang Tuesday from the Gulf of Mexico as a tropical storm before roughing up the Deep South and making landfall Thursday.
