Tropical Storm Cindy Update

Tropical Storm Cindy has officially moved ashore at the Texas/Louisiana border with max sustained winds of 40mph. Periods of light to moderate rain with some embedded heavier showers can be expected through the morning as Cindy lifts northward.

Rainfall amounts of around 0.50-1.50 inch can be expected with some isolated areas, especially east and southeast of Houston picking up around 2-3 inches of rain. The latest observations suggest that rainfall rates under the heavier activity is averaging around 1-1.50 inches per hour which the area should handle without any significant issues.

The primary concern will be some localized ponding of water on area roadways should a heavier band move into the area later today. Water levels on Brays Bayou and Harris Gully are not expected to reach critical levels. The latest short-term guidance suggests that some scattered activity will remain possible through the late afternoon before decreasing during Thursday evening.

Additional information and updates will follow as warranted.
