06/21 Ryan’s “TS Cindy” Wednesday Night Forecast

Tropical storm Cindy continues to churn as it slowly heads towards the TX/LA border, still sending waves of rain to South Mississippi. Most areas of the Gulf Coast have seen six or more inches of rain over the last 24 hours, and all local rivers are already at flood stage and will crest later tonight. If you live nearby any of these areas you’ve likely already taken precautions, but if not, be extra careful travelling and watch for areas of standing or rushing water.

Coastal flooding continues to be an issue as well. High tide is expected between 8:40 AM – 10:30 AM East to West across the coast, and totals will be two to four feet higher than normal due to Cindy. This likely means parts of Hwy 90 will be submerged, and care should be taken around local harbors and marinas.

Flash Flood watches are still in effect for the entire Gulf Coast, and additional warnings will likely be added as more rain bands move in overnight and tomorrow.

South Mississippi will remain under a “slight” risk of severe weather through the night and into tomorrow, so we still have a low risk for “spin-up” tornadoes and damaging winds as embedded meso-cyclones form.
