Tropical Storm Cindy has developed in the Gulf of Mexico, packing 45 mph winds and is barely moving. It will start to push north-northwest tomorrow, and make a landfall somewhere between Texas and Louisiana on Thursday.
The storm is expected to remain a tropical storm and not increase to a hurricane. As it makes landfall on Thursday we'll see rain increase across the southeast as a southerly flow off the gulf develops. Rain moves in for the Carolinas and Georgia Thursday evening into the overnight, but how heavy is still in question.
Skies clear up during the day Friday, and we should see a lull in the rain until Sunday when a front moves in.
