Tropical Depression Cindy Discussion Number 12
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL032017
1000 AM CDT Thu Jun 22 2017

The circulation of Cindy is already well inland and weakening. The initial intensity has been lowered to 30 kt, although some areas could still observe tropical-storm-force winds in gusts associated with heavy squalls. Additional weakening is forecast, and Cindy will degenerate into a remnant low tomorrow. Thereafter, the cyclone should become absorbed into a frontal zone over the eastern United States.

Cindy is moving toward the north or 010 degrees at 11 knots. The cyclone should gradually turn toward the northeast and east-northeast as it becomes embedded within the prevailing mid-level westerly flow over the next couple of days.

Although Cindy is a tropical depression, it will continue to produce heavy rainfall over portions of the northern Gulf Coast and the southeastern and eastern United States, along with the potential for life-threatening flash flooding in some locations. Future information on this system can be found in Public Advisories issued by the Weather Prediction Center beginning at 4 PM CDT, under AWIPS header TCPAT3, WMO header WTNT33 KWNH, and on the web at http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov.
