Cindy to bring heavy rain, flooding potential to Tri-State

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Tropical Storm Cindy is not expected to move directly over the Tri-State, but the storm’s interaction with a cold front will bring considerable rainfall.

And it will arrive just in time for your morning commute Friday.

We have declared Friday a FOX19 NOW First Alert Weather Day.

A cold front approaching our area from the west will steal moisture from Cindy to our south before arriving.

This additional moisture will enhance the shower and thunderstorm activity and increase rain totals beyond normal.

The heaviest rain will hit around the start of the morning rush Friday.

Widespread downpours look likely for the rest of the morning.

Anywhere from 1-3 inches is expected. The average will be 2, according to current weather models.

Flash flooding will be a concern late morning through the afternoon.

We will start to dry out Friday night, with all rain ceasing by midnight.
