Flash flood watches were issued for much of Kentucky and West Virginia.

Sumner, Davidson and Williamson counties are not part of the tornado watch at this time.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy reached the Mid-Atlantic coast Saturday morning, after bringing torrential downpours to much of OH, especially the central and southern sections, all day Friday.

In addition to flooding, NWS Nashville staff alerted residents to the possibility of damaging straight-line winds and tropical tornadoes in a Facebook Live video Thursday afternoon.

The watch is also in effect for western Maryland, northern West Virginia, eastern OH along and south of Interstate 30. Areal average rainfall totals in this band could range from 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts. Anticipate that creeks, streams and drainage ditches will have fast-moving flows and also can be unsafe.

Temperatures stay in the 70s into early next week with more rain chances by Thursday.

Although more bad weather is headed to Cherokee, the National Weather Service said "change is on the way".

So as drenching storms arrive tonight, they will have the capability of swamping storm drains and overwhelming viaducts. Nolan McCabe, 10, of St. Louis, Missouri, was vacationing with his family on the Alabama coast when he was hit by a log washed in by a large wave. Areas along and north of the Interstate 20 corridor have received heavy rains within the last week with 1 to 1.25 inches occurring last evening across portions of the watch area. Cindy also caused widespread coastal highway and several short-lived tornadoes.

Still, the storm barely registered a blip for some in Memphis.
