Widespread strong winds will not be an issue now that Cindy is weakening, but breezy conditions will continue for parts of the ArkLaTex into this evening. Sustained winds of 15-25 mph with gusts above 30mph are possible. A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect for all of northwest Louisiana until 3 a.m. Friday.

Bands of moderate to, at times, heavy rain will continue to spiral around the center of the remnants of Cindy into tonight. Additional rain amounts of up to 1-3 inches are possible with 5 inches or more possible in some localized spots across the eastern ArkLaTex.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for portions of the ArkLaTex until Noon Friday.

Here's a timeline of the rain through Friday morning with the latest FutureTrack models:

We'll be monitoring the movement of the remnants of Cindy very closely the rest of the week. You can check for updates on the StormTracker 12 Facebook Page and through Twitter.
