NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 230 PM Friday... Models have the remnants of Cindy riding up along a cold front that will move east southeast across the area later this afternoon and tonight. The aforementioned systems and associated precip will exit the mountains for the most part prior to dawn Saturday morning. Mid level dry slot and breaks in the clouds over NE Ky and much of WV, well ahead of the aforementioned systems, will continue to generate scattered showers and isolated storms this afternoon and evening in the tropical like atmosphere ahead of Cindy. PW`s above 2 inches. Looking for the main organized band of heavy convection, associated with Cindy and the cold front, to first move across southeast OH and northwest WV this afternoon, then shifting eastward with the system later afternoon and tonight. Some of the storms may be severe, with mainly damaging winds, over the northwestern half of the area this afternoon and evening as the leading edge of the main band arrives.

Deep southwest flow will bring moisture associated with tropical depression Cindy to the area through tonight.

Available moisture, diurnal heating, deep layered shear exceeding 50 knots and sfc CAPE values exceeding 2000 J/Kg mainly along the OH River suggest some storms could produce damaging winds and periods of heavy rain.
