Tropical Storm Cindy forms in Gulf of Mexico

Tropical Storm Cindy formed Tuesday in the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the storm is forecast to make landfall somewhere near the Texas-Louisiana border by Thursday.

As of 5 p.m., Cindy was located about 280 miles south of Morgan City, Louisiana. It's movement was stationary with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph.

"The big deal with Cindy will be the heavy rainfall, and the fact that it could cause some flash flooding for parts of the Gulf coast," Local 10 News chief certified meteorologist Betty Davis said.  

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Bret weakened to a tropical wave Tuesday afternoon.
