Cindy weakens; tropical storm warning dropped for New Orleans metro

NEW ORLEANS — Tropical Storm Cindy has weakened a little and become less organized as it moves toward the Texas and Louisiana border.

The tropical storm warning for the greater New Orleans area has been canceled, but it remains in effect for areas west and east of the New Orleans metro, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Heavy rains are still possible for the next 24 hours, but they will be more scattered.

There will be waves of tropical showers and storms that produce heavy downpours along with some bands setting up over the area, but it will not rain consistently all day.

The biggest threat for the area is isolated tornadoes. The tornado watch for parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida has been extended until 7 p.m. Wednesday.
