(Reuters) - Tropical storm Cindy is expected to move inland near the Louisiana-Texas border Thursday morning as it continues to produce heavy rainfall over the northern Gulf Coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Cindy, located about 50 miles (85 Km) south-southeast of Port Arthur, Texas with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kmh), is expected to weaken while it moves over land, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

"On the forecast track, the center of Cindy will move inland near the Louisiana-Texas border later this morning, then move across western and northern Louisiana and into southeastern Arkansas tonight and early Friday," the NHC added.
