Based on the official forecast track, the center of Cristobal will move through northeastern Louisiana today, through Arkansas and eastern Missouri tonight and Tuesday, and reach Wisconsin and the western Great Lakes by Wednesday. The biggest impacts will continue to be on the right side of the track, where heavy rainfall and flooding will be a concern.
Storm surge is becoming less of a threat along the northern Gulf Coast as Cristobal tracks inland. Winds are subsiding, but it will remain gusty from the northern Gulf Coast from southeastern Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle.
Rainfall of 4 to 8 inches, with isolated 12 inch amounts, is possible across the northern Gulf and portions of the Deep South.
As Cristobal lifts inland, a reduction in widespread rain is expected in Central Florida starting today, but scattered storms remain a threat.
