Friday Night: Portions of the viewing area now sit under a Tropical Storm Warning

Weather

Tropical storm conditions likely within the next 36 hours.

Tonight – Skies will be partly cloudy. Expect a calm evening. Lows near 73.

Tomorrow – Scattered thunderstorms are likely tomorrow afternoon. Anticipate a hot and humid afternoon. Highs near 90.

Extended – Cristobal will likely make landfall Sunday night as a strong tropical storm. Heavy rain and gusty winds will batter the area Sunday into Monday. Cristobal will vacate by Tuesday. Hot and mostly dry conditions will wrap up the work week. Daytime highs will sit in the 90s.

POTENTIAL CRISTOBAL IMPACTS:

RAIN: Average 3″- 7″, Locally 10-15″+ in some feeder bands (If under a feeder band, our threat for flash flooding will greatly increase)

WIND: Winds of 25-40 mph with higher gusts near 50 mph. Power outages will be possible. Trees will be vulnerable due to heavy rain and wind.

TORNADO: Occasional tropical funnels and weak short-lived tornadoes.

COASTAL FLOODING & STORM SURGE: 2-4′ of storm surge from Grand Isle to Ocean Springs including Lake Borgne. Coastal flooding/storm surge will likely be an issue for coastal areas east of the center, especially east facing shorelines thanks to high tides and persistent south and southeast winds. Of course, this is also dependent on where the center of circulation tracks. This includes our tidal lakes, as well. Inundation of 1-2′ will be possible.
