OUTLOOK

The center of Tropical Storm Cristobal was located near 29.1 north
and 90.0 west and moving northward at 7 mph. This motion is expected
to continue for the next day before Cristobal begins to turn north-
westward on Monday afternoon. On this track, Cristobal will make
landfall shortly and move inland through the central United States
through the next several days.

Surface observations indicate the sustained winds of Tropical Storm
Cristobal remains unchanged at 50 mph with higher gusts. There is a
small chance of intensification prior to landfall. Cristobal is
forecast to weaken once moving inland. Later this week, Cristobal
will be absorbed by a larger extra-tropical low.

The central pressure was estimated at 993 mb.

LAND IMPACTS

SURGE: Life-threatening storm surge is expected through the next
day. The combination of this surge and normally higher tides will
create dangerous inundation. If conditions are realized, these
areas will receive the following peak surge:

Mouth of the Mississippi River to Ocean Springs MS including Lake
Borgne…3-5 ft
Morgan City LA to Mouth of the Mississippi River…2-4 ft
Ocean Springs MS to Marco Island FL including Mobile Bay, Pensacola
Bay, and Tampa Bay…1-3 ft

RAINFALL: Tropical Storm Cristobal can produce as much as 10 inches
across portions of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana through the Florida
panhandle. This rainfall could create dangerous flash flooding and
areal flooding.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected or occurring in the
warning.

TORNADOES: Several tornadoes are possible across much of the
northern Gulf coast through tonight.
