At 10 a.m. CDT, the center of Tropical Depression Cristobal is located abouit 40 miles (65 km) east of Campeche, Mexico. It's moving toward the north near 12 mph (19 km/h). On the forecast track, the center will move back over the southern Gulf of Mexico this evening, over the central Gulf of Mexico on Saturday, and be near the northern Gulf of Mexico coast Sunday evening.
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast to occur during the next 48 hours, and Cristobal is expected to regain tropical storm strength later today. Some additional strengthening is forecast thereafter.
Cristobal is expected to produce the following rain accumulations through Wednesday morning:
For portions of the eastern and central Gulf Coast and the lower Mississippi Valley, rainfall accumulations of 4 to 8 inches, with local amounts to 12 inches, are forecast. Isolated significant river flooding is possible along the central Gulf Coast. Farther north across the Mid-Mississippi Valley, rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches, with local amounts to 6 inches, are expected. Rises along smaller-order streams are possible across the Mid-Mississippi Valley. This degree of rainfall is expected to lead to flash flooding. Rainfall across Southeast Mexico and northern Central America would continue the risk of life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
