Topical system Cristobal made landfall along the coast of southeastern Louisiana between the mouth of the Mississippi River and Grand Isle at 5pm yesterday evening. Maximum sustained winds at the time were estimated near 50 mph. The system will move to the north, combining with low pressure and a cold front and eventually soaking the Midwest, and bring storms here tomorrow and early Wednesday. The storms Tuesday afternoon and evening have a risk of becoming severe. Warnings and Storm Prediction Center updates can be found on My Huge Radar.
This tropical system will also bring tropical humidity levels back to central Indiana Tuesday. At least it also brings a breeze!
Heaviest rain from the remnants will stay to our west. Central Indiana should see anywhere from a third of an inch to three-quarters of an inch of precipitation.
