News & Information
6/4/20 Tropical Storm Cristobal 4am Update:
Cristobal remains a Tropical Storm over the Yucatan Peninsula, but is expected to weaken into a Tropical Depression later today. It is forecasted to re-emerge into the Gulf late Friday and continue northward through the weekend. There remains considerable uncertainty in the track at this time, so please continue to monitor the forecast from us and from the National Hurricane Center through the coming days.
10 am Advisory: Cristobal has drifted inland over Mexico. Its interaction with Mexico and movement back over water over the next couple of days will greatly influence what – if any – potential for tropical storm conditions we may have here early next week.
For now, the key remains to stay aware of the latest forecast info! It’s always good to have your hurricane plan and supplies in place when hurricane season starts, so if you haven’t checked on those in a while, this could be a good time to take a look at those, as well!
4am Update to Tropical Storm Cristobal: Cristobal will meander in the southern Bay of Campeche through the next couple of days, then move into the Gulf by the weekend. Please continue to monitor the forecast from us and from the National Hurricane Center for the latest updates.
