Tropical Storm Cristobal remains a weak tropical storm with wind speeds topping out at 50 mph. The storm has taken more of an eastern track, meaning its effects on Acadiana will be diminished. The storm was expected to make landfall south of New Orleans Sunday afternoon and evening.

Any slight deviations in track will have to be monitored as 30-miles in either direction could make a difference. For example, the latest GFS and European model runs from this morning are a little further west. This would put more of Acadiana, especially southeastern Acadiana, in the northern semi-circle of the storm. This could bring tropical storm-force winds further westward. We’ll have to see if this trend continues in models later today.

In terms of forecast impacts, winds of 30-45 mph could still be possible, especially over southeastern Acadiana, where tropical squalls will be more likely. Heavy rain won’t be a huge issue on Sunday, but flash flooding could be possible if rain-bands setup over the area on Monday.

Keep it tuned to KLFY throughout the week as we’ll be providing updates as needed.
