Sunday June 7
We finally pushed the heat and humidity out of our region. The air will have a crisp feel as we can see the clearing on the satellite this morning. While we get a break for a few days with warm days and cool nights, Tropical Storm Cristobal is going to hit the Louisiana coast. This is a moderate strength storm, but the track will have a large impact on the vulnerability of the low lying coastline and city of New Orleans.
The rest of our forecast is below the Tropical Storm Cristobal info.

Tropical Storm Cristobal
Morning Snapshot at 8 AM
The concern with this storm is the counter clockwise wind flow. This will pile water into New Orleans from the east. That is what can enhance the storm surge potential, meaning a greater chance of flooding on top of the heavy rainfall expected.
Prime Storm Threats:
- 💦 Rainfall: 4 to 8, with isolated spots up to 12 inches
- 🌊 Storm Surge: 3 to 5 Feet
- 🌪 Isolated tornadoes
