outside of the United States, please monitor products issued by
your national meteorological service.
 
 
DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 100 PM CDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal was
located near latitude 20.5 North, longitude 89.8 West. The storm is
moving toward the north near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general
motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days.  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.
 
Satellite-derived wind data and surface observations indicate that
Cristobal's maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph
(65 km/h) with higher gusts.  Some additional strengthening is
forecast during the next 48 hours.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km)
from the center.  An elevated observing site from Isla Perez, north
of the Yucatan Peninsula, recently reported sustained winds of 43
mph (69 km/h) and a gust to 53 mph (85 km/h).
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).
 
 
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Cristobal can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3, WMO header WTNT43 KNHC, and
on the web at https://www.hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT3.shtml
 
STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
 
Aripeka to Marco Island including Tampa Bay...1-3 ft
Grand Isle to Ocean Springs including Lake Borgne...2-4 ft
Indian Pass to Aripeka...2-4 ft
Ocean Springs to Indian Pass including Mobile Bay and Pensacola
Bay...1-3 ft
 
The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast in areas of
onshore winds and will likely extend along the coast well to the
east of the center.  Surge-related flooding depends on the relative
timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over
short distances.  For information specific to your area, please see
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office.
 
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected today within the
Tropical Storm Warning area along the Yucatan Peninsula.  Tropical
storm conditions are possible within the Tropical Storm Watch area
along the northern Gulf coast beginning early Sunday.
 
RAINFALL: 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.
 
Mexican states of Campeche, Quintana Roo, and Yucatan...Additional 4
to 6 inches, isolated storm totals of 25 inches.
 
Belize and the Mexican states of Tabasco and Oaxaca...Additional 4
to 6 inches, isolated storm totals of 12 inches.
 
Southern Guatemala, coastal portions of Chiapas, and El
Salvador...Additional 4 to 6 inches, isolated storm total amounts of
35 inches dating back to Saturday, May 30th.
 
Southern parts of Honduras...Additional 3 to 4 inches, isolated 8
inches.
 
Rainfall across Southeast Mexico and northern Central America would
continue the risk of life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.
 
SURF:  Swells generated by Cristobal will affect portions of the
northern and eastern Gulf coast during the next few days.  These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.

Tropical Storm Cristobal Forecast Discussion Number 16

Issued at 1000 AM CDT Fri Jun 05 2020

WTNT43 KNHC 051449
TCDAT3
 
Tropical Depression Cristobal Discussion Number  16
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL032020
1000 AM CDT Fri Jun 05 2020

Although the center of circulation is still over land, the system 
is gradually becoming better organized on satellite images.  A 
large convective band has become better defined over the northern 
and eastern portions of the circulation.  However, central 
convective features are still lacking.  The current intensity 
estimate is 30 kt based on surface synoptic observations.  
Re-intensification should begin later today, and an Air Force 
Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate Cristobal 
this evening as the center moves back over water.  Additional 
intensification is anticipated through early Sunday, however this 
should be limited due to dry mid-level air and some shear.  The 
official intensity forecast is about the same as in previous 
advisories and is near or above the latest intensity model 
consensus.

The cyclone is moving a little faster toward the north, or about 
360/10 kt.  For the next couple of days Cristobal should move 
mainly northward through a weakness between subtropical 
anticyclones.  A gradual bend toward the north-northwest is likely 
after the center reaches the northern Gulf coast due to some 
building of a ridge to the northeast.  The official track forecast 
is a little faster than the previous one and is a blend of the 
simple and corrected dynamical model consensus tracks. 
 
Regardless of its exact track and forward speed, Cristobal is
expected to have a broad and asymmetric wind field as it approaches
the northern Gulf coast. The strongest winds, highest storm surge,
and heaviest rains could be well removed to the east of the center 
of circulation. Therefore, it is important that users do not focus 
on the exact forecast path of the center of the cyclone.

 
Key Messages:
1. Damaging and deadly flooding has already been occurring in 
portions of Mexico and Central America.  Cristobal is expected to 
produce additional extreme rainfall amounts through the end of the 
week. The heaviest additional rainfall is expected over far southern 
Mexico and portions of the Yucatan Peninsula, while also extending 
along the Pacific coast from Chiapas to Guatemala and El Salvador. 
This rainfall could cause widespread life-threatening flash floods 
and mudslides. Refer to products from your local weather office for 
more information.

2.  Life-threatening storm surge is possible along the Florida Big 
Bend, in portions of southeastern Louisiana, and along the 
Mississippi coast within the next 48 hours, and a Storm Surge Watch 
has been issued for these areas. Residents in these locations should 
follow advice given by local emergency officials. 

3. There is an increasing risk of tropical storm force winds 
beginning Sunday morning from Intracoastal City, Louisiana, to the 
Alabama/Florida border, including metropolitan New Orleans, and a 
Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for this area. These winds will 
arrive well in advance of and extend well east of Cristobals 
center.

4. Heavy rainfall will spread onto portions of the Gulf Coast, from 
east Texas to Florida, this weekend into early next week, with areas 
of flash flooding and rapid rises on smaller streams and rivers 
possible.
