Tropical Storm Cristobal Discussion Number  11

NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL032020

400 AM CDT Thu Jun 04 2020

 

Satellite imagery and radar data from Sabancuy, Mexico indicate

that Cristobal has resumed a southeastward drift and moved farther

inland.  There is no data from near the core of the storm, so the

maximum intensity is set to a possibly generous 35 kt based on

continuity from the previous advisory and earlier scatterometer

data that showed 35 kt winds over water to the northwest of the

center.

 

The initial motion is a drifting 125/2 kt.  A slow eastward motion

is expected today.  After that, southerly flow associated with a

strengthening ridge over the western Atlantic and a developing

mid-/upper-level trough over northern Gulf of Mexico should turn

Cristobal northward with some increase in forward speed.  Later in

the forecast period, a north-northwestward or northward motion is

expected as Cristobal interacts with the trough, with most of the

track forecast guidance bringing the system to the northern Gulf

coast between 96-120 h.  The new forecast track has no significant

changes from the previous track, and it lies near the various

consensus models.

 

Cristobal should weaken to a depression in the next few hours as

the center drifts farther inland.  Little subsequent change in

strength is likely through 24 h due to much of the circulation

remaining over water.  By 36 h, the global model guidance suggest

that winds will increase over the Gulf of Mexico well northeast of

the center, so the new intensity forecast calls for Cristobal to

regain tropical storm status at that time.  From 48-120 h, Cristobal

is forecast to interact with the trough over the Gulf of Mexico,

which is likely to cause dry air entrainment and some shear.  The

intensity guidance suggests these conditions will allow only

gradual intensification, so the new forecast follows the trend of

the previous forecast in showing a peak intensity of 50 kt before

landfall on the northern Gulf coast. 

 

The global models indicate that Cristobal's wind field will expand

as the cyclone deepens over the south-central Gulf of Mexico.

Therefore, the size of the NHC wind radii have again been increased

primarily over the eastern semicircle at 36-72 hours.  Indeed,

the models suggest that when the storm reaches the northern Gulf

coast the worst conditions may occur at a large distance from the

center.

 

 

Key Messages:

 

1. Damaging and deadly flooding was already 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. Even though Cristobal is inland, tropical storm conditions will

continue along and near the coast of Mexico for a few more hours,

especially over western Campeche, eastern Tabasco, and northern

Chiapas states.

 

3. Cristobal is forecast to re-emerge over the southern Gulf of

Mexico on Friday and move northward over the central and northern

Gulf of Mexico over the weekend.  There is a risk of storm surge,

heavy rainfall, and wind impacts beginning over the weekend along

portions of the U.S. Gulf Coast from Texas to the Florida Panhandle.

While it is too soon to determine the exact location, timing, and

magnitude of these impacts, interests in these areas should monitor

the progress of Cristobal and ensure they have their hurricane plan

in place.
