Tropical Storm Cristobal Forms, May Hit Texas As Hurricane
Tropical Storm Cristobal To Hit Texas
Top US meteorologists are tracking down the path of newly formed tropical storm Cristobal, expecting the storm to travel North across the Gulf and make landfall early next week on the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast. Experts agree that Cristobal may likely upgrade to a hurricane at that point.
Tropical storm Cristobal landed in Southern Mexico Wednesday, bringing a torrential downpour and flooding to much of the area of Atasta, Mexico. Cristobal will likely begin its trek toward Texas early Friday morning.
As a potentially ominous sign of a tumultuous hurricane season, Cristobal is actually the earliest ever third-named tropical storm to form in Atlantic hurricane season history. For reference, third-named tropical storms typically form in Mid-August, with last year’s forming on August 30.
