All eyes are on Tropical Storm Cristobal that is churning in the Gulf of Mexico Sunday morning.

Cristobal is forecast to make landfall across the Louisiana Gulf Coast Sunday evening.

Heavy rainfall and flooding will be possible Tuesday through Wednesday. Widespread rainfall totals will be between 1-3"+. The heaviest rain will likely fall west of Madison. This where the forecast models are showing the highest rainfall totals. This much rain could cause a rise in our river levels.

After the rain moves out, cooler weather will move in by the end of the workweek. A mid June cool down is looking likely. Highs Friday through next weekend might only be in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. The Temperature outlook for June 12-16 favors cooler than normal conditions.
