The National Hurricane Center indicates that Tropical Depression 3 has developed in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Conditions will be favorable for tropical development and we will likely see this depression become Tropical Storm Cristobal Tuesday. The storm could eventually head towards the ArkLaTex by the beginning of next week. If long-range models are correct, we could see our heaviest rain next Tuesday. Several inches of rain will be possible. There is still a great deal of uncertainty on the possible path of this storm. Stay Tuned!
