Cristobal Arrives Monday

June 6th, 2020

Zach's Friday Evening Forecast (6/5)

Hot weather continues Sunday with highs in the low 90s but feeling like near triple digits thanks to the humidity. Cristobal will make landfall Sunday somewhere in Louisiana before moving through Arkansas Monday and Tuesday. It’ll be a quick-moving system, but we’ll have a 24 to 36-hour window of rain, wind, and a tornado threat. Around 1-3 inches of rain is expected for most in the state. However, some locations could see 3-5″ where bands of heavy rain set up. Wind will be at its strongest Tuesday with gusts as high as 40-50 mph. We can’t rule out a few isolated gusts stronger than 50 mph. We’ll continue to update you as Cristobal draws closer.
