Showers And Storms Linger Over Florida

Sunday features plenty of clouds, a bit of sun, breezy conditions, and periods of showers and storms. Look for much of the activity to be along the Gulf coast, as moisture from Tropical Storm Cristobal continues to move into the area.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place at both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.  Coastal flooding is possible at high tides.  Highs on Sunday will be in the upper 80s along the Gulf coast.

In the tropics, squalls associated with Tropical Storm Cristobal are affecting the Louisiana coast early on Sunday, and landfall is expected overnight.  At 5 am Sunday, Cristobal was located near 27.3 North, 90.1 West, and was moving north at 12 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour.  A tropical storm warning is in effect from east of Morgan City, Louisiana to the Okaloosa/Walton County line in the Florida panhandle. The major threat from Cristobal continues to be flooding rain throughout the region, including portions of northern Florida.
