The National Hurricane Center has issued a TROPICAL STORM WATCH for South Louisiana, which includes the Choctaw, Chackbay, and Bayou Boeuf areas.
The TROPICAL STORM WATCH extends from Intracoastal City, Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border.
A TROPICAL STORM WATCH means tropical storm conditions are expected within the next 48 hours. This watch will likely be upgraded to a warning either later tonight or on Saturday.
Impacts from Cristobal look to begin along the coast very early Sunday morning before transitioning inland through the day. A landfall is likely Sunday evening near the south-central Louisiana coastline.
