In Brevard: another dreary and wet day in store
In Bevard, showers and storms will produce 1-2 inches of additional rain in many areas, with 3 to 5 inches possible in some spots
NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER – Tropical Storm Cristobal’s maximum sustained winds have increased to 50 mph as of Saturday morning and is strengthening as it travels north in the Gulf of Mexico toward the U.S. Gulf coast.
The National Hurricane Center has issued a tropical storm warning from Louisiana to the Walton County line in Florida, which predicts tropical storm conditions of sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph are expected within 36 hours.
The National Hurricane Center said the storm will bring threats of flooding rain, coastal flooding, high surf and strong winds to the Gulf Coast over the weekend.
Storm surge watches have been put into effect from east of Morgan City, Louisiana, to the mouth of the Mississippi River, and from Indian Pass to Arepika, Florida.
Forecasters don’t expect an intense hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico as the storm is affected by dry air conditions.
In Brevard, we will be another dreary and wet day in store. Showers and storms will produce 1-2 inches of additional rain in many areas, with 3 to 5 inches possible in some spots.
Inundation of more roads is likely later today. Never drive through a flooded road – Turn around, don’t drown!
