Tracking TD Cristobal & impacts on the Mid-South
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) -Tropical Depression Cristobal will continue to track north and the center of circulation will pass west of the Mid-South.
The storm will bring gusty wind, heavy rain at times and the threat for isolated tornadoes. So far today, the storm has not produced any tornadoes so far but we will continue to watch it this afternoon and evening.
We are on the east side of the storm which will mean the potential for brief tornadoes within some of the rain bands or individual storm cells that may develop.
The east side of the storm is usually where some of the heaviest rain will fall. We are on that favored side for heavy rain so there could be the potential for flash flooding.
