There’s still significant uncertainty regarding its track and intensity later this week.

HOUSTON — Hurricane season started yesterday, and right on schedule we have Tropical Storm Cristobal. 

Hurricane Hunters flew into Tropical Depression 3 earlier today and found max sustained winds at 40 mph which means that this system is officially a Tropical Storm.   

It’s too early to tell exactly who will be a risk from this storm so it is important everyone along the gulf coast pay close attention to the forecast.

I would urge you and your family to watch the weather with us twice a day, and use the KHOU 11 app to get updates on the go, just in case the system strengthens and decides to head our way.

If a system came Houston’s way, we could see higher tides and heavy rainfall and strong winds but again, that’s only if something developed and came this way.
