ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. —
Tropical Storm Cristobal formed in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday breaking a record for the earliest we have had three storms named in a season.
It is forecast to initially move southward back over land and weaken back into a depression, but then begin to move northward and back out over water by Thursday night.
The official forecast calls for it to move northward toward the central Gulf of Mexico by Friday of this week as it's winds increase.
Many models then turn it northwest toward Louisiana or Texas, but we need to watch this closely.
Meanwhile, closer to 爱购彩票邀请码, we will see some of it's moisture by Thursday and Friday.
