Cristobal About to Break a Unique Record

Tropical Storm Cristobal is now inland after making landfall along the Louisiana coast.

The forecast track takes the remains north through the central US and into the upper midwest/northern Great Lakes.

The western trough/surface front picks up the remains of Cristobal and lift it north...

This is very unique because after more than 2000 tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin since 1851 no tropical system has EVER impacted Iowa, Wiconsin, Minnesota and the upper peninsula of Michigan.   All of the multi-colored lines on the animation show EVERY tropical system since 1851.

Widespread rain the gulf coast north into central Canada.

The trailing front will boost temperatures across the upper midwest ahead of the remains of Cristobal Monday and Tuesday across the Ohio Valley
