Tropical Storm Cristobal made landfall in Louisiana Sunday evening, June
7th, around 5:00pm. It is moving North at around 7mph, with maximum sustained
winds around 50mph. This is a very slow moving system. However, as it makes
its track Northward, it will impact our weather on Wednesday.

For Central New York, a high pressure system still dominates our weather.
Plenty of sunshine is expected Monday and Tuesday. Mild on Monday with highs
in the mid 70s. It becomes hot and humid on Tuesday with highs in the mid 80s
and dew points near 60 degrees.

This is as a warm front moves in attached to a low pressure system west of
us. This system gets cut off by Tropical Storm Cristobal on Wednesday.

Wednesday is when our weather turns into a jungle. Hot and humid with
scattered thunderstorms. This comes as a strong low pressure system moves in
from the south, currently Tropical Storm Cristobal. This low pressure system
will develop a cold front along it as it moves slowly north. This cold front
will swing through Wednesday producing scattered thunderstorms.

Behind this cold front comes cooler air gradually towards the weekend. Highs
will be in the 70s on Saturday and Sunday.
