Tropical Storm Cristobal has formed in the Gulf of Mexico. While it's still a low-end tropical system, the storm will be of great interest to those living along the Gulf of Mexico. The forecast for the storm is highly uncertain and will remain so through the start of this weekend. Heavy rain will be the main threat along the Mexican coast for the next 24 to 48 hours.
