Cristobal weakens to a Tropical Depression as it moves inland, just east of Shreveport in northern Louisiana. On the forecast track, the center of Cristobal should move into Arkansas and Missouri later today and tonight, and it'll likely reach Wisconsin and the western Great Lakes by Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph with higher gusts. Additional weakening is expected through Tuesday. However, Cristobal is expected to strengthen some as it becomes an extratropical low Tuesday night and Wednesday.
