A tropical storm that passed more than 400 miles to the west dumped more than a foot of rain and spawned several tornadoes over a three-day period across portions of the Florida peninsula.

Cristobal, which is now a tropical depression and moving into the Midwest, is no longer directly influencing the weather across the Sunshine State, but tropical moisture is forecast to linger for several more days. As a result, numerous showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast through at least Friday, some of which could cause localized flooding.

Flooding was severe enough Sunday to prompt the closure of I-10 in Suwannee County, where an estimated 12 to 15 inches of rain accumulated over a 48-hour period. Rainfall estimates elsewhere from Tropical Storm Cristobal ranged from 3 to 7 inches in Northeast Florida, to 1 to 3 inches across much of South Florida.

At least five tornadoes were reported across Florida over the weekend from Tropical Storm Cristobal, including and EF1 that moved through downtown Orlando.

Other tornadoes were observed Sunday near Lake City and Lake Butler, which according to the National Weather Service, produced EF0 damage in Columbia and Union counties respectively. This video was sent to us from our Facebook fan Matt Rocco.

The widespread tropical moisture from Cristobal has come to an end across Florida, however, a humid air mass will remain in place for several more days. This moisture will aid in the development of scattered to numerous afternoon showers and thunderstorms, which will be most focused across inland areas of north and central Florida. Locations near Florida’s Big Bend and Suwannee River Valley that have recorded over a foot of rain in the past three days are most susceptible to additional flooding.

On Thursday, a cold front is expected to approach from the west, then stall across North Florida Friday. This will add more lift and energy to an already charged and saturated atmosphere, likely triggering more rounds of mainly afternoon and evening thunderstorms. This will keep elevated rain chances and periodic episodes of localized flooding in the forecast for sections of north and central Florida through at least the start of the weekend.

Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to make landfall in Louisiana Sunday evening, spreading heavy rain, potential flooding, and the risk of tornadoes across the Florida Panhandle and as far east as Jacksonville.

A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for coastal Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties, or roughly all coastal areas west of Eglin Air Force Base in the Florida Panhandle. Tropical storm force wind gusts (greater than 39 mph) are likely in these areas now through Sunday night.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all coastal and inland areas from Florida’s Big Bend to Pensacola through Sunday night and Monday morning, respectively. Flooding has been ongoing or was imminent in and around the Suwannee River Valley, where Flash Flood Warnings were issued and parts of I-10 had to be closed from flooding. Radar estimates in this area suggest that nearly a foot of rain has fallen over the past 48 hours.

An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain is possible across the advised area through Monday, with locally higher amounts possible.

A few brief tornadoes and waterspouts are also possible as the large circulation from Tropical Storm Cristobal rotates through the Florida Panhandle and North Florida.

A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect from the Florida-Alabama state line to Horseshoe Beach along Florida’s Nature Coast. Water inundation of 1 to 3 feet above normally dry ground will remain possible in these areas, especially at times of high tide through Monday.

Cristobal is expected to continue northward, losing strength and likely degrade into a Tropical Depression on Monday, when the storm moves across the lower Mississippi River Valley.

The widespread hazards from Tropical Storm Cristobal will subside across Florida Sunday night, but ample amounts of moisture will likely stay stay in place through at least midweek. A summer-like pattern will take over beginning Monday, with the majority of showers and thunderstorms being scattered and developing mostly in the afternoon hours along sea breeze interactions.
