Tropical storms feed off warm waters, and being cut off will allow for slight weakening.

Cristobal is moving toward the southwest near 3 mph. Bertha made landfall in South Carolina. Where will Tropical Storm Cristobal go next? Even though its possible Cristobal may move into southern Mexico and weaken for a time, there is a significant chance that it could later move north

"That is a lot of time over land for a tropical storm to maintain its structure, so it is possible that Cristobal could fall apart completely."

If the system survives, "strengthening is likely when it emerges back over the Gulf of Mexico," the National Hurricane Center said.

Reemerging over the Gulf of Mexico with a central low-pressure center would allow the storm to quickly reorganize.

"It could even allow it to reach hurricane status before reaching the US Gulf Coast," Miller said.

"There is still some question of how much strength this gains over the open Gulf of Mexico," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said. "But there is no question that the Gulf Coast will see significant rainfall and flooding possibilities either way."

States along the Gulf Coast should closely monitor the situation during the next several days and have a plan in place, should a storm threaten the coast.

Either way, the 2020 hurricane season is only a few days old and is already an active one. Cristobal is now the third named storm of the season. It's the earliest a third named storm has ever formed.
