At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression 
Cristobal was located inland near latitude 18.8 North, longitude 
90.1 West. The depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 
7 mph (11 km/h). A turn toward the north with a slight increase in 
forward speed is expected later today, and a general northward 
motion is forecast to continue through Sunday. On the forecast 
track, the center will move over the Yucatan peninsula through the 
day today. The center is forecast to move back over the southern 
Gulf of Mexico by tonight, over the central Gulf of Mexico on 
Saturday, and approach the northern Gulf of Mexico coast Sunday and 
Sunday night.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is expected while the depression is 
located over land. Gradual strengthening is forecast to begin once 
the system moves over the southern Gulf of Mexico.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).
