Tropical Storm Debby Continues to Wade off the Panhandle
As expected, Tropical Storm Debby remains stationary over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, dumping rain on those along the Florida’s Panhandle.
And little change is expected in the next couple of days, according to the National Weather Service.
Tracking models vary, with models heading west, north, east and northeast, with the latter direction deemed mostly likely due influencing from a mid-tropospheric trough over the northeast.
At 8 a.m. EDT, Debby was located about 90 miles south-southwest of Apalachicola, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. Down from 60 mph on Sunday.
Tropical storm force winds extend 200 miles from the center.
A tropical storm warning is in effect from the Alabama-Florida line to the Suwannee River, with a watch in place from the river to Englewood in Sarasota County.
