6/25/2012 – Debby Continues To Plague FL
Debby continues to meander in the northeastern Gulf Of Mexico and plague the FL Panhandle and Peninsula. As expected it has also been a nightmare for forecasters with weak steering currents aloft leaving a vast array of computer guidance solutions.
The storm has been losing strength this morning due to dry air intrusion and upwelling of cooler waters, as it has been spinning nearly stationary over the same area for days. The new forecast slowly brings it in across the northern FL Peninsula in a weakened state (perhaps as a depression). Regardless of classification the threat for very heavy rainfall and flooding continues, along with tornadoes over the FL Peninsula. The exact track of the storm center is of little consequence at this point as most of the weather is well to the east of it.
