2.30am Tropical Storm Debby Update

Unfortunately, since my update back during yesterday afternoon there is litte change in Debby except she is down by 5 mph. Max sustained winds remain at 45 mph, pressure is 993mb and she is stalled. Now we know the wind aspect isn’t the main feature but it’s the persistency in piling up of the water with the 3-4ft surge, 10-15ft waves on top which is producing beach erosion and coastal flooding up and down the Gulf Coast of Florida.

The rains remain a concern as this system continues to fed lots of Gulf moisture inland and because this system remains in the doldrums, nothing to give this thing a shove along, we appear to have a system which may not even get half way across North Florida by the time we get to midday Thursday…

The dry air HOPEFULLY will temper the rains somewhat but three to six day totals could still mount to 18-24 inches.

More again later today!
