Tropical Storm Debby Forms in GulfJune 23rd, 2012 at 4:23 pm by Matt Barrentine under FOX10 News, FOX10 Weather
Tropical storm Debby has formed in the central Gulf. Presently the storm is at 26.1N 87.5W with 50 mph winds.
There is plenty of confidence that this storm will creep north for the next 36-48 hours into the Northern Gulf… After that forecasting confidence goes down. There are two paths the storm could take; a couple of the models favor it taking a 90 degree turn eastward to the Florida peninsula as a trough picks up the system, the rest of the models see this trough missing the system and high pressure behind the trough pushing the storm due west towards Texas. More models favor the western solution making it the most likely scenario. A couple things to note; the models don’t bring it all the way into our area; and none grow the storm into a hurricane.
