Tropical Storm Debby weakens but Palm Beach County still feeling the affects

Tropical Storm Debby weakens but Palm Beach County still feeling the affectsTropical Storm Debby doubled in speed this afternoon while continuing its move northeast, according to the National Hurricane Center’s latest discussion.

At 2 p.m., Debby was 35 miles west to northwest of Cedar Key in Levy County and is now traveling east to northeast at 6 mph.

Its winds have remained at 40 mph, which is barely tropical-storm strength. Debby is expected to make landfall north of Yankeetown in Levy County sometime Wednesday morning. By Wednesday night, it is expected to be a tropical depression and should be just south of Salt Springs in Marion County. By Thursday morning Debby is expected to still be a depression and will be spinning in the Atlantic Ocean.
President Obama told Gov. Rick Scott this afternoon that Florida will have no “unmet needs” while recovering from Debby. He also shared his condolences for the one life Debby has claimed and the severe damage Debby has caused.

Meanwhile, with winds reaching about 205 miles to the southeast of the storm’s center, Debby continues to bring windy and possibly wet conditions with the potential for brief tornadoes to Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.

The National Weather Service forecasts clouds for the remainder of the day, with winds out of the south blowing 18 to 23 mph with gusts up to 29 mph. Rain chances grow as you move north and closer to the storm. There’s a 50-percent chance of rain in Palm Beach County and closer to 70 in the Treasure Coast.

Rainfall amounts since Tuesday, June 19, have been between 4 inches and 6 inches over Florida’s east coast metro areas, with some spots in Palm Beach County getting 8 inches to 10 inches, the weather service reports.

“Additional rainfall amounts through Friday will likely range from 3 to 5 inches over South Florida,” according to the weather service forecast discussion.

Our area may see some fast moving showers and storms as outside bands from the storm move through the area.

As Debby moves to the northeast and further away from us, we should get some breaks. Sun returns to the forecast Friday and sticks around through the weekend.
