Tropical Storm Debby continues to churn in the Gulf of Mexico and remains nearly stationary. As of 7 AM CDT, Monday, June 25, 2012, the center of Debby was located about 90 mi SSW of Apalachicola, FL. Debby has weekend, slightly, over the past twelve hours as maximum sustained winds have lowered to 50 mph and the minimum central pressure has risen to 993 mb (29.32").
When viewing Debby via satellite you can notice that there is not much in the way of well organized convection around the center of circulation. Instead, the main convection is lined up southwest-northeast from the central Gulf of Mexico into western Florida. This is also where several water spouts and tornadoes have been seen and more are possible. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a tornado watch for much of the Floridian peninsula until 2 pm EDT.
As long as Debby spins to the west, a threat for tornadoes will be possible. This is quite possibly until the end of the work week. So stay safe and aware of any tornado warnings that are issued for your specific location. Receive the warnings immediately by using WeatherCall. I rely on WeatherCall to keep my family safe and highly recommend it. There are several options available from a basic service to a mobile and more enhanced one. Pick the one that fits your needs.
