Debby weakens to post-tropical cyclone
Updated On: Jun 27 2012 03:47:51 PM CDT
Tropical Storm Debby is a post-tropical cyclone about 24 hours after making landfall in Florida.
As of 4 p.m. CST Wednesday, Debby was at 29.5 North and 79.3 West, or about 180 miles east of St. Augustine, Fla.. It was moving east at 13 mph and had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph with higher gusts.
The National Hurricane Center said that Debby has lost its tropical characteristics and had a poorly-defined center, so it was re-classified as a post-tropical cyclone.
Forecasters said the post-tropical cyclone was expected to travel east with a turn toward the east-northeast and increase in forward speed over the next couple of days.
Debby made landfall near Steinhatchee, Fla. on Tuesday afternoon. It became less organized as it reached the east coast of north-central Florida.
Debby was expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 20 inches across much of northern and central Florida, with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches possible. Rain from Debby was diminishing on Wednesday.
