Post-Tropical Cyclone Debby – Day 5

Post-Tropical Cyclone DebbyPosition: 29.5N 78.3W [ 4PM CDT 2100 UTC].
Movement: East [090°] near 13 mph [20 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 40 mph [ 65 kph].
Wind Gusts: 50 mph [ 80 kph].
Minimum central pressure: 1003 mb ↑.

Currently about 180 miles [295 km] East of St Augustine, Florida.

Debby transited the Florida peninsula last night and is headed out while still plagued by wind shear and dry air. The GFS model which has been most correct about Debby says it will dissipate today. None of the models is showing intensification this morning.

As GFS predicted, Debby has lost its tropical characteristics and has become post-tropical. This is the final NHC advisory.
