Tropical Storm Debby makes landfall in Florida

Debby continues to weaken this afternoon, but remains a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The storm's center of circulation made landfall this afternoon near Steinhatchee, Florida. Hurricane hunters continue to find surface wind speeds that just meet tropical storm criteria and surface buoys on Wundermap are all clocking in at or below 30 mph. The storm's upper-level circulation is being stretched out into the Atlantic by the same steering forces that will transport it to the other side of Florida, and this combined with dry air has led to a messy-looking tropical cyclone over the past couple of days. Though there was no lack of rain yesterday in the Florida panhandle, Debby has certainly been weakened by the dry air that has wrapped into its center (figure 1). Water vapor imagery from satellite shows Debby's center is almost completely void of moisture, though rain continues to fall on the northeast side of the storm where moisture is still available. A 6 foot wide, 12-15 foot deep sinkhole swallowed a small portion of I-10 in Madison County west of Jacksonville, Florida, this morning, where heavy rain continues, though this hole will likely be filled and the lane reopened by tomorrow morning. Wind shear around 20 knots is also keeping Debby at bay, but the real disrupter is the lack of moisture.


Figure 1. Where's Debby? On the left: visible satellite imagery. On the right: water vapor satellite imagery, where the dry air ranges from black to rusty orange. Debby's center is almost completely void of moisture. These images were captured around 1pm EDT.

Forecast for Debby
The forecast for Debby continues to be similar to previous forecasts. The storm will likely continue to lose strength as it moves over Florida this evening and Wednesday, but could gain some momentum again when it reaches the yet untapped Atlantic water. There's a high chance Debby will be downgraded to tropical depression status this evening. The HPC continues to forecast up to 8 inches of rain for far northeast Florida over the next 5 days, likely because of the slight strengthening forecast to occur on Thursday and beyond. Debby's center will most likely be over Atlantic water Wednesday night.


Figure 2. Advisory map for the U.S. Tuesday afternoon. Heat advisories (pink) blanket the central U.S. This heat is expected to move eastward over the next few days as the ridge of high pressure advances.

The Heat Continues

Record highs continue to fall Tuesday afternoon in the central U.S., where Denver, Colorado had its fifth consecutive day of triple-digit heat after it reached 100°F at 1pm MDT, and could continue to rise this afternoon. This ties the all-time record for consecutive 100°F+ days. Nebraska and Kansas are particularly toasty this afternoon; McCook, Nebraska has reached 113°F so far, and Hill City, Kansas is up to 112°F. Though, to put that in perspective, the state record for Nebraska is 118°F, and the state record for Kansas is 121°F.

The heat moves east tomorrow, and by Thursday, many of the major Midwest cities are forecast to be in the triple-digits, including Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis. By Friday the heat will be beating down on the East Coast. In the meantime out west, the forecast high in Fresno for this weekend is 82°F, which would tie as the coolest final weekend in June on record, according to the Hanford forecast office.

The tropical wave at 35-40W & 7-12N is holding its own as far as the dry air is concerned. It is creating its own moisture field as it heads westward. It really should have no serious impediments for it to develop slowly down the road. I think the GFS has it developing in the short term. It is an interesting feature to watch, and amazing that as soon as Debby is making her exit, another player steps up. 2012? hmmmm?

Maybe this first disturbance will act like the "sacrificial wave" and pave the way for the stronger one behind it coming off the coast of Africa to have a better chance to develop. A few days ago someone posted a 168hr GFS map with a feature developing in the Central Atlantic and maybe this is what the model is picking up on. We shall see what happens.


You reminded me that the GFS is running. xD

There it is, the CATL disturbance, SSW of Puerto Rico in 144hrs, so far that's the strongest it has looked in this run. It looses the other TW right after it moves into the water.

anyway guys before I go to bed I have to say that tropical wave with 1014 mb low via 00Z surface map looking good if convection was to build we may see a 20% tomrrow and 97L to be born in terms of forecast I see either two tracks (if it is to develop) #1 tracks like hurricane gustav (08) #2 tracks like hurricane charley (04)

Debby is obviously rapidly weakening. Winds are way down from just a few hours ago... Nothing above 30 even in gusts..
.



I was going to say that,but didn't want darts fired at me...lol


It has taken a while but I do believe Debby will not be with us by tomorrow. She will just be a post tropical Low, sometime tomorrow,(late morning/mid-afternoon, IMO. Overall, Tough, tough storm to forcast throughout her development and prior.
Hope all is well for everyone who had to deal with Debby, in regard to the serious rains she created, and tornadoes etc.

Well good news and bad new here in Colorado. The Flagstaff fire just on the outskirts of Boulder that put me under pre evacuation earlier today looks to be mostly suppressed thanks to a huge air assault on it. However the Waldo Canyon Fire went insane today jumping many of the fire lines crews built and is pushing into very densely populated areas now. No structures were claimed up until today but preliminary reports are many structures were lost today as the fire is pushing into Colorado Springs. The smoke plume is pushing 40dbz!

Waldo Canyon Fire Explodes -- 32,000 Evacuated

Air Force Academy Evacuates Its Pine Valley Housing

POSTED: 5:12 am MDT June 26, 2012
UPDATED: 9:18 pm MDT June 26, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Authorities say 32,000 people have been evacuated in Colorado Springs as the wind-driven Waldo Canyon Fire exploded Tuesday.
"This is a firestorm of epic proportions," Colorado Springs Fire Chief Richard Brown said at a Tuesday night briefing.

Evacuations have been issued for northwest Colorado Springs and parts of the Air Force Academy campus.

Multiple homes have burned in the Mountain Shadows community in the western foothills, fire officials said.

Winds gusting to 65 mph blew the wildfire over containment lines into Colorado Springs on Tuesday afternoon.

Had some light Ash right fall in the Yard right as the fire started today Taz! That's how I first noticed it looked outside to see a pretty serious smoke plume way to close for comfort. They are describing the Waldo Canyon Fire as historic in what it did today down in the springs though.

Sounds like a fire tornado.

Ever seen one of those?

I have seen a very small one before in person, but I can't imagine what might be happening in a fire of thousands of acres.

The fire tornado I saw was only in about a 1 acre fire, which was being controlled.

Tropical storm Doksuri has developed in the Western Pacific and is heading towards the northern Philippines and southern China. Isn't expected to get too strong due to wind shear, but could become a high end tropical storm. I put a full analysis on my blog Meteorological Phenomena

Wish we could have some of the rain Florida is getting. Last fall the lakes here were so low you could have walked across Lake Houston and kept your feet dry most of the way. Lake levels are beginning to fall again.
