Local news Manatee County Tropical Storm Update: Debby Projected to Hit Atlantic


BRADENTON -- AccuWeather.com reports weak steering currents, now and later, are raising issues for Debby's future path and redevelopment. The Atlantic is likely to be Debby's destination late in the week.

According to AccuWeather.com Sr. Vice President Joseph P. Sobel, Ph.D., "Debby has been sheared in two with the mid-level circulation blown off the Atlantic coast, while the low-level circulation has been left behind over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico."

"Assuming the system gets its second wind," continued Sobel, "it is likely to be picked up by a trough over the northeastern United States and pushed eastward across the Florida Peninsula and into the Atlantic."
