Debby's fate remains unclear. Normally storms in the NE Gulf tend not to intensify rapidly. Even though the water is warm it does not run deep, therefore the heat content needed to power a tropical storm is limited, My opinion is that she drifts north into the FL Panhandle due to being drawn in by strong convection there (falling pressure).
Our next big story here in NC and VA will be the big heat coming this weekend....--
