Track of TS 04L

A tropical disturbance developed into Tropical Storm Debby on the afternoon of June 23 in the Gulf of Mexico, becoming the earliest 4th storm on record in the Atlantic Basin. Debby moved sluggishly throughout June 24 and into June 25, at times becoming stationary. Debby’s strength did not increase as much as expected because of interference from an upper-level low on its western side that cut off its outflow.

As of 4 p.m. CDT (2100 UTC) June 25, Tropical Storm Debby is located within 20 nautical miles of 29.3°N 85.1°W, about 30 mi (45 km) south-southwest of Apalachicola, Florida. Maximum sustained winds are 40 knots (45 mph, 75 km/h), with stronger gusts. Minimum central pressure is 993 mbar (hPa; 29.32 InHg), and the system is moving NE at 4 kt (5 mph; 8 km/h). Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km) from the center of Debby.
