A disorganized but potent weather disturbance near the Yucatan Peninsula has the strong probability of becoming Tropical Storm Debby, the fourth named storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season by Sunday. If this disturbance is able to attain tropical storm status, it will be the first time on record four named storms formed prior to July.

Where the system is headed and where the system will make landfall are questions that remain. Meteorologists and scientists are keeping a close and keen eye on the disturbance, identified by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) as 96L.

The latest from the NHC suggests that the disturbance has a concentrated area of thunderstorms that are displaced hundreds of miles east and south of the lowest surface pressures.

For the moment, it is very difficult for experts to state exactly what part of the Gulf coast is most likely to be impacted by this disturbance. Computer models display a variety of tracks that the disturbance can make. There is a strong possibility that the system could make landfall on Florida’s west coast.

Based upon current conditions of the disturbance, rain (as opposed to damaging winds) could be the hugest impact. Be sure to listen to NEWS 92 FM all weekend long for hurricane and tropical storm preparedness and the latest developments.
