Tropical Storm Debby forms in the Gulf

As we mentioned on Friday, an area of disturbed weather has been brewing in the Gulf of Mexico.  The National Hurricane Center sent a reconnaissance plane into the system Saturday afternoon, and determined at 5 p.m. that it had reached tropical storm status.

Debby will not move much the next few days, and may not make a landfall until the end of the coming week.  As of now, it looks like she may hit the Texas coast sometime late Thursday or Friday as a category one hurricane.
