TS Debby Well North of Cuba

Tropical Storm Debby as projected by the Cuban Weather Service INSMET at 6:00 a.m. on Sunday.

HAVANA TIMES — While some electrical storms and showers are expected in Western Cuba on Sunday, typical of the rainy season, Tropical Storm Debby is moving far northwest without posing a threat to the island.

TS Debby is moving slowly north on a track that is expected to turn west and parallel the Gulf Coast, possibly becoming of hurricane strength by mid-week, noted the National Hurricane Center (NHC) early Sunday morning.

Debby is currently packing 85 kph (50 mph) winds and a central pressure of 998 millibars.

The possibility of heavy rains and flooding promoted the NHC to call a tropical storm warning along the eastern half of the Louisiana Gulf Coast.
