The Post-Tropical form of Debby brought some light showers and strong winds to Bermuda to end June. The highest winds were recorded at 31kts gusting to 37kts (36mph gusting to 43mph), this briefly prompted a gale warning primarily for the northern marine area which was closer to the center of the storm and therefore more likely to actually see gales.

Impressively, satellite images showed that Debby’s circulation remained fairly well intact despite transitioning from Tropical processes to Baroclinic/Extra-tropical processes as it became associated with a cold front. Debby’s effects were limited to elevated surf, strong and gusty winds, and a few light showers – no damage to report! 🙂
