Debbie formed in the warm waters of the Southeast Gulf and slowly moved northward. Debbie got picked up by the trough which was located to the North of it for a time which allowed it to make the initial turn towards Florida.

When it comes to learning about the weather it is very important to understand about the oceans. The reason for this is that ocean currents can play a major role on not only weather but also the climate of a region. The current that we are looking at is called the Loop Current. If you look at the image above you can see that it’s situated just off the west coast of Florida and extends into the Gulf of Mexico. The Loop current is a warm current and this creates a warmer surrounding in...

The two features acted together to create a very...
