As Florida and southern Georgia residents kiss Debby good-bye, the track of the lingering system will bring some impact to the islands of Bermuda through the end of the week.
As Debby crossed the Florida Peninsula Tuesday night, it was downgraded to a tropical depression.
During Wednesday, Debby had lost its tropical characteristics and became a non-tropical low pressure area. However, during Thursday, the system was looking better organized.
As of 12:00 noon ET Friday, the system was located just north of the islands and was producing squalls, rough seas and gusty winds over nearby waters.
Regardless, the system, tropical or not, will bring tropical storm conditions to Bermuda as it approaches through Friday and departs early Saturday, according to AccuWeather.com meteorologists.
Rain squalls passed through the island during the early morning hours Friday. More are possible into early Saturday.
Most drinking water in Bermuda is rainwater collected on roofs, which is then channeled under ground and kept in storage tanks. As a result, rain would not be a terrible thing and only a minor disruption for visitors, as long as the dangerous part of the storm is treated with respect.
For the most part the system will be nuisance for shipping, fishing and cruising interests.
The remnants of Debby is forecast to pass off Cape Race, Newfoundland, over the weekend over North Atlantic waters.
The system is not expected to have significant impact along the Atlantic Seaboard of the U.S. moving forward.
A disturbance will swing across the Midwest and fire a round of severe thunderstorms to end the weekend.
Cooler conditions will move into the Interior Northeast early this week, but the warmth will hold on a little longer along the Interstate-95 corridor.
The air felt like an exceptional 163 F in Bandar Mahshahr, Iran, on Friday and similar or worse conditions will follow.
Drenching thunderstorms bring little-to-no relief to drought-stricken areas of the Sunshine State.
The stream of moisture into the Southwest is drying out some, so this weekend may not be as wet as the previous few days.
With no exact details on where Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 went missing, Indian Ocean currents may have swept one piece of the complicated puzzle to shores on Reunion Island.
