TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- For the last several days, we've been watching Tropical Storm Debby as it moved through the open Atlantic. This storm is expected to dissipate later tonight.

Debby is now a post-tropical cyclone as its center of rotation is not well defined. Winds are still sustained at 40 mph, though they will likely decrease through the next day or so. Debby is currently sitting about 1400 miles northwest of the Azores, moving at 23 mph toward the northeast.

At this time, there are no other areas of interest within the Atlantic Basin.
