Karen Fizzles Out; Expected Impact Now ‘Minimal’
October 5, 2013
Karen has all but fizzled out today downgraded to a tropical depression with winds down to 40 mph. The tropical storm watch that was in effect for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties has been dropped.
After a beautiful sunny Saturday, Sunday is expected to bring a few clouds from the remnants of Karen — expected to approach Escambia and Santa Rosa counties as just a tropical depression. Most areas will receive only up to an inch or two of rain, and the chance of severe weather is extremely small. Winds will gust to tropical storm strength only along the immediate coast, with 10-15 mph winds and gusts up to 20 mph forecast in the North Escambia area.
