MIAMI (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Debby weakened slightly as it moved slowly over the northern Gulf of Mexico on Monday, dumping heavy rains and threatening to bring flooding and tornadoes to parts of Florida.

Debby, the first named storm of 2012 to move into the Gulf of Mexico, was centered about 75 miles south of Apalachicola, Florida, the National Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT) update.

The storm's maximum sustained winds decreased slightly to 45 miles per hour (75 kilometers per hour) from 50 mph and forecasts predicted there would be little change in its strength over the next couple of days.
