In Orlando it's rainy, not from Wilma directly, but from the offshoot "wing" band that has come from the system.

It rained quite a bit yesterday here in Sarasota. Right now it's just hot and humid here. I'm working on setting up an anemometer outside so if I see any high winds, I will post them. I sure hope Wilma dosen't decide to move a little further north.

Today it was humid and grey here in Seffner. We got some off and on showers but nothing major. I am sure the weather here will worsen as Wilma approaches.

Who wouldve thought we would have a TS Alpha in October?

Everything is picked up and put away in the garage... now the real waiting beings. All day it's been hot, muggy, and generally overcast with a brief shower followed by sunshine peaking thru the fast moving clouds.

Our first squall just passed us in Pinellas County bringing brief heavy rain and lightning. Our winds are still very light right now, leveling off at around 10mph over the past few hours...nothing unusual this far in advance of a tropical cyclone. According to the NWS out of Ruskin, tropical storm force winds will commence around 5am Monday morning here in the Tampa Bay area, with possible gusts to 65mph between 7-11am. I will report again around 8am Monday morning. God bless...

Re: Report Conditions in Your Area From Wilma Here

A steady breeze here in Broward, picked up alittle in the last few mintues around 10:40 PM EDT. Wilma's eye looks to be reforming and she is gaining strenght, pushing Cat 3 levels. Glad I got my panels up (and took photos to prove it)! Noticed very few people in the neighborhood did the same, they are going be sorry tomorrow AM when the wind really starts cranking.

This is going to be ugly for all the counties SE of landfall as they will be on strong side of the storm: Monroe (the Keys), Dade and Broward, maybe even WBP will see easily see hurricane force winds. Tornado "watch boxes" are popping up all over the state from Key West clear up the to the space coast and back across as far west as Tampa.

Re: Report Conditions in Your Area From Wilma Here

Around 4AM the wind really picked up in NW Broward and we finally got some rain. Now's it's 6:20 AM EDT and we've got landfall of a solid Cat 3 just south of Naples - a little ahead of schedule and just south of predicated, given all the factors involved this has been a near perfect forecast. Given the track and strenght of this storm the next few hours here are going to be wild. Wind is whippin' pretty good steady at 35, gusting to 50. Amazingly my panels aren't rattling that much, I guess its because they are so heavy (steel not aluminum) and the winds are "only" at tropical storm force.

Punta Gorda has sustained wind around 35 mph with gusts up to about 45 mph, according to WINK-TV. Shutters across the lanai are rattling, white caps in the canal, no damage that I see from our northeast-facing sheltered front porch.

Rainy and windy here but not too bad - I'm comparing this to Frances and Jeanne. It wasn't loud enough to wake me up and there's no water seeping in around the doors and windows.
We've had 3 confirmed tornado touchdowns in Brevard: Cocoa Village last night, West Melbourne near Sam's, and A1A in Satellite Beach (I think?) this morning. Scary stuff.
I need coffee.

It's still 80F here so the front hasn't crossed yet. Wind gusts to 35mph. Two more suspected tornadoes travelling through south Brevard and Palm Bay. Not headed in my direction.

Turns out the A1A tornado was in Floridana Beach,down towards Sebastian Inlet, not Satellite Beach. Unless there were two of them?

Wind: North gusting to 31mph

The cold front has passed us, and we are getting a chilly (by Florida standards) north wind in Pinellas County right now. Our winds peaked at around 7am this morning with gusts in the range of 40-50mph, but no sustained tropical storm force winds. This is about what I expected. The highest gusts (around 50mph) were experienced along the Pinellas bayfront where the wind came unhindered across the bay.

Theres a report of a entire house destroyed in Floridana about 15 or so miles south of here on A1A from a tornado. Quite a few reports of other tornado damage coming out as the day progresses.
