St Pete- Heavy rain off and on, Tornado Watch, flooding on my street and even on the sidewalks...my animals seem to sense something is going on... I am hoping USF cancels classes, it is not safe to be driving in this weather-just my opinion

Maitland: Probably the same as Orlando. Quite overcast and constant rain.
Orange City: A friend lives in OC and tell me it's raining hard with wind gusts that are blowing down dead branches. This morning she woke up to branches and limbs (same thing?) down all over the place.

Homosassa Springs:
Steady rain, light winds maybe 5 knots. Localised flooding mostly off US 19. People seem to have forgotten how to drive in the rain, saw 4 fender benders between Homosassa and Crystal River. Be careful out there folks! People seem mostly unconcerned and/or in denial. Remembering what Katrina did as a cat 1 in S Florida last year made me prepare early. Heard there are mandatory evacs in progress in Levy co. for Yankeetown and Inglis.

Good luck to all along the "west coast".

Extreme full moon tides, with wind pushing the surf higher up on the south-facing beach. We are hunkered down, with extra lines on the boats. The weather doesn't seem to bother the wild hogs much...

In Citrus County it has been raining steadily all day and we are now under mandatory evacuation for everyone living west of Us Highway 19, also up to 1 1/2 miles east of US 19 due to possible flooding and storm surge.
All mobile homes are to evacuate throughout the county due to possible wind gusts expected to be up to 80 mph.
Four shelters are to open at 6:00 PM today.

I think Crystal River has had about the least amount of rain in all Tampa Bay viewing area thus far. I think its been about 1 1/2 inches last 24 hours. We sure can use the rain thats for sure.

You were just about right Will. First raindrops in Tally just started. Thought the left side of the storm would be very dry, but radar presentation looks like NW quadrant may get "wrap around" steady rain all nite.

Still no (I mean dead calm) wind...

well here on the Treasure Coast in Vero Beach we have been suprisingly dry. Some heavy downpours earlier but none too long lasting. Based on the scale of Alberto I was anticipating more rain bands floating around.

Charleston, SC checking in...

Winds are steady at 17mph our of the South...with gusts to almost 30 mph.

Been a weird day. We have TS warnings up, of course.

Since we'll be on the East side of the depression, I imagine we're in for some of the wet stuff.

Sarasoto, 21:25, barometer - 29.87 steady. Have had only four or five wind gusts, maybe up to 35 mph over the past three days. Heavy rain today, dissipated quickly. I'm about four miles from the beach in north Sarasota.
This is quite unnerving considering the radar and recent forecasts.

Just got home from work. The rain was sprinkling intermittenly. As I was covering garbage cans tightly, and looking for small pointed objects to move, I noticed right before dark, the erie color of everything. The light was yellowish at first and then became a purplish color. I have seen sunsets where everything was exceptionally yellow,pink, or green, but this was purplish gray. I kind of thought about how hail filled clouds look sometimes. We are far enough from the coast that unless Tampa Bay gets a direct hit from a Cat 1, we will just be rainy and a little windy. We had a light steady breeze at about 8 miles per hour around 9pm.

There's a tornado warning in North Pinellas County - looks like NW Clearwater/Dunedin - until 9:45 pm.

Just posted on Ch 8 - Tornado Watch for Polk, Sarasota county until 8am

Conditions in flood central, i.e. Shore Acres in St. Pete, are mild, some squalls coming through but no significant wind/rain yet (as I type I can hear the rain starting again).

The gusts in Seminole (Pinellas County) are now up to 30mph and we are experiencing intermittent heavy rain squalls. The next organized squall looks like it will arrive around 11pm, and I expect to see the first tropical storm force gusts at this time. St. Petersburg reported a wind gust of 38mph in the last squall. My rainfall total for this event is 2.75 inches. We might get a break after this next squall, but expect to see another band form overnight in response to diurnal convection.

Hello everyone from Jacksonville. Our conditions here are just a slight drizzle so far, though we have had some heavier showers at times. There is almost no wind to speak of now.

Speaking of wind, I do have a quick question. The BoatUS.com site's projected wind swath shows Jacksonville having winds soon of 58-74 mph, and HurricaneAlley.net forecasts above 58 mph. Our local news website is indicate only winds of 20 mph and over (no further distinction), while the Weather Channel's site peaks at 35 mph. I can't get into the NWS page right now, but I think they say 35-40 mph.

Why is there such a spread? Between 20-74 mph is a lot of difference, which if these is most likely?

Here in Spring Hill (Hernando County). Most of the day saw light to moderate rain. Then the sun came out around 6 p.m. for a while and warmed up nicely. Then clouded up again. Since about 9:45 p.m. moderate to heavy rain at times with gusty southeast winds steady between 10-15 mph with gusts to 27 mph. Our strongest today.

Radar indicates another spiral band moving on-shore so these conditions should continue.

Panama City has had some clouds most of the day but late this afternoon it had that tropical look and feel. You can tell something tropical is close. Watching VIPIR it seem once the rain bands got near Bay County they dry out and never reach the ground... we have some rain but not much...yet. Now we under a tornado watch and it appears some of the more solid rain bands my hold and reach our area shortly and my be a little nasty.

We are experiencing our first TS force gusts here in Seminole in Pinellas County. We just gusted to 40mph and we are still awaiting the arrival of the next squall. St. Petersburg recently reported a gust of 41mph, and Egmont Key reported 45mph. I think that the winds will get a little stronger during the early morning hours and we may see peak gusts of 50-55mph.

Jacksonville - 6:50am. Very steady rain currently. Seems to have backed off since 4am when it was raining so hard it woke me up. Not much wind to speak of yet; according to weather.com that will pick up throughout the day and peak around 6PM. JEA's website shows about 20 power outages in the area with 13k customers out. We appear to be faring well here while receiving some much-needed rain.

Just thought I'd throw this out there for the Mobile County, Alabama area. Just to show how these storms effect such a wide area, yesterday afternoon/evening Dauphin Island, Alabama (south Mobile County) had water over the streets and cars/people were having to move to higher ground. This would not be such an event except for the fact that this is a Tropical Storm many many miles away. The island took a big punch from all of the storms last year. My favorite meteorologist, John Edd Thompson, from FOX 10 News lost his house last year. Keep all the others in your thoughts and prayers and never forget to count your blessings.

As far as North Mobile County, where I live, we only had a Thunderstorm warning and some really bad lightning and strong rain from feeder bands waaaay away from the storm. Thankfully, these storms diminished as they moved to the South where most of my family lives, including my beautiful (yes, he's beautiful) new grandson, Skylar Anthony Pitt. I'll make sure he pays attention to the weather when he gets older!! I had my little 13 month old friend, Autumn, out in the night last night and she saw the lightning and I said "listen" and she listened and heard the thunder. Then, I told her how important it is to go inside when storms are coming. I know, a little young there, however, you might as well bring them up right, huh? Weather people are good folks in my opinion.

Here's to a safe season and I probably won't post too much, just read and envelope all of the knowledge found on this website. Also, if my husband ever gets disability, I want to make a contribution to the site. I LOVE THIS SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coming in a bit late with this report. That's because we had a wind gust at 3:38 this morning of only 24 mph and the transformer in our front yard blew up. A little scary (ok, alot) to be woken up by a transformer blowing. So, we're probably the only home in Plant City without power! Geez, I'd hate to see a direct hit! Anyway, on generator power now waiting for TECO. Still very breezy here. The rain seems to be gone, but still a little overcast.

Here's to a safe season for everyone.
