Winds NW at 10, gusting to 20, light occasional rain, mostly cloudy. Pressure rising after bottoming out at 6AM
-------------------- South FL Native... experienced many tropical systems, but actually had to put up the panels for: David ('79) - Floyd ('87) - Andrew ('92) - Georges ('98) - Frances ('04) - Wilma ('05) - Matthew ('16) - Irma ('17)
Afternoon models are maintaining the offshore track tomorrow, some are closer than others to the coast, some make landfall in NC others do not. The wind-field of Dorian is expanding, so there may still be a lot of erosion along the coast and winds, and rain. 4-7 ft of storm surge in places is very possible.
I'm in Lakeland and we had some rain here this afternoon but not much. I've noticed in the last 30-40 minutes that the winds are picking up (not enough to blow my wig away, LOL...(and no, I don't wear a wig). However, I do not have a barometer so I wouldn't know the actual wind speeds or gusts. Everyone have a good night's sleep. :-) *anemometer*. Slaps forehead. I know the difference; the barometer is used to measure pressure.
-------------------- You know you're a hurricane freak when you wake up in the morning and hit "REFRESH" on CFHC instead of the Snooze Button.
Actually saw the sun peak out from behind some fast moving clouds. Less then 1/2" of rain so far. I'd call it breezy and partly cloudy. The stronger cells in the rain bands seem to keep just missing my location.
Sunny and a bit breezy in Melbourne near I-95. We've had a couple of brief heavy rain/wind bands come through this morning but nothing for a while. Breeze is picking up a bit the last hour or so but not much.
Zephyrhills here. Have rain bands coming through. Gusty wind and rain. I feel bad for my low lying friends, they've already been flooded out with all the rain we've been having. Not going to be good if we get anything TS like.
Great rainfall data from hundreds of observers throughout Florida, part of a nation-wide network.
My station ID is FL-VL-42. My observation includes 24-hr rainfall, temperature, cloud cover, wind direction/speed, with comments on significant weather observed.
Wesley Chapel - starting to get gusts at 3 pm
weather sensor says high of 17 mph, but at it's height I'm supposed to multiply that by 2
Trees are moving quite a bit, so 34 mph seems reasonable.
Small shower around 2 pm. 0.32 inches.
I picked up some sandbags at our local park. Used them to reinforce my culvert.
Still trying to get over the flu, but the facility was closing today and the culvert was developing holes.
30 MPH steady during extreme outer rain band; otherwise it's about 15 to 20 MPH in between bands. Had about 1/4 inch of rain so far since last night (not much). I'm in San Antonio, FL which is about 30 miles NE of Tampa, FL.
