cold 57 degrees in O'town this morning. Looking forward to the sun coming out in an hour or so.

Interesting rain event for us, little else.
Thoughts to all in South Florida who are w/o power and flooded.

I just spoke to my friend in Miami (I left to come to my parents in Palm Beach) - she lives in Schenley Park, just west of Coral Gables. She says they have received no break, the eye did not come over them and remarked that the winds on the back side seem to be even stronger than the front. She says she has been hearing roof tiles hit her house and noticed that her neighbors are missing between 50-75% of their roof tiles. Apparently, Bryan Norcross is telling them that it will be 2 pm before the winds pass. They lost power early this morning. I am a little scared to see what I am going to be going home to in MIami when I finally return. Sorry I don't have more news but you can always watch www.wfor.com live feed - they are doing a great job!

Hi everyone.....great job on keeping us all informed.

I have 2 questions if I might.......Do you at all see Wilma curving back into the States or Canada.

Also, CNN this morning said Alpha was gone.....is that right????

Thanks

Kim

Mark,
They are near Forest Lakes. Do you know that area? That is a modular and mobil home area.

Same here a little NW of Orlando...the highest wind gust was around 25 mph. The rain was blowing diagonally for a little while; a bit on the heavy side at times.

Compared to what we've seen in South Florida, this has been a relative non-event for Central Florida. Good luck to those in SFL.

Also looks like we're going to see a rather dramatic clearing this afternoon.

Alpha is naught but a TD according to the latest advisory from the NHC. Still moving North

Back to Wilma...I'm guessing it's the front that is causing that west side of the storm to flatten like that? Almost as if it's saying "get on out of here!"

We are getting sunshine a bit windy and cold, around old Tampa bay, but nothing out of the ordinary (except the temps).
Heavy seas running the beach is deserted http://www.wtvt.com/clwcam.htm

Good luck to you guys who are catching the real storm

Oh come on (unapproved smiley face) ..this isn't even like Jeanne or Frances (25 M North of orlando here)..

Heck I even slept thru Charlie (reminds me of Animal House - my advice to you son is to drink heavily).. then you can sleep right thru these things.

OK info - here it is gusty -not bad. Many palm frowns in the yard. Estimate (wild guess) 2" of rain so far. Very wet.

Have a question... friends boss wants him to work today (Longwood, FL) . No real point unless UPS picks up and I don't think they will.

So question: Is UPS operating in Central FL today?

Thanks for all for the info from everyone.

GLT

P.S. Very thankful here. Best wishes to those not as lucky.

Up here in Port Charlotte it's still gusting in the 50's temp outside is 62 degrees. Just talked to my dad in Naples. They lost 4 or 5 trees and lost part of the air conditioning on the building . He said the back side was far worse. My uncle in Port St. Lucie said winds there were well over 100. He lost his fence, neighbor lost a huge tree and a trampoline slammed into a building.

We are getting pounded in Melb. Worst we've had all morning. Wind is really whipping with lots of rain. The pine trees on the golf course are leaning like crazy. I'm sure it's nothing like those in the south are seeing though.

Maitland checking in - agree that this is nothing like last year. Charley went right over us, no power for 5 days. This (Wilma) has been gusty at times, lots of rain, and my unscientific measurement based on how low the pool was yesterday, and the fact it's almost overflowing now, is that we've had about 3-4 inches of rain. It's gusting again now, and cool temps.

Our hearts go out to everyone in South Fla. We really do feel your pain.

One thing we all know from going through quite a few of these things is that it depends on where you are in relation to these bands as they travel across. When "Orlandoman" posted it looked on the RADAR as through they were getting a heavy band through his area in east Orlando, and it looked like they were adjacent to or under a flood watch. It could very well been "almost like Charlie" to him (from an Orlando perspective, that is). Good luck to all of you!

Absolutely correct. Tampa has sunshine we are 40 miles to the east and we have rain and wind still....It is the position of the storm. One person's storm is another persons good luck in Florida.

Michgirl,

having a grand old time here in Cocoa Beach. Constant winds for about the last 30minutes and some good gust. On the positive side, I wont need to trim the palm fronds off the washingtonians for a few more months since most of the old fronds are blown away.

hopefully only a couple more hours. From the 11am NHC report, we are about 90NM from the center of Wilma.

hoping this thing goes more ENE than NE

New warning? [Re: Geoff]
      #62962 - Mon Oct 24 2005 11:33 AM

Just recently scrolling at the bottom of the tv screen was a list of counties under a hurrinace warning including mine Pasco. Other counties are Manatee, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Hernando, Sarasota, De Soto. I thought as of about an hour ago, conditions were improving on the west coast. Is there more going on than I thought? Several stations are scrolling......
