Erika Remnants effects in your area
      #95872 - Sat Aug 29 2015 09:05 PM

What are the effects of Erika;s remnants (and combining with the stream associated with the cutoff upper level low in the gulf) In Orlando next to Universal, it's raining about an inch an hour now (see cfhc's orlando personal weather station)

Although not directly related to Erika yet, the combined stream of moisture in the Gulf and Erika is a setup for flooding rainfall, as most of central and south Florida is under a flood watch.

Orlando webcam stream is running

And pointed at a weird angle because of rain and nighttime. It's overlooking lake Marsha toward the backside of Universal Studios Florida. (lit up structure on right is the employee parking garage for it)

Conditions here in Port Charlotte

2" of rain since 7 p.m. with frequent lightning (fried my router).
Regional power outage of less than an hour.
Winds NE 13mph with earlier gust to 26mph.

Nearest web cam with night visibility is at Pineland Marina on Pine Island.

Survived Charley at Cat 4 under a staircase. Won't do that again. I watch SW Florida and Abaco primarily.

Had a fast moving thunderstorm come in from the southeast off the water this evening with 0.59". Rainfall total for the past four days is 5.91". The ground is saturated and ponds and drainage ditches are full.

Gulfport, Florida at 8:20 pm, Sunday August 30th:

Gave up on anything by 6:00 pm, cooked a couple steaks on the grill, and then at 7:00 pm it started raining and so far we've had 2.3 inches in an hour and 20 minutes.

Tropical systems feel much different than the typical Summer afternoon thunderstorms, and totally different than the storms that come in a wave with cold fronts. There is that "tropical" warmth and depth that other storms don't have.

Erika is giving us a kiss...
