Julia Conditions in Your Area

With 93L passing through Florida it's worth starting a thread for you to report weather conditions where you are located. Here in northwest Melbourne we are in a ring a thunderstorms that surround the weak 1012MB tropical low that is slowly moving through our area. No significant wind but 0.40" of rain in a brief squall.

Here in Daytona Beach Shores (DBS) one block inland from the Sunglow Pier, observed sustained 20 mph gusting to 30+ this morning. This system's close proximity down the coast to the south is producing more wind and much larger surf than Hermine's effects. Nearly 1/2" of precip (submitted at 7am for CoCoRaHS station FL-VL-42) was measured from several brief pre-dawn rounds of squally showers, Only brief light sprinkles since, but still quite breezy. And of course, today is trash day, so lots of small wind-blown debris.

93L no longer being monitored as an Invest (according to the Weather Channel). Wind has increased to sustained upper 20's, gusting to tropical storm force at 11 am, with light rain and frequent thunder heard to the east out over the Atlantic. Lots of wind-blown debris scuttering down the streets. Expecting to loose power if wind increases more.

Non-named systems with tropical DNA such as this "weak" low pummeling Florida's east coast north of the Cape today (and the one that deluged Louisiana in August) can have a significant local impact. Still hope for a lot more rain out of this (instead of wind) given the 10" deficit this summer.

At noon: Wind has increased from the east to sustained 30-35 mph with gusts exceeding tropical storm force. Driving horizontal moderate to heavy rain in a band of precipitation moving in off the ocean. Lots of small windblown debris (and trash cans!).

Radar continues to show a circulation moving NNW up the coast, with the "center" now near New Smyrna Beach. The no-name tropical-origin low is reaming this area!

Wind has relaxed considerably following the passage of the mid-day squall line, now SE 8 mph. Tropical storm force wind gusts evidenced from the position of widespread tree vegetative debris on the ground in relation to the trees it blew out of. Still a few light showers in the area. RF total (since midnight) 0.88". Much greater 2-4" totals noted by weather observers in Edgewater area of South Volusia County. The surf built considerably all morning, and is now a rough/choppy/drifty short-period 3-5' E/SE swell, with the larger waves breaking well past the end of the Sunglow pier.

South Ponte Vedra Beach [KFLSOUTH11] now up to 37mph sustained gusting to 41. Salt Run KFLSTAUG19 (Saint Augustine) is now sustained at 40mph.

I also read of a station along the beach near New Smyrna with sustained 43 gusting to 57mph between 11am and noon.

Barely over one inch (1.03").at my location in Daytona Beach Shores on 9/13 and no rain since midnight. Maybe the horizontal nature of the rainfall during the fiercest squall around noon had something to do with the low total. Locations only a few miles away to the south measured 2 to nearly 4".
The June to mid-September precip deficit at my location is around 9". Hopefully the moisture trailing Julia over east-central Florida will combine with afternoon heating and a weak sea breeze to induce a convective band that pushes up the coast late in the day and adds another inch (or two) of much needed rain here.

Hi all,

Long time lurker, seldom poster...I live aboard a Soverel 36 cutter on Skull Creek, and always pay attention to this site during hurricane season.

We've been getting a ton of rain and t-storms since yesterday, and today's gusts are pushing close to 30 mph, nominally out of the E.

We're expecting to see 6-10 inches locally over the next 24 hours, and since we're "The Lowcountry," that comes with flooding, downed trees and interruptions to services.

Other than that...Julia is just a big rain event at this point. And...we really needed the H20.

Cheers,
Anton

Noteworthy comments from the NWS Melbourne morning discussion:

".CLIMATE...A late shower containing a brief but heavy downpour
between midnight and 100 AM EDT (1100 PM and midnight for purposes
of the local "climate day") pushed the daily rainfall total at the
Melbourne International Airport to 3.51", which was a record for the
date. Higher amounts appeared to have fallen in the local area, as
evidenced in the local road flooding many locations experienced.
The NWS Office, less than a mile to the NW, picked up 4.21 Tuesday."
