Rainy and blustery here in Plant City at 9am. Temperature is a cool 71. Not as much wind as I expected at this time...we may be on the fringe of the 'eye' of this cyclone. Airport showing gusts to only 30 right now and looking out my back windows, I have no reason to doubt that. Birds are at the feeders....

Over here in Pinellas County: It has been a morning of moderate to heavy rain and gusty winds. My maximum gust was 36.5 mph at 7:25 AM. I’m still getting gusts to 20 - near 30. Unobstructed weather stations on the beaches and at St Pete/ Clearwater airport have had gusts to 60+ mph. The rainfall forecast is verifying for 2 - 4 inches. I’ve had 2.34” since Midnight. My lowest relative pressure was 994.7mb at 8:36 AM.

2.8" for today and 5.4" for the event in SW Seminole County. Almost lost power about 7 times, but it's still on. Winds have shifted to have more of a southeast component. Hard to say max winds since my anemometer is too close to houses and trees. Various small branches and debris are all over. Have not ventured out to assess the area yet.

3.3 inches so far, with most of the heavy rains going from 7am to 11, Seems to be slowing down now.
The yard is underwater, but hopefully most of it will get absorbed. Just cleared a drain so water can drain into my pond.
Winds started getting heavy around 7am, but peaks only show around 30mph. If I was in an open area, it may have it the 40 that was predicted. Looking at the radar and plots, I may be in the eye now, but hard to tell. Temp is 68F, 99% humidity, pressure 29.2

At noon: 76F, overcast (with light drizzle at times), wind SE 20-25 mph / gusts 30-35 mph. As of noon, received an additional 0.42" 2-day Nicole event rainfall total: 2.70".

While I personally did not observe (estimated) sustained wind greater than 60 mph, nor any gusts in excess of 70 mph at my location 600' from the Atlantic Ocean in Daytona Beach Shores, winds may have been higher early in the morning prior to 4 am (when I woke up from a sound sleep!). Media has reported highest wind gust in Daytona Beach and Daytona Beach Shores at 77 and 85 mph respectively.

From Media:

NASA left its $4.1 billion Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft for the Artemis I mission to the moon on the launch pad at Kennedy Space Center to ride out Hurricane Nicole, noting that it could withstand sustained winds of 85 mph at 60 feet high when vertical at Launch Complex 39-B.

Hurricane Nicole ended up testing those safety limits.

The weather sensors on a tower at LC 39-B record wind data among other things at various heights every five minutes, posted to KSCweather.ksc.nasa.gov.

The SLS stands 321 feet tall and the 600-foot-tall tower sensors are as high as 459 feet up. At 4:15 a.m., one sensor recorded a maximum gust of 100 mph. The average wind at that time was 85 mph.

At lower heights, though, the wind was not as severe at that time. At 134 feet at that time, a sensor recorded a gust of 81 mph and sustained winds of 67 mph.

The tower’s tallest sensors saw gusts between 90-100 mph several times between 3 and 5 a.m. but sustained winds more in the 50-60 mph range closer to the ground.

Now at 3.03" for the day and 5.64 for the event in SW Seminole County. Surprisingly still experiencing strong gusts from the S and SSW.

4.06 inches, 69 degrees, steady SSE winds with 20 mph gusts. Clouds seem to be less dense now, so more sunlight is coming through. Not as gloomy as this morning. Hoping the storm is far North by the time it sweeps more bands over the state. I suspect the roads need time to drain.
