Being in the Ocean City area of Ft Walton, I can say that it did indeed rain hard here

We have had nearly 2 inches of rain so far.

In addition...the pressure is going up now...according to my Weatherbug.

well i was out on the west end of PCB,..... took some great pics/video as the low was passing by....It was a very unique site to see... clearly could see upper and lower part of the right side of the center of circulation.... Love ACCUwx on the phone with all the data... hell i got the Tor. warnings as they were coming out... before half the local wx crawls picked up on it!!

checking the pics now... see if i can post any!

Here's a shot looking WSW at 1549 from central PCB.

Also had a "Aircraft Fly by to the south of me.. heading WNW?..... trying to see if the pic comes out...**** was not a jet... looked like a C-130? roughly a few thousands feet above the surface

Wish i was on I-10 around 5PM

so.. just checking up with the last few statements from NHC.... the recon data indicated that there were TS force winds to the east of the system.... but as recon left... the storms dissipated, therefore they held on the Upgrade... but in post analysis in the winter, they may go back and call it a TS if there is enough data where it came ashore to classifly it a TS???.... I know that where it came ashore there are ALOT of military WX sensors... there is a place called Okaloosa Island where Eglin Air Force base has some equipment/buildings for there range there on the island... right along HWY 98 and are right on the GOM.... i HAVE SEEN passing by that there is wx sensors on a few of the towers (radio towers).... question is where they working at the time and will the data be available to NOAA/NHC?

If Eglin's weather stations weren't working, I'll be surprised. There should be plenty of information to determine the intensity of this system at landfall, given where landfall was.

the wind around he center have really died down...i am about 10 miles south of where the center is currently located, and there is no wind...none..it has been calm for about an hour..i'm sure the winds are stronger in the bands, but this is a very weak system..the rain gauge here at Oriole Beach shows .2 inches today

Wow... Impressive.

By the way.. the final advisory on TD Ten has just been issued by the NHC. Advisories will continue to be issued by HPC beginning at 5am ET.

here's a wx station that looks reliable to where the system came ashore...

http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KFLSHALI1

srcoll down to look at text data... pressure 1003mb/29.65in as it passed? 1825z time frame... notice winds change.... run about 15-20 mph then down to 5 then back up... from the 180 from before

Destin City Hall had a high wind speed of 34.0mph... and a high sustained 1min wind of 20mph Lowest pressure 1004mb

My wife and I spent this evening at the Crab Shack on the waterfront in Fort Walton Beach. I took a quick snapshot around the time of landfall, just after the worst of the squalls passed us by. It's not the highest quality image, but then again I'm not the highest quality photographer.

Well, 93L beat my 0% and my 15% chance odds of becomming a depression. It was pretty lucky to become that, but after subtropical designation and tropical designation...it definately did not become a tropical storm and there will be no post storm analysis needed.

No "Jerry" Springer argument about that (trying to be somewhat humerous). The end result of the weather was the same all in all...Rain, some small winds, and definately some regretable tornados here and there so far. I hope for no more of those. Otherwise, there were a few gusts here and there across Florida that approached and/or surpassed tropical storm force. But nothing sustained to gain any merit for a TS designation. Not much different that a roll of the dice with an afternoon thunderstorm...and we've all had some excitement there at some point in time. As for those radio towers, they are all very high up. I am sure they will show higher winds, but nothing to support a tropical storm at 30 feet or less with respect to sustained winds. We will find out in the Mobile Weather Post Storm Report. But in particular...I know of the major tower on Okalossa Island off of Highway 98...I saw it after Hurricane Ivan. It is a very, very tall radio tower on the beach. It is a famous one from the WWII era, but I believe it is still in operation. If a weather station on it is above 30 feet, the data will be useful, but not representative of surface designations that give a system a name...In general, the system remained too difuse to earn that name and TD10will remain just that...a TD. Now, it is time for the Northern Gulf to take a look at the Carribean Sea. Something may pop in your direction from there...

Yep.... i know the next area to the south has my attention... has for about 2-3 days.... WOW.. this squall coming through PCB right, i just got a 23 mph wind gust..

Nice photos from FWB.... from my view i was on the beach (central PCB).... i had a really nice view of the center as it passed to my south.... the sun was out and vis was AMAZING really good... it looked like a huge sphere... i watched it for about 4-5 hrs as it passed.. (facing south..it moved left to right for me)... looking to the top... i would assume roughly 40k... the anvil had a nice spread out, in a circular motion... you could see some nice cumulonimbus formation on the eastern side feeder band close to the center... below underneath the cirrus clouds...

I respectfully dissagree, the storm brought floods and some minor damage to my area, I live on the East Coast of FL.. I believe this was at least a Subtropical Storm when it hit here.. also, this was interesting before it made landfall at Cape Canaveral, FL. Jesse Ferrel (Accuweather Meteorologist) points this out the day after the storm hit here.

"The most impressive buoy data out of this storm was really yesterday from SPGF1, east of Florida. Pressure fell to 29.78 while wind spiked to 44 mph, gusts to 48 mph -- Tropical Storm strength."

It deffinatly felt like a TS here in Palm Coast, but it did not have all it's characteristics or one, certainly did not look like one either.. That's why I'd say it was "Subtropical" in nature with 45 mph at landfall. We got the worst flooding Palm Coast has basically ever seen, very rare to.. I don't think we'll see flooding like that in a while, I could be wrong though.

Now that TD10 has moved out of our way...it's time to take a look at what's going on in the southern/southwestern GOM. This sytem is allowing for a lot of moisture to come into the state of Florida...so you Floridians' --- keep your eyes and ears tuned in!

I was looking at the closest bouy:
http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=42056\

The lowest pressure in the past few hours was 29.85 with wind speed of 31 knots out of the SE.
Definetly want to watch this mess.

I have to say that as long as this moisture stays just that -- moisture -- with little to no development, it's welcomed as a real drought-buster for us and the entire SE. We can take a few more of these "non-systems" over the next couple of months and maybe it will put us back where we belong rain-wise.
