As of 5:00 am on June 7, my backyard weather station in Gulfport has measured 5.35 inches of rain and a high gust of 29 MPH since the effects of Tropical Storm Colin started here.

49th Street South Gulfport KFLGULF5

My weather station is somewhat protected from the wind by trees, so I prefer to check the Sail Flow wind measurements from Clam Bayou which is only a few blocks away and on the water. The Sail Flow weather station had recorded a 49 MPH gust at Clam Bayou yesterday at about 11:10 am before it lost its data and stopped recording. I would love to have known the wind speeds for the rest of the day, but fear that data will never be known.

SailFlow.com at Clam Bayou

Our power blinked a few times last night, but surprisingly never went out for more than a moment. That's pretty amazing considering that we tend to lose power almost every time there is a respectable gust of wind around here. I did see Duke Energy trucks working in the area, so perhaps we were just lucky and missed the outages.

It is still raining and my station is measuring gusts in the 20 MPH range this morning.

7:30 am update:

Now the rain total is 7.1 inches and it is still raining...

10:00 am update:

48 hour rain total from Colin is now 8.34 inches. I actually see a break in the clouds now, so maybe it is about over.

Here is a two minute clip taken yesterday from our front yard camera during one of the squalls that came through. It's not showing anything shocking, but gives an idea how the weather was for pretty much the entire day.

Ormond Beach conditions 6/07/17 at 0700 EDT:
Partly cloudy, barom 29.72 rising, temp 73, dewpt 71. Wind SW 15 mph gusting to 25 mph. New rain since midnight = 0.31", total Colin related rain so far = 1.83". I estimate our highest wind speed was in the 25-35 mph range. At least at my location Colin has been beneficial with much needed rain.

Have had torrential downpours most of the night. It was pouring when I went to bed about 12:30am, then at 6am and when I got up at 7:30. It finally tailed off about 9:30. Did not get a chance to check the rain gauge this morning so should have a pretty good amount when I get home later today.

My rain gauge had 5.4 inches in it from Monday evening at 5:00 pm until today at 3pm when the rain had all but stopped. That is a total of right around 7.2 in a little over 48 hours. That is pretty impressive and has to be in the top 5 of rainfall totals over a 48 hour span in the 29 years I have lived here in south Plant City. Water everywhere but no real major flooding. Looking at the tail end of the moisture trail from Colin for what may be here tomorrow...
