I'm back after Wilma. I have plenty of stories, pictures, and video to share. For now, I wanted to post the awesome data I collected during the storm from my home weather station. I am NWS Storm Spotter number 41 in Palm Beach County.
Here are my storm statistics:
Front Eyewall: 9:03 a.m. Wind SSE Sustained wind 77 mph Gust to 103 mph
Back Eyewall: 11:54 a.m. Wind W/WNW Sustained wind 90 mph Gust to 118 mph
Lowest Pressure 28.15" / 953 mb at 9:58 a.m.
Total Rainfall 1.54"
Of interest, I also show a temperature and dew point drop of 8 degrees in the 30 minutes prior to the strongest winds at 11:54 a.m. I have a Davis weather station that actually survived the storm, but had lots of damage to my home, such as roof, fence, screen enclosure, satellite dish, trees, etc. My front door even blew in at the height of the storm.
