Idalia Conditions in Your Area

Post to update Idalia related weather and event conditions around you. Hyper-local alerts, pictures, etc., and just check-in to let us know how you are.

Please stay safe. There are a few hurricanes I am not inclined to chase. Generally, this has more to do with things like terrain, roads, rivers, propensity for especially dangerous storm surge and flooding... For me, Idalia falls in this bucket. I skipped Katrina altogether, and kept a very safe distance from Harvey's exact landfall location, for two examples.

I have to say tonight is maybe the most beautiful evening we have had since last Spring or late Winter. Just gorgeous.

That scares me! LOL

Did you have to evacuate?

Re: Idalia Conditions in Your Area

We are not evacuating. We are about 30 miles inland in Pasco County and not in a flood zone.

Unrelated thunder and lightening storm that lit the sky with multiple power blips earlier this evening. Tomorrow will be evacuating inland to the town of Chiefland due to being in a MH surrounded by trees and in a flood zone. Our place is 25mi from Cedar Key Marina and a couple miles through the woods as the crow flies from the Suwannee River.

Re: Idalia Conditions in Your Area

A robust coma-shaped line of t-storms just blasted Daytona Beach, east Volusia County as it came up the coast from the south around 6:45 pm. Torrential/brief rain (0.40" in 10 minutes) with a wind gust in the upper 30's mph.

Re: Idalia Conditions in Your Area

It is very pleasant here in Gulfport right now. A good breeze so we can feel the swirl, palms swaying and live oaks dancing, but no problems and light rain. There is a band on its way but looking at PWSs and SailFlow there is hardly a TS gust to worry about.

Just saw a flash of lightning to the west.

High Tide for a cycle or two might be a concern, but wind is a non-issue.

Water is rising in Gulfport. We are definitely going to have a surge for the books before tomorrow is over.

Currently it's 250 AM 30 August. I am in Tallahassee and the initial outer rain band hit earlier in the night. we're expecting the main bands to hit any time now. it's been too calm for what i know is coming. I fully expect to lose power, as purdham Generating station is 6 miles from the coast. and produces a large part of city power.

Will try to update as network and power are willing

SW Seminole county here. PWS shows event rainfall at 1.04 inches. Wind and gust info are not reliable as my PWS is surrounded by large trees.

Re: Idalia Conditions in Your Area

Just talked to my 90-yr old dad in Brunswick GA in the Golden Isles. They are in a nasty outer band with torrential rain and wind SE 30 mph (gusting to 45) coming into the coast off the Atlantic from the SE. He measured 2" of rain yesterday (not associated with Idalia) in a 2-hr long, relatively isolated moderate rain shower that trained over his location. Based on the eye's eastward jog into Keaton Beach a little while ago, I expect he will see conditions continue to go down hill the rest of the morning, with hurricane force wind gusts likely when the eye tracks through SE GA.

Re: Idalia Conditions in Your Area

A strong band of rain and high winds just came through here in San Antonio, FL (30 miles N of Tampa). I think from the radar presentation the next band is hours off. We got one and a half inches of rain from that event. We will see how much the next band brings.

EDIT: It's hard to believe that we are getting rain and wind from a tropical system whose center is 200 miles from us.
