Looks like we're gonna get a little wind today.

It sure would be nice to see Skeetobite's local forecast map right now. It will really hit some populated areas in Hillsbourough county (Tampa's county).

Update from Tampa, in Temple Terrace, winds are gusting heavily- getting worse by the hour. Probably close to 50mph at times, but still more occasional. By some miracle, we have electricity, but it is flickering. We lost it for 4 days in Frances quite early on- go figure. Well, the power is flickering and about to go, hope this post makes it- see you after the storm! I wish everyone good luck!

Winds are steadily increasing here in Pinellas County. We are now experiencing regular gusts of 50-55mph. The current pressure is 29.29in and falling. The main CDO is less than one hour from my location. I will attempt a trip to the coastline early this afternoon to photograph the storm and take wind readings when the winds become onshore. If power is still on, I will report back here.

We're steady at 35 mph with multiple gusts to low 50's. I expect to see the wind start to increasing shortly. Pressure is falling. I'm not going to mention our power situation... don't want to jink it!

Here in NW Orange County, it's pretty gusty. We've seen some of the strongest gusts we've had with all three of the hurricanes. We just had a huge potted plant on the back deck go down. Didn't bring it in because I can't lift it. It's at least 100 pounds. It didn't move during the first two.
We should do a role call to see who's still here.

Actually, Jeanne will be seriously weakened by being over land for 16 hours plus. Once the storm goes back over water, it takes time to regenerate. Plus, the gulf shelf waters are relatively cool (upwelling from Ivan), about 79 deg, so it doesn't have the high octane juice like the gulf stream to work with.

Here in Lakeland, we have power at my house still. We lost it in the last storm and they fixed it back better than new. Lost cable briefly. We have a lot of branches down, shingles in the yard and the winds are still gusting to hurricane force. It largely looks identical to what they are showing on Television from where ever you may be watching or reading. We are about 40 statute miles from Tampa city limits by automobile. I am not sure what that means to a hurricane since it can go across curves etc. We have had some tense moments here, but we are still ok. It is too bad to do more than stand afar from windows and try to see anything. I am not looking forward to the backside of this storm which we will get and the tornadoes that will come if the eye gets to the gulf. Last time with Frances after it made it to the gulf we got our greatest tornado threats. I know we had some pass over us even if they did not touch down this time. A good day's sleep would be nice since I m expect to show up for work tomorrow. Thats the report from here. Will check back in two hours if anything new to report. Will be lurking if anyone has a question I can answer,.

Spent a night of fitful sleep. Starting around 4am, the wind really started howling, waking me up. Right now, winds are the worst they have been so far. Local mets say we are recording gust to 80mph. Rain is torrential. I would say this is worse than Frances....but not as bad as Charley was..so far. When Charley roared through, conditions got so bad that we huddled in a hallway, fearing the roof was coming off. So far, things haven't gotten to that point.

East Orange county here. Have had a few gusts to 75mph.
Seems to be the strongest right now...
Only some minor tree damage so far (Charlie took care of the trees...) Looks like Orlando might make it through this in pretty fair shape. Good luck to everyone!

All is well in Naples. We were, once again, on the outskirts. Winds still gusting in the 40's, still getting some rain showers from time to time.

Sothwest Seminole County here. Winds are terrible. Cells of one of the middle-outter bands keep rolling in. Lost power for a few seconds. This is worse than Charley and Charley came through only about 5 miles to my east.

JEANNE MAKES LANDFALL IN FLORIDA AND CONTINUES MOVING INLAND


As of 8:00 a.m. EDT Saturday cat 2 hurricane Jeanne was located near 27.7 north and 81.5 west or about 25 miles east-southeast of Bartow, Florida. Maximum sustained winds are near 115 mph with higher gusts and Jeanne is heading slightly north of west-northwest at 12 mph. Central pressure is measured at 960 millibars or 28.35inches. Jeanne made landfall at 11:50 PM on September 25th near the south end of Hutchinson Island just east of Stuart. This is about 5 miles or so north of where Hurricane Frances made landfall 3 weeks ago. Jeanne was a Category 3 hurricane at the time of landfall, making this the first time since 1950 that Florida has been hit directly by two Category 3 or higher hurricanes. The eye itself looks to be attempting to compacting inward gradually. The center of Jeanne will likely track into Hillsborough County. The center of Jeanne will likely pass very close to Tampa. Storm surge will continue to be a problem south of Tampa Bay and along the west and south side of Tampa Bay this morning. Residents in the Tampa area can expect gusts of 50 to 85 mph as Jeanne passes through. Tornadoes will remain a threat north of Interstate 4. Locally heavy rains will continue to cause flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas.

Sarasota, Florida 8:47 AM, Strong TS level winds since 6:30 AM. Stronger than Charley or Frances. Power is fluctuating. Eye is about 65 miles Northeast of us, near four corners (Polk, Hardee, Manatee, and Hillsborough Counties). Gusts to 60 mph. Surprisingly little rain so far, less than ¼”. Very exciting weather event! Good luck to Tampa. Central Florida Hurricane is terrific.

Hernando? and St. Marks?
Tampa? and Steinhatchee?
Crystal River? and Cedar Key?

Who knows?
But as long as it is east of me! I am weary....
