Hurricane Irma obs

Recommended Posts

Outer rain bands are reaching the keys and mainland Florida with winds, waves and decreasing pressures.

 Any locals riding this out, tell us what you see!

Florida peeps, post your obs here while you still have power.  Don't be a "er mah gawd cat 5 bombs away" fool and take unnecessary risks getting a pic or vid.

i live 100 feet off the north end of Bayshore Blvd and not sure what I'll find when I return.  Got out of dodge before sunrise Friday.

With family in Citrus County and expecting deteriorating conditions after noon, and hurricane gusts by midnight.  No sleep tonight.

Safe and secure and ready.  This is how you do prep for a storm like Irma:

Getting the first healthy band of the day moving thru here in Citrus County.  Relatively high elevation for FLA, at 110', and tons of trees in the neighborhood and along the roads.  Ironically could end up stranded here and unable to get back to Tampa for a bit.  Some chance of catching the eye overhead after midnight.

Checking in from Chuluota (east of Orlando). Will report what I can while I have power. Nothing but light rain and breezes so far.

You have a pretty healthy band rotating in from the SE within the next hour or so. Stay safe.

checking in from Trinity/New Port Richey just outside of Tampa/Clearwater about 7 miles inland. Getting the heaviest bands we've seen yet at the moment with pretty good rain and gust probably about 20 mph

This is the 8th hurricane I've been impacted by to some extent (Elena '85, Erin '95, Floyd '99, Charley, Frances, Jeanne '04, and Matthew '16). It's interesting how every storm has its own distinct personality.

So far Irma, in my location, has been a very wet storm, occasional gusts but nothing to TS strength yet, but mostly how dark it is - thick low clouds have been constant.

Curious how the evening progresses. I lost 8 trees on my property to Matthew. I got one pine leaning precariously across my driveway now.

To the Central Florida posters, be safe tonight. Things aren't done yet.

Amazing difference for us in the extreme W FL Panhandle. Temp is 69 and mostly sunny. Light to moderate NE wind. This shot says it all.

Mid 60s with overcast and breezy conditions for most of the day here in Tallahassee. Fantastic weather, really, aside from some drizzle here and there.  The last few days have had great weather here.  We'll see what happens overnight.
