...and the forecast reads warmer temps, which is very welcome, but no rainfall at all. That 8.98 inches of rain will probably be the February grand total for precip at TPA >sighs<
It's been cloudy all day today thus far in Tampa Bay, the first such cloudy day for me here since early January. I missed the 8.5 inch rainfall day while in Pensacola, and asides the cold front/squall line from the week after that, it's been bone dry...
[COLOR="Orange"]It rained in St. Petersburg today, what a concept?!

0.04 inches reported this afternoon.[/COLOR]

[FONT="Tahoma"]Last night around 3 am or so a squall line blew through the area from the northwest. Unfortunately I was laboring with a cold last night (still am now) and could barely function enough to even sit up and check it out. The doors that face the south however started rattling and one blew open. So I had to get up and push it back closed and lock it. Talk about a nice gust front. As far as I know it was mainly rain and wind with no thunder. According to the daily almanac 0.27 inches of rain fell. Now it's clearing and brisk out with northwesterly winds bringing down some Canadian air. Highs today are expected in the mid 60s. I also found out that the gulf and bays are running in the mid to upper 60s too.[/FONT]
[COLOR="Orange"]Dry and boring weather continues for Central Florida, makes me wonder if Tampa is a desert for half the year... /bored

[COLOR="Orange"][FONT="Tahoma"]Here's a fire advisory issued today for the Tampa area. Note that a cold front moved through with cooler temperatures, yet nary a damn drop of rain! I hate those dry fronts and that's all we have been getting around here lately. The forecast remains the same as it was when I posted it on the weekend, more dry weather with no rain in the forecast for the weekend either. Boooooooorrrriiiinnnnnggg! :mad:
