Central Florida - ChessieStorm - 01-14-2008 11:22 PM

I was in Port Richey on Sunday and it poured with lightning and thunder. I would suspect the same in Spring Hill since that was the same line that moved down from Hernando County.

Thunderstorm in progress! A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for Polk and western Orange around 6:45 pm, based upon the high winds associated with the squall line barreling eastward at 55-72 mph. Some heavy rain and about 50 or so flashes of lightning, but mainly wind. The radio was interrupted around 6 with a tornado warning for Sumter. Otherwise these were short lived storms, with the peak lasting maybe 10-15 minutes. I'll take what I can get for January though!

Hey we've had almost 2.25 inches since Thursday. We'll take what we can get this time of year.

Though some in Spring Hill may have had isolated damages from storms at 5:30-6:00 p.m. New Port Richey seems to have taken the worst of the damage I've heard, but no injuries.

I've hardly seen the sun at all in the last week and I swear we've had about 3 or 4 days with a solid amount of rainfall, but the aiport only shows 0.22 and 0.72 besides two days of rain. I'm out toward Ocoee though, which probably makes a big difference in the amount of reported rainfall at MCO versus what fell here.

Now the winds are howling (NW 17 with gusts to 24) and the temp is down to 55 already :eek:

Anyway, some storm reports from tonight are out:

01/19/2008 0707 PM

Orlando, Orange County.

Thunderstorm wind gust m41 mph, reported by ASOS.


ASOS observation korl Orlando executive Arpt., Peak wind

Orlando, Orange County.

Thunderstorm wind gust m49 mph, reported by ASOS.


ASOS observation at Orlando international Arpt, peak wind
25043kts 49 mph.

Much to my surprise, we received a lot of heavy rain in the wee hours of the morning, enough to wake me out of my slumber. Looks like the airport also received a dumping with 1.16 inches of rain! This is the first Winter where I've seen multiple days of real rain since moving to this part of the state in early '06.


Central Florida - Alex - 01-26-2008 02:06 PM

More clouds, more showers. This has been the wettest January in three years!



Central Florida - ChessieStorm - 01-28-2008 10:48 AM

We've had over 5 inches here (almost 2 inches above normal) for January. Wettest in a while.

Sure helped the grass get going again, but now that we've had a ton of frost here this morning it will all go brown again.


Central Florida - Alex - 01-28-2008 09:25 PM

Even though the lows were supposed to only be around 40, there was ice on my car this morning. MCO however reported a low of 44.


Central Florida - Alex - 02-19-2008 10:14 PM

Lots of spotty showers and gusty winds yesterday, but alas, no thunderstorm activty to report. Some winds in downtown Orlando gusted to 35 mph, even without the aid of a nearby cell. Otherwise I'd say about 0.15 inches of rain fell here in west Orlando while the airport (MCO) netted just 0.04 inches.

Nice line moved through Ocala this morning. Unfortunately I had to work in it. Even a little thunder. 1.54 in the rain gauge.
