A place to talk about weather here in Northwest Florida.

==

Last night we had a squall line come through with a good 30 minutes of moderate to heavy rain. Even heard one rumble of thunder. Temperatures were the warmest they've been in a week and half too, with a high of 73 and 0.40 inches of rain.

I watched the radar as the line progressed east, noting that it disintegrated once passing through the Gulf and Calhoun County areas. Unfortunately it looks like no rain for Central Florida from this latest frontal passage.


Much cooler today with only 51 degrees at the moment. Forecast calls for mid 60s, but I doubt that is going to occur.

I'd say any from Tallahassee westward. The official Florida map puts Tallahassee in North Central Florida, but who really breaks down the state into that many quadrants? Otherwise you're talking about Crestview, Defuniak Springs, Panama City, Chipley, Pensacola, Ft. Walton Beach, Milton, Freeport, Quincy, etc. etc.

Haha, I've thought of the one in Mass (I have a good family friend there), but you pronounce it differently up there! Quin-zee

Last night we were at 70 degrees (Hurlburt Field) while Tampa was at 54! Also the highs in the area of 77 and 78 matched Miami and Key West for highest in the state. Gotta love that southwesterly flow!

Nothing tornadic, severe, or even thundery with the latest frontal system passage. Lots of rain, mainly the "steady soaking" kind. 1.32 inches of rain total from the system. Now its cloudy with temperatures on the decrease.
