My original post from earlier...moved it here to the appropriate thread.

We are now under a tornado watch in central Florida. Here in Pinellas County, I am awaiting the arrival of a strong squall which is just offshore. NWS issued a special marine warning for a waterspout 13 miles southwest of Indian Rocks Beach. I am now hearing some rumbles of thunder.

The wind impact from Barry has been very minor so far in this area. I expect that we will see tropical storm force wind gusts around midday as the wind shifts onshore and the center passes a little to the north. I will head out to the beach to quantify the wind speed and survey the surge at that time.

*Just noticed a 38mph wind gust at Sand Key. Winds are still light a couple miles inland as heavy rain is now falling. More like a frontal squall line than anything else. Will probably be like Gordon in 2000 with most of the wind later today after the rain moves through.

Current conditions at Sand Key

sitting here in Parrish and the light rain has returned, and the wind has become more frisky and gusty...Pressure is 29.62 and steady...Waiting to see if that one band of heavy rain and wind will expand east towards us, it seems to be creeping closer as the actual center continues to move NE at 20.
I will post again in an hour.

Here in northern Indian River County we truly appreciate all the rain. Been raining almost since it started knocked over some "For Rent/Sale" signs, but that's all I've seen while walking the dog in the rain. Power did blink off/on just once. Overall, I think Barry is a welcomed visitor to the area.

Gulfport, FL - A strong squall has been over us for about 20 minutes and the rain is intense. My backyard is flooded and the street in front of my house is as full of water as I have ever seen it. (Moved here last September.)

Thunder is sporadic, but impressive. The wind gusts to just over 20 in the area so far.

here on the Barrier Island in Vero Beach we got pounded by rain overnight. I've not been able to run my pool skimmer for more than a month due to low water level. Today the pool is full. We had OVER 4 INCHES overnight.
Hooray!
this morning it is cloudy, with some fading sun and a light breeze....no rain.

Barry was a quick and welcome visitor for the opening of the 2007 season.

I live in Pasco county (Land O Lakes) which is just north of Tampa and it looks like the path of Barry will come over my house. I'm only worried about possible tornadoes. Rain was slow to start with on Friday afternoon but from about 4 pm friday until now a nice steady rain has been falling. Absolutely no wind at this moment, just beautiful rain.

Tampa (Oldsmar) area - Brief periods of heavy rain, but not very windy at all. My $4 rain gauge reports around 3 to 3 1/2 inches, so far.

ok, back again and the center of Barry is immediately to our west... the heaviest weather has missed this area of northeast Manatee county to our north, sun is starting to emerge and the cloud cover is breaking, but winds remain frisky and gusty from the west now ...pressure never dropped below 29.62.. the chance for the squall line to continue into this area is diminishing as the heavy rain lifts to the north...there is another band right on the periphery of the center that may blow through here as it passes by. so far not more than 1.5 inches overnight.

Well, the sun just came out here in w. Charlotte county, but the wind has REALLY picked up. It's ripping some pretty good gusts. I don't have a wind gauge, so I can't tell you exactly what. But it's picked up.

Low of 29.49 here in Spring Hill about an hour ago, now back up to 29.51. Some wind gusts in the upper 20's, but almost no rain since daybreak. Looks like heavier stuff both west and east of here.

Beautiful sunshine and turquoise waters out here offshore from Pine Island, and the winds have settled down to 20 kts or so.
The tide is extremely high, and we're still 3 hours from full. the yard is submerged, and I guess I'll find out if the shrubs I planted this Spring are truly salt-tolerant. ;^)
The night was a wild one, with wind and slashing rains, but around 4:30 AM a beautiful full moon lit everything up so I could see that all the boats were where they're supposed to be.
We are very thankful for the rain.
Welcome to the 2007 Storm Season...

Here in Plant City, we've had close to 2 and 1/2 inches of rain. No wind to speak of right now and a light drizzle going on. Had some good quick downpours earlier today.

Here's hoping we all have a safe and relatively quiet hurricane season.

Rain gauge has 2.75in in it this morning. We had steady rain most of the night and missed most of that really strong band that hit Pinellas county. Barometer is showing 29.53in which overall improves my opinion of my cheap barometer. Not much wind although I can hear some swirling in the trees. Just a light mist/drizzle (what I call TS rain) falling now. The LLC is supposed to be very close to the northwest of us right now and a small band of light rain is forming to move over us. Great rain event!! Maybe we could do exactly this again next week??

Here in St Lucie County, FL - Port St Lucie - about 35 miles east of Lake Okeechobee on the east coast - we're getting gusts at 35mph and a steady south wind at 23mph.
Rainfall was near 5.47" and has pretty much stopped; and we're also seeing bouts of sunshine yet by far, it is mostly cloudy and quite windy.

I had 5.5 inches of rain here in Seminole in western Pinellas County overnight and this morning. I ventured out to the beach in southern Pinellas County this morning and actually experienced the "eye" of Barry--really just a period of calm and clear skies. As of now, the winds are gusting to 25mph at my house with cloudy conditions.

Out of Barry, we had a couple of decent showers -- one Friday, one Saturday -- but mostly a lot of drizzle and light rain. The mid-level center of Barry headed this way and kept us from getting the gip entirely rainwise.

It was a typical tropical landfall day -- cloudy, breezy, cool, and damp. About 0.4" total and a high today in the low 70s.
