Squalls And More Rain, Lots Of Rain

On radar a bright red and yellow band of rain passed overhead. It was raining real hard here for about 30 minutes. Rain and lots of wind. It’s hard to think about sleeping now. The wind is blowing out of the Northeast.

At 1:00 AM wind velocity is steady 24 mph with gusts to 38 mph according to the official hourly data from the National Weather Service.

I for one, will be glad when this thing is over. It’s not bad right now the rain has stopped but the wind continues. It is now making that whistling sound that wasn’t apparent before the squall line passed by. The radio reports from around the state have high winds from Miami to Jacksonville. This thing is so big it’s covering the state. It’s moving again at about 5 mph. The eye of the storm is 60 miles across and from what I saw on the radar it looks like the eye is moving West for now. It’s a long night ahead.
