Remember now you can get the ground-based VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444
We now have fair skies with temperatures in the mid 50s at 0532 Saturday. Saturday through Monday should be mostly sunny with only a few scattered clouds at times, highs in the low 70s and lows in the low 50s through Sunday and highs in the mid 70s and lows in the mid 50s on Monday. The remnant rains of Irma may be coming in on Tuesday, with temps in the 60s under cloudy, rainy (70 POP) skies. Right now it looks like Irma will strike southern FL as a Cat 4 hurricane, and then run right up the spine of the state and move northward into Georgia and into the Tennessee valley thereafter. So Irma’s affects on our immediate area should be minor and non-damaging at best. Still though stay tuned for updates.
On Weatherbug at 0532 the radar is clear north of Florida at this time.
As of 0532 EDT, the data from the VP2 (coming from the ground radiation shield about 4 feet off the ground just under and out from the balcony), the Lakewood WXBug station and the USG VP2 station across the street are as follows :
