Irma was downgraded to a Tropical Storm around 7am this morning and we’re now feeling the effects from Irma here in Bay County. I’ve been seeing reports (I really need to get a descent weather station of my own) of winds steady around 20mph with gusts up to 36mph or so. Rain started around 6 hours ago (I was sleeping so I’m not really sure when it started) and so far at my rain gage on the east side of Callaway, I’ve received nearly 1″ so far. All in all, the effects from Irma should be minimal. One thing I’ve really been enjoying though is the cooler temperature. It’s 66 degrees outside now and I turned off my A/C yesterday and opened up the windows to let the cool air inside! It was perfect sleeping weather last night!
Right now they’re forecasting good weather tomorrow so as long as the winds didn’t mess up anyone’s landscaping we can make plans to continue photographing real estate for sale or rent! The forecast for the rest of the week shows a possible 50% chance of rain Thursday and Friday.
