3:45 PM


Temp: 80 F

Condition: Severe Thunderstorm/Tornado

Wind: S at 58 mph G 82 mph

Dew Point: 77 F (25 C)



F1 tornado ripping through town right now, causing some structural damage but nothing major. Everyone is taking shelter. Also, 3.13" of rain have fallen in 45 minutes from such a potent storm. Some flooding is occurring, which has been frequent this month as it has been extremely rainy.



Tornadoes are nothing new in Winter Haven, but they're very rarely stronger than F1 or F2.

How much rain has fallen this month?? It seems like every day you talk about having 2 or 3 or 4 inches falling.

Now for my observation:

Time: 4:20 PM

Temp: 92

Conditions: sunny

Dew Point: 41

Heat returns with a high in the upper 90s tomorrow. Nights are still cooling off to the high 50s though. June has started off very hot and dry and the next week looks to continue the trend.

30.62" from what I counted it's been a very unusually wet month so far due to a near constant humid, southerly flow which has brought very unstable air masses, which leads to hotter and much wetter than normal conditions. This is partially fueled by the fact that here in South FL we also have had a much wetter than normal June, with the PWS in my neighborhood being at 20.5" of rain so far for this June.


Luckily for Winter Haven residents, a very hot and dry last week of June is in forecast, which should do a good job at drying things out a bit. Things are very saturated in WH right now. Although, the first three weeks of July are looking wetter than normal as well with a drier than normal period for late July, August and much of September as well.

Was the ground saturated after the spring thaw? Hope Winter Haven can handle such a large amount of rainfall!

It actually was, though luckily the first half of May was very dry. The wetter pattern started around the last week of May.


There's not such severe flooding because a lot of the rain has come in short, very intense bursts, so there's still been plenty of sun this June to evaporate a lot of the water on the ground. Also, WH has state of the art drainage systems so it hasn't been much of an issue.

What's the heaviest 24 hour rainfall total ever recorded there?
