Good evening! Low pressure is still pin-wheeling tonight near the Big Bend, but it's not nearly as strong as it briefly became late yesterday night when it was off the Brevard coast. As it moved over the warm water just offshore, it produced wind gusts to Category 1 hurricane force (near 80 mph!) along the coast with 40+ mph gusts farther inland. The breezes settled down Monday across the area and wind will not be much of a factor over the next few days. But, wow, what a wet few days it was across the area!
