17th Year of "As the Wind Blows" Tropical Storm Observations from Tampa Bay

SLOW then WHOA!
Wilma must have her feet out the bottom of Fred's car and has slowed down to the point where she will probably not affect Florida directly until later Saturday night or Sunday when that cold front (those of you up north will be feeling) deepens south across the Tennessee Valley and gives Wilma a big push to the Northeast.
Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 260 miles from the hurricane's center.
