It was very windy across Florida this morning.
It’s windy at Florida Learning Garden! The wind speed is a brisk 18 miles per hour.

Don’t remember the last time I saw a beach so empty! It’s incredibly windy (sand whips into your skin), and waves should reach 6-12ft along the Florida Coast! Also, don’t forget about the rip tide warning @CBS12 pic.twitter.com/Rhjq3mdDmh

And of course, people are adding a little humor to the windy situation across Florida.

More wind is expected through the afternoon. Wind alerts will stay active through roughly 4 PM EST for central Florida.
Windy conditions for Florida and the Southeast are likely for later this weekend through early Monday as potent cold front and developing low pressure system over the Gulf of Mexico sweep across the region. Heavy rain is also expected across the region over this same period.
Hold on your your hats folks and then grab the umbrella.
