A strong upper level trough developed across the southeastern United
States during the last week of
June. A large convective system formed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico on June 24th, with a small low
pressure system developing by that evening. The low strengthened as it moved rapidly northeast,
making landfall just north of Tampa that night and moving north of Orlando by the morning of the
25th. As the system pulled away from Florida it became extratropical, and its center became hard
to find by that evening. Below is a storm total rainfall map for the subtropical storm. Note the
two maxima near and east its track through Florida.
