    Default storms blew just so

    Hello everyone
    I'd like to ask about the meaning of "just so" in the following context.

    Finally the near-corpse was pushed into the storm belt, and the storms blew just so, carrying it out under the motionless sun. There the island turned a dark vibrant green again, dropping new roots that pulled minerals out of the nearly bottomless ocean -- roots that flexed and rippled to help hold the island in the bright sunshine.

    Does "just so" mean that the storms were not very strong?

    I think from context is means "just enough to move the near-corpse"
