TROPICAL STORM ANDREA FORMED 310 MILES SOUTHWEST OF TAMPA

Tropical storm ANDREA will move north to northeast across northern Florida by Thursday afternoon and Thursday night. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the Atlantic coast from Flagler Beach to Surf City, NC. Due to the storm’s interaction with land, ANDREA’s winds should not increase significantly. Other than a chance of isolated tornadoes over the Florida peninsula, this will probably be mainly a producer of heavy rains.

Rainfalls of 5 inches or more between Thursday and Friday morning will cause flooding along many Gulf coast, north Florida and extreme southeast Georgia lowlands and streams as the Gulf low pressure system moves northeastward across our area. Fortunately this will not be like last year’s DEBBY that brought 15 to 20 inches of rain to north Florida. ANDREA’s rains will be less than two days as the storm should be moving away on Friday. However, it will a couple of days afterwards before flood waters completely recede in some places.
