Andrea’s movement is expected to accelerate during the next 48 hours along the forecasted track. The Center of Andrea will reach the coast of the Big Bend area of Florida in the next few hours. Andrea will then move Northeastward near the coast of the United States through Saturday.

Currently Andrea has maximum sustained winds near 60 mph with higher gust, there is little change expected before the center reaches the coastline. Early Friday Andrea is expected to weaken as the Center is overland. Tropical storm force winds extend up to 140 miles from the center with Punta Gorda Florida reporting gust of 58 mph.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

Storm surge combined with the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising water with the deepest water occurring along the immediate coast and to the south of the Florida landfall location. Surge related flooding depents on the timing of the surge and the tide cycle.

Rainfall is expected to be heavy with possibly large accumulations over much of the Florida Peninsula and the eastern parts of the Panhandle, southeastern Georgia and eastern South Carolina

Tropical Storm Conditions are already occurring along the west coast of Florida and will continue to spread northward over the next 24 to 36 hours.

Tornadoes, as with all major weather systems of this type the possibility of Tornado activity is high. Please stay advised using your local weather forcast.

The next advisory is scheduled for 5:00pm eastern time. For complete coverage please go to the National Hurricane Center at:
