Tropical Storm Andrea Comes up the Coast

June 6, 2013; 11:15 AM ET

Commentary

Tropical Storm Andrea probably hit its peak this morning and now will remain a storm moving up the coast. Not sure how NHC will handle the naming of the storm once it moves across Florida but in any case, extreme rain will hit northern Florida into southeastern Georgia through tonight. Some places will pick up 5-10 inches or rain with flooding likely.

Winds from Florida up the coast to New England will be gusty as Andrea moves by. Wind gusts along the coast will be 30-45 mph in gusts, with places like Nantucket and Cape Cod having a gust up to 60 mph.

Heavy rains will also run the I-95 corridor from South Carolina to New England. Places like D.C., Philly and NYC may see 1-3 inches of rain followed by another round of heavy rains Saturday as the system from Dallas comes through.

Tornado threat will remain across Florida today and may expend up the Southeast coast Friday just east of the Andrea's track.
