First Named Storm of 2013

The first Tropical Storm of the 2013 season has started to leave its mark on Western Florida. Tropical Storm Andrea has a sustained wind speed of 60mph and wind gusts in excess of 80mph. The storm is bringing tropical storm conditions to nearly all of Northern Florida and is expected to dump 4-7″ of rain across the state before it exits late tonight into tomorrow. It’s current track will take it across the state roughly 100 miles north of Tampa Bay. Andrea then looks to take a path just to the east of the East Coast and out to the North Atlantic by Saturday afternoon. This is the first named storm of 2013 and this season follows one of the most active on record in 2012 when there were 19 named storms. Hurricane season lasts from June 1st to November 30th. -Greg312
