Tropical Storm Andrea

In just 24 hours, a disorganized group of thunderstorms southwest of Florida has organized and developed into Tropical Storm Andrea, with winds up to 60 knots (69 mph) -- almost into hurricane territory.  Andrea is moving NNE at 12 knots and the projected path and wind probabilities are shown in the NHC graphic below.  A moderate storm surge of around 3 feet is possible along the coast to either side of the point of landfall.
