Andrea Intensifies to a 60 mph Tropical Storm, Spawns 5 Tornadoes in Florida

Tropical Storm Andrea has exceeded expectations. An Air Force hurricane hunter plane flying through Andrea near 3 am EDT found that a strong band of heavy thunderstorms with moderate turbulence and intense lightning had wrapped partway around the center, and Andrea had intensified into a respectable tropical storm with 60 mph sustained winds and a central pressure of 997 mb. The intensification occurred despite the presence of a large area of dry air to the storm's west, and high wind shear of 25 knots. Satellite loops show that Andrea has expanded in size this morning, and its heavy thunderstorms have become more intense. The heaviest thunderstorms were in a band well away from the center, extending from Tampa southwestwards over the Gulf of Mexico. There is a large slot of dry air behind this band, and Andrea may be able to close this intrusion of dry air off early this afternoon, and build additional heavy thunderstorms near its center. However, given the continued presence of dry air and increasing wind shear, and little time before landfall, it will be difficult for Andrea to reach hurricane strength before landfall occurs early this evening--though I won't rule out intensification to a 70 mph tropical storm. Heavy rains of 3 - 6" that have the potential to cause flash flooding will be the storm's main threat. Carrabelle, near Apalachicola, reported 4.5" of rain in a 5-hour period ending at 8 am EDT. Tornadoes in some of the heavier thunderstorms in Andrea's spiral bands are also a concern, and the storm had already spawned five tornadoes as of 9 am EDT. Bands of heavy thunderstorms with embedded rotating thunderstorms capable of generating tornadoes where over both the west and east coasts of Florida between 6 am - 8am, triggering tornado warnings in the counties near Fort Lauderdale and Tampa Bay. A tornado hit The Acreage in Palm Beach County at 6:45 am EDT, injuring one person, damaging homes, and downing trees and power lines. Two other tornadoes were reported on Florida's east coast, one in Broward County, and one in Palm Beach County. Andrea also spawned two tornadoes southeast of Tampa Bay between 2:30 am and 4 am EDT Thursday, but damage was minor. Most of South and Central Florida are under a tornado watch today. A storm surge of 2 - 5 feet is predicted for Tampa Bay northward to Apalachicola, and rip currents will be a risk for swimmers who brave the high surf. As of 9 am EDT Thursday, our wundermap with the storm surge layer turned on was showing storm surge levels just over 1 foot near Tampa and Apalachicola on Florida's Gulf Coast.

We won't have any new wind measurements from the Hurricane Hunters until about 3 pm EDT. Buoy 42036, 122 miles west-northwest of Tampa, reported sustained winds of 40 mph, gusting to 51 mph, between 7 am - 8 am EDT, when the center of Andrea was located about 60 miles to the south-southwest. Winds at a personal weather station at Bald Point State Park near Apalachicola hit 39 mph at 9 am EDT. Winds at Cedar Key were sustained at 28 mph, gusting to 34 mph, at 8:33 am EDT.

Andrea's place in history
Andrea formed in a typical location for early-season storms. The Gulf of Mexico, Western Caribbean, and Bahamas are the usual areas for the genesis of June tropical storms. Andrea's formation date of June 5 is over a month earlier than the average July 9 date for formation of the season's first named storm. On average, the Atlantic sees one June named storm every two years. In 2012, we'd already had two named storms by this point in the season--Alberto and Beryl. This year is the second time a storm named Andrea has appeared in the Atlantic. The previous incarnation, Subtropical Storm Andrea of 2007, wandered off the U.S. East Coast in May, and never made landfall. The 2013 version of Andrea is highly unlikely to get its name retired, and we'll be seeing a third coming of the storm in 2019.

Why is Gainesville under a tropical storm warning it looks like we will get nothing.


Certainly not tropical storm force sustained winds. Have there been any reports of high sustained winds in FL from Andrea (not including tornado activity, just from the storm's wind field itself)?

FT Myers to Naples are set to receive a very heavy line of rain and possible tornado capable cells over the next hours so keep alert there. The wind shear in these bands are capable of producing small EF0-1 tornados with little or no warning.

It appears once again, I will be dealing with the "middle of the night" arrival of yet another tropical system. Dealt with enough of those in 2004. The weather radio is gonna be barking all night. It's bad enough to have rain-wrapped tornadoes moving at 60mph. Add darkness to that and it becomes much worse. Ugh.

The planned GOES-13 return to normal service that was scheduled for today has been postponed.

This was done due to a Critical Weather Day and also because of Tropical Storm Andrea. Although there is no scheduled date as to when it will be in normal service, it will be no sooner than June 10th.

There are no operational issues and re-activation is still proceeding nominally .

People in Central FL must heed these warnings as tornados may occur with little warning or advance notice in these conditions.

We had to ride out a tornado in our (very large and fortunately heavy RV once with less than 30 second notice during a night time event. Many of the smaller RVs were destroyed, tossed around or had windows blow out. One was carried more than 50 ft in the air before being dropped.

Thanks for the advice. Sorry to hear about your run of bad luck weather wise. Stay safe over there in LWR. I'm wondering if this large band of rain that just went thru might actually come back over top of us as Andrea lifts farther north and east.


We maybe out of the woods here, but it's too hard to say given the way these are regenerating. Our property was most affected by a tornado in Minnesota in 2001 when a lightning bolt hit our apt building DURING the tornado strike. The fire burned out 12 units just two apts down from ours...a huge mess!

Today we are all good here...stay safe and dry there somehow!!

That one went over us as well along Lakewood Ranch Blvd but not severe effects here...so sorry to hear about your tree and house!! Stay safe there as a bit more in on the way! Call your insurance company and they should immediately send a local company out to block off the broken window if you call and ask. They do not want further rain damage and if there are people available they can come even during the storm.

We have worked in the hurricane/storm response industry for ten years so we have seen a bit of this. Three direct tornado hits to our car, RV and home.

Baroclinic forcing won't allow the storm to weaken as quickly as a separate tropical storm without the influence of it [baroclinic forcing] taking the same storm track would, but it won't sustain the storm's current intensity either.
