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.

THERE ARE NO CHANGES TO THE TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS ON THIS ADVISORY. BASED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT ANDREA WILL BECOME POST-TROPICAL/EXTRATOPICAL IN ABOUT 36 HOURS...WE DO NOT EXPECT TO EXTEND THE TROPICAL WARNINGS ANY FARTHER NORTH ALONG THE COAST. OUR CURRENT INTENTION IS THAT ANY HAZARDOUS WIND CONDITIONS FROM THE DELMARVA PENINSULA NORTHWARD TO NEW ENGLAND WOULD BE HANDLED BY LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WARNING PRODUCTS.


Hmmm where have I heard that before?



I'm confused...NHC forecast calls for Andrea to emerge over the Chesapeake while still tropical, yet the Tropical Storm Warnings cease at Cape Charles. In reality I doubt she will be a tropical storm by then, but wouldn't that forecast logic validate an extension of warnings up to at least Cape May? Even if she does become extratropical? Does Andrea not pose enough of a threat to the Northeast? I understand this is very different from Sandy and far less dangerous but wouldn't this be a perfect opportunity for the NHC to enact their policy change?

Agreed. The NHC seems so determined that nothing can form out there this time of the year that they won't even consider giving it a second look.

Well darn, I dont get online for a day and we get a TS. Looks like I'm going to eat some crow right now haha. I know this is a little late but everyone stay safe over there in Florida. I see we are looking at 92L, I'll take a stab at it and give it 40% of becoming a TC in its life, I'm thinking it will still have to overcome dry air and shear.

Some people here were teasing me when couple days ago, I said is strange the consistency of the CMC, thing that happened with alvin also...The CMC needs to do much more things, to we trust in him, but as you mentioned has done a pretty good job in this young season!!!!!!Lets see what happens !!!

You're right... I just read where they re-use these names every 6 years or so... The 2001 TS Barry actually killed 3 people in Florida and 6 in Cuba for a total of 9 dead... I just think it might be bad karma to re-use a name like that... Hope my question wasn't too foolish! I usually just lurk here...

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 .

AND CAN VARY GREATLY OVER SHORT DISTANCES. FOR INFORMATION SPECIFIC
TO YOUR AREA...PLEASE SEE PRODUCTS ISSUED BY YOUR LOCAL NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE.

RAINFALL...ANDREA IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE TOTAL RAIN ACCUMULATIONS OF
3 TO 6 INCHES OVER MUCH OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA...EASTERN PARTS OF

Both its extratropical cold low and tropical low intensity guidance has been superb in 2013. I hope this indicates step in the right direction for intensity forecasting. But the satellite coverage uncertainty is the rather large elephant in the room.

Afternoon and checking in. Been driving through-out the inland Big Bend for the last 3 hours between Bristol and Tallahassee, including a stretch on I-10, and Andrea has thankfully been a relative non-event from what I have seen in these parts. Intermittent steady tropical rains and 20 minutes or so, a lull, and on again. Currently not raining in Quincy with just a slight drizzle. No major winds gusts to speak of thus far.

Can't obviously speak for the rest of the State and I did not make it all the way to the coastline/Hwy 98 to see what the waters looked like.

Don't let someone from TWC tell you otherwise and that Tallahassee is under seige rolling camera from behind a wall with a shot of flimsy bush swaying in the wind.... :)
