Tropical Storm Andrea has developed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Andrea’s track
will affect the East Coast in the coming days. Regardless of whether Andrea is still
a named tropical system when it arrives in our area, significant amounts of tropical
moisture will stream up the East Coast, bringing the potential for heavy rainfall to
the region.

Widespread rainfall amounts of two to four inches are expected, starting late tonight,
and ending on Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts in this range will produce flash
flooding, as well as potential river flooding.

The main threat for river flooding would be on Saturday, June 8th into Sunday, June 9th

Winds may gust up to 40 mph along the Atlantic coasts of New Jersey & Delaware,
25 to 35 mph over inland sections east of I-95, and up to 25 mph west of I-95.

Minor coastal flooding is possible with the Friday evening high tide.
