Tropical Storm Andrea forms in the Gulf of Mexico


The first named storm of Atlantic season, Andrea, has formed over the Gulf of Mexico and was likely to bring wet weather to parts of Florida's west coast by the end of the week.

Forecasters issued a tropical storm warning for the west coast of Florida from Boca Grande to an area along the coast south of Tallahassee.

Andrea had maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour, according to a 6 p.m. weather outlook. It was moving toward the north near three miles per hour and forecasters expected the storm to continue moving northeastward at a faster speed on Thursday.

The center of Andrea was expected to reach the coast of the Florida Big Bend on Thursday afternoon or evening and move over southeastern Georgia and eastern South Carolina Thursday night and Friday.
