The first tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season got a little stronger early Thursday as it headed toward Florida’s western coast, bringing drenching rain to much of the state. A new tropical storm warning was also issued for a swath of the U.S. East Coast.
As of 8 a.m. ET, Tropical Storm Andrea had winds of 60 mph and was moving to the north-northeast at 14 mph. The center of the storm was located about 160 miles west of Tampa.
The National Weather Service has issued flood watches all the way from Georgia to Maine.

Disruptive downpours could occur Friday around Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, Hartford, Providence, and Portland, Maine.

Indications are that most locations in this swath will be in for a 2- to 4-inch rainfall, but locally heavier amounts are possible, Sosnowski reports.
