Tropical Storm Andrea made landfall early this evening near the Big Bend area on Florida’s Gulf Coast. Andrea will increase in forward speed tonight and ride up the east coast, combining with another storm to bring Connecticut waves of rain tonight through early Saturday.
Rain will come down off and on tonight and Friday. The heaviest will fall Friday night. Rain moves out Saturday morning followed by some clearing. A lingering shower is possible in the afternoon.
Wind is not expected to be an issue with this storm. Minor coastal flooding is possible during Friday night’s high tide. Tidal departures will remain around or below two feet. Once again, the main impact will be heavy rain and street flooding.
