It's named Andrea. (FL_TN_nana started a thread in "Other.")
NOAA usually has the most accurate info. Right now their prediction is landfall Sunday morning, possibly Flagler County. Since the water is still so cold, it probably won't get much stronger.

We NEED a storm like this in Florida!! It's only too bad that it won't make it too much further down the state. Tropical (or, in this case, subtropical) storms bring lots of rain with less winds.

Default That storm is a good thing.

It'll help with the fires. Incident., those who put FL down because of hurricanes, well, look at the entire weather picture and realize, the weather is a constant and always has been. Kansas has tornados, other parts of the US have floods. CA and FL, fires. It's a fact of life. I'm more concerned about over-population and our using up of natural resources. That is a good part of the problem. We are using up water and land supplies and messing with the eco-system. We don't need big families anymore, people for those big families are using up resources that they will need to live on.

I hail from upstate NY and have lived in FL for about 15 years and the hurricanes are nothing compared to tornados and other weather conditions as we get ample time to prepare and half of them don't even hit.

After digging out of too many ice storms, I'd rather deal with 6 months of maybe a hurricane will hit.

Any rain would be much appreciated!

Just saw on the news that a major landmark park (Griffith Park) in LA has succumb to wildfire as has many homes. It seems Missouri suffers from nasty flooding every few years. Right now, that state has declared emergency due to flooding.

Mother Nature doesn't ask our permission to visit. She was here first

Default You got that right, 121804...

And she's everywhere. We need to stop trying to outwit and outrun Her and just settle down and enjoy our home, no matter where home is.

Well I hope it's one of many to come! That would solve the tax problem for sure.

For some historical perspective on whether having a named storm this early means a very bad season, take a look at http://www.umbc.edu/ges/student_proj...ge/fullres1981. You will see that in 1981 (the last time this happened) it was a near-normal season.

You have to look how far north this storm originated, Storms in the very south tropics are not that rare this time of year. But a storm this far north is unheard of this early.

Well actually it happened in April 2003. And 18 times before in May. Tropical Storm Ana was the first tropical cyclone of the 2003 Atlantic hurricane season, and the only tropical storm on record to exist in the month of April in the Atlantic basin. The storm formed off the coast of Florida on April 20, 2003 and passed south of Bermuda before becoming extratropical. Ana killed two people when ocean swells capsized a boat on the Florida coastline.
