Heavy rainfall chances diminish here as Andrea tracks farther to the east

STATE COLLEGE - Andrea will brush the mid-Atlantic coast and sweep over New England Friday into Saturday with locally heavy rain in many areas - more than we will receive here in the Central Susquehanna Valley, meteorologists said today.

Rainfall predictions here have been reduced to about a half inch later today as the storm continues to track farther to the east.

As of 5:00 a.m. today, maximum sustained winds with Andrea were around 45 mph. The storm was located about 30 miles west of Savannah, Ga. Around 5:45 p.m. Thursday, Andrea made landfall along the Florida Big Bend.

While widespread flooding problems are not expected in the Northeast, Andrea will quickly move from the Southeast to the Atlantic coast on Friday, bringing tropical downpours and urban flooding concerns to end the week, said Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meteorologist at Accuweather.

Andrea is likely to retain tropical storm status at least as far to the northeast as the Carolinas.

Travel delays from blinding tropical downpours, poor drainage area flooding and locally gusty thunderstorms are possible. A brief period of stiff winds will sweep northward, brushing the coast in some areas, especially Cape Hatteras, N.C., Long Island, N.Y., and Cape Cod, Mass.

The rain from Andrea will precede the center of circulation by 12 hours or more.

Disruptive downpours can occur around Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Trenton, New York City, Boston, Hartford, Providence, Portsmouth, N.H., 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, especially in southeastern Virginia, Delmarva, southern and coastal New Jersey, Long Island and southeastern New England.
