TROPICAL UPDATE FOR WEDNESDAY JUNE 5, 2013

Posted: Updated:

It is Wednesday, June 5th, the fifth day of the 2013 Atlantic Basin hurricane season.

Tropical Storm Andrea is alive now in the east-central Gulf of Mexico. Andrea developed from Disturbance 91-L. Here is the critical information summary:

LOCATION...near 26.0 North and 86.3 West, or about 270 miles WSW of Tampa, Florida.

MOTION...north, on a compass heading of 010 degrees, at 6 mph.

STRENGTH...maximum sustained winds of 40 mph and a minimum central pressure of 29.59 inches.

OUTLOOK...Andrea is expected to continue a general northward motion tonight and take a more NNE path Thursday in response to an approaching front and jet stream disturbance. Minimal strengthening is forecasted due to only marginally favorable oceanic heat content and deep-layer shear.

Elsewhere, the Atlantic Basin is quiet.
