JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tropical storm "Andrea" is moving into the Eastern Gulf of Mexico and will move norht/northeast to near and over Northern & Northwest Florida producing very heavy rain that could cause flooding along with an isolated tornado threat. Scattered showers will prevail into early Thursday with some wet roads for the morning commute.  As "Andrea" moves closer, rain and storms will increase from south to north Thursday with areas of heavy rain continuing through Thursday night into early Friday.  Total rainfall through Friday will average 2-5" but 6"+ in a few spots.  With the ground saturated, creeks, streams and rivers will be quick to rise, so people living in flood prone areas should be ready to take action.  The highest flooding and tornado risk looks to be between noon Thursday and 7am Friday.  Tune in Action News on CBS-47 and Fox 30 for weather ** here ** to download the FREE First Alert Weather iPad ** here ** to send First Alert weather photos and/or ** here ** to go to "Talking the Tropics With Mike".
