The first named storm of the 2013 hurricane season has formed in the Gulf of Mexico and forecasters say it could be felt in the Maritimes this weekend.

Andrea is expected to make landfall on Florida’s west coast Thursday night and tropical storm warnings have been issued for that region.

Early predictions suggest heavy rain and strong winds will affect the Maritimes late Friday and early Saturday with 30-60 mm of rain and gusts up to 70 km/h along the Atlantic coast.
