A CoCoRaHS History of Andrea

Tropical Storm Andrea developed in the Gulf of Mexico last week and moved up along the east coast finally moving well out to sea Saturday. Andrea began losing tropical characteristics on Friday and by late afternoon Friday was extratropical. The low picked up speed and raced northeast along the coast Friday and Saturday. It finally turned out to sea and was absorbed by another low near Newfoundland Sunday.

Here is an animation of the CoCoRaHS precipitation map from Wednesday, June 5 through Sunday, June 9.

7-day precipitation accumulation ending Sunday, June 9. Not all precipitation
along the eastern seaboard during this period was due to Andrea, but
her footprint is certainly evident.
