Tell me about it - I flew into Jacksonville, FL, yesterday. And now I'm on the coast. But it's not so bad around Northern Florida - just a little rain. If anything, the smoke from all the forest fires is worse.

Andrea has weakened this morning, and will have a lessening impact on the Southeast Coast over the next few days. It has been downgraded to a depression
Andrea has maximum sustained winds of near 35 mph and continued weakening is expected through today. The storm was drifting slowly southeast about 100 miles east of Jacksonville, Florida. The center of Andrea is forecast to remain offshore through today and possibly remain there through its lifespan.
The greatest impacts from this storm likely peaked on Monday and Tuesday (before it was even given a name) but brief gusty winds are still possible, especially along the South Carolina and Georgia coast.
Wave heights will continue to be on the decline during the remainder of the week however breakers of 9 to 12 feet will still crash along the beaches of South Carolina during much of today. Minor beach erosion is still possible and the risk of rip currents will remain high through at least today and possibly longer.
Coastal showers will move onshore through the day, especially along the South Carolina, Georgia and northeastern Florida coast. Unfortunately for the arid Southeast, any bit of rain is beneficial but it will likely not be a soaking rainfall. The rain that does fall will likely not be enough to help firefighters battle the fires over southeast Georgia and northern Florida.

Sounds like you have abitions to become 'the weather man'
The link is good. I like the way the website is organized and how it keeps track of hurricanes. I didn't know there were lots of wild/forrest fires in the south east of the US. Hope the damage will stay small.
Good luck to the people out there
