MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters say the first named storm of Atlantic season, Tropical Storm Andrea, has formed over the Gulf of Mexico.

A news release from the National Hurricane Center in Miami says a reconnaissance aircraft spotted a well-defined area of circulation over the central Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday afternoon.

The center released few other details about the storm but promised a full advisory later in the day.
