Is This Tropical Storm Katia??

Posted by Dan Satterfield

The tropical wave (bottom left) off Africa is looking very healthy as of Sunday night.

The track/intensity models are indicating development, but hint at a real possibility of an eventual NW track before it approaches North America. I suspect it will be upgraded to a named storm within 36 hours. The next 2 weeks are the most active of the hurricane season.
