Tropical Storm: ‘Overachieving’ tropical storm Katia is exepected to continue weakening

Forecasters on Saturday described Tropical Storm Katia as “overachieving” in the Eastern Atlantic, saying that although its direction was proving difficult to pin down, it was expected to weaken Sunday.
In an advisory late Saturday, the National Hurricane Center estimated that the storm had sustained winds of 45 mph, with higher gusts. The storm, which was about 855 miles north-northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands, is not expected to pose a threat to land.
As for where Katia might be headed in the next couple of days, the hurricane center said “the guidance suite literally has motions in all cardinal directions,” with one forecast model showing “the proverbial squashed spider pattern.”
“Thus, the new forecast stalls the system before dissipating, but it will require some time to sort out the long-range details,” forecasters added.
It has been a busy week in the Atlantic.
Katia joined several other systems: the remains of Hurricane Idalia, which is now a post-tropical cyclone that could bring tropical storm conditions to Bermuda through Saturday night; Hurricane Franklin, which became an “extratropical” cyclone on Friday; Tropical Storm Jose, which was absorbed by Franklin; and Gert, which is expected to be absorbed by Idalia.
The Atlantic hurricane season started June 1 and runs through Nov. 30.
