Tropical Storm Kate No Match for Florida Front

Kate, the eleventh Tropical Storm of the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season, formed early Monday morning. Tropical Storm Kate is expected to strengthen, but the National Hurricane Center is projecting a harmless turn out to sea over the next 72 hours, away from Florida. The storm has the potential to become a strong tropical storm or category 1 hurricane Tuesday as it turns north and east. Direct impacts from Kate will remain limited to the Bahamas, but Florida’s Atlantic Coast will experience rough seas and dangerous rip currents through Wednesday. Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued for the central and northwestern Bahamas, but no advisories have been posted for Florida.

Closer to home, the passage of a front will bring a more comfortable, drier air mass to the state Tuesday. Highs will remain above average through Thursday, though, when a shot of colder air behind a second front will finally usher in some fall-like temperatures.
