Tropical Storm Katia formed in the eastern Atlantic early on Saturday. It won’t be any concern to the U.S.
Katia will be a short-lived tropical storm as it moves northwest in the open Atlantic. It’s well northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and won’t affect any land.
It’ll be weak for its short life as wind shear increases this weekend. Katia may become a post-tropical system already on Sunday, dissipating in open water next week.
