    Weather channel says it's too early to tell, and any predictions are based on pure speculation right now.....in other words, we don't really know...too early to tell. I think it's worth keeping an "eye" on it...at least until Labor Day weekend.

    Bermuda might want to watch out.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Katia began as an area of low pressure that had moved away from the coast of Africa south of the Cape Verde Islands in the central eastern Atlantic.
    Storms forming in this region are known as "Cape Verde" storms. They tend to be larger and stronger than average because of the open ocean and occur most often in August and September during the height of the hurricane season. Irene was a Cape Verde storm.
    :eek: Projected to become a hurricane some time today and a Major hurricane some time this weekend :eek:



    I figured I'd start a new thread as it is no longer a tropical depression......sorry Meggers!

    "Katia is expected to continue on its current west-northwest track passing north of the Leeward Islands. It is also forecast to become a hurricane and possibly a major hurricane as it encounters warmer waters and reduced wind shear."
