Tropical Storm Katia Forms In The Atlantic

MIAMI, Fla. -- Tropical Storm Katia has formed and is moving quickly across the Atlantic.

Katia has maximum sustained winds early Tuesday near 40 mph (65 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says strengthening is forecast and Katia is expected to be near hurricane strength by late Wednesday or early Thursday.
The storm's forecast track shows it could become a major hurricane over the weekend.
Katia is centered about 535 miles (855 kilometers) west-southwest of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands and is moving west-northwest near 17 mph (28 kph). Hurricane specialist Michael Brennan says Katia could affect the Caribbean, but it's too early to tell if it will hit the U.S.
