Tropical Storm Kate Stronger: Winds 60 mph

Tropical Storm Kate Stronger: Winds 60 mph

TSKateNov9IRThe 11th named storm of the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane season is wrapping up tightly tonight. The storm is moving north of the Bahamas and feeling the influence of the strong eastern US storm. As a result, this will continue to curve out towards the northeast away from the coast.  The strong gradient between both storms will make for rough seas and could be part of why Kate is stronger with winds up to 60 mph. Tropical storm force winds extend 80 miles from the center. Poised over the warm water of the Gulf Stream, there is a chance it gets a little stronger. It is possible this reaches Category 1 Hurricane intensity, but will stay over the water with only Bermuda under potential threat.
