Tropical Storm Katrina forms, Hurricane Watch active in Florida

Tropical Storm quatrain is really getting her act together now. Radar out of Miami indicates that there is actually a multitude of sub-vortices forming within the primacy circulation. This is an interesting setup that is causing quatrain to develop a little further north than first expected. Right now shear is low, the underlying water is warm, and outflow is excellent.

Look for steady intensification to occur, and Katrina could be a weak hurricane at landfall somewhere near Miami to Ft Lauderdale.

Check below for a map of watches and warnings now active in the Bahamas and Florida.
