KATIA TO BRING VERY ROUGH SURF TO THE EAST COAST, BUT SHOULD SPARE HATTERAS AND CAPE COD ITS DIRECT EFFECTS

Hurricane Katia continues to spin just under 400 miles south of Bermuda with winds of 120 mph, and moving northwest. The storm should now pass between Bermuda and the outer banks of North Carolina, sparing the East coast, including OBX, of any major effects. Very rough surf and dangerous rip currents will result along the entire eastern seaboard throughout the rest of the week however.

The next tropical system is now seen in the east central Atlantic and will likely become Maria in the next few days. This storm is forming significantly farther south than Katia did, increasing chances of US landfall, much like Irene. This is at least a week away from becoming a real threat though, so there’s plenty of time to follow it.
