Tropical Storm Kate formed in the open Atlantic Monday morning but has spent most of the time since then as a tropical depression.
After spending a couple of days meandering northeast of the Leeward Islands, Tropical Depression Ten gathered enough strength to become Tropical Storm Kate on Monday.
The storm is in the open Atlantic, slowly heading north. It will remain on that path before dissipating later this week.
Ida continues to drop heavy rain across parts of the eastern U.S., though. We’re also watching two more tropical disturbances in the Atlantic, including Tropical Depression Twelve.
