Track of TS 12L

The center of Hurricane Katia (12L) is located near latitude 30.8 north, longitude 70.0 west. Katia is moving toward the north-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/h).

The hurricane is expected to turn to the north by Thursday morning, followed by a north-northeastward motion with an increase in forward speed Thursday night and Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Katia will move between the east coast of the United States and Bermuda through Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts. Katia is a category one hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Little change in strength is forecast during the next couple of days.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km). A sustained wind of 67 mph with a gust to 83 mph was recently reported. Estimated minimum central pressure is 982 mb (29.00 inches).

Hazards affecting land include surf, wind and rainfall. Large swells generated by Katia will continue to affect most of the east coast of the United States, Bermuda and east-facing beaches of the Bahamas during the next couple of days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Tropical-storm-force winds, especially in gusts, are possible in Bermuda through Thursday. Katia is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches across Bermuda.
