Magnetic Media is told, weather is beginning to deteriorate in Nassau, Bahamas already.
The system was originally forecast as having low chance of development on Friday but on Sunday gained strength and threatened to bring heavy downpours and gusty winds. Initially those islands in the two chains – The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos – which were most impacted by hurricane Joaquin were forecast to get the soggy weather but a merciful change altered the conditions.
Kate is packing near 45 mph winds and set to swing northeast out into the open Atlantic.
Meanwhile, islands under Tropical Storm warning are: GRAND BAHAMA, ABACO, ANDROS, BIMINI, THE BERRY ISLANDS, NEW PROVIDENCE, ELEUTHERA, THE EXUMAS, CAT ISLAND, LONG ISLAND, RUM CAY AND SAN SALVADOR.
