NASA Watching Atlantic Tropics: Katia, Tropical Storm Lee and System 94L [detail view]

Newer Older

There are three areas of tropical trouble brewing in the Atlantic Ocean Basin today and they'll be there over the Labor Day holiday weekend. NOAA's GOES-13 satellite today provided a look at the location and development of Tropical Storm Katia (right) in the central Atlantic, newborn Tropical Depression 13 (left), and developing System 94L (top) in the north Atlantic off the New England coast.

The GOES-13 image was created by NASA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The image showed Katia to be the most well-organized of the three systems, although Tropical Depression 13 and System 94L are developing the typical hallmark "comma shape" of a tropical storm.

Tropical Depression 13 is the only one of the three causing watches and warnings, although Katia is roughing up the surf in the Lesser Antilles. For more information about all three storms, visit NASA's Hurricane page: www.nasa.gov/hurricane, and over the weekend get updates on Facebook and Twitter @NASAHurricane.
