Tropical Storm Kate is dousing parts of the Bahamas with heavy rain and strong winds this week, and could intensify into the season’s fourth hurricane by Wednesday. It’s the first tropical cyclone to impact the Bahamas in November in five years.
Hurricane Hunters flew into then-Tropical Depression Twelve early Monday morning to find a strengthening storm, and the National Hurricane Center upgraded the system to Tropical Storm Kate. The storm’s maximum sustained winds are 40 mph, and it’s centered about 350 miles east-southeast of Miami.
