Kate Becomes 4th Atlantic Hurricane of 2015

Hurricane Kate became the fourth Atlantic hurricane of 2015 early Wednesday morning, passing well north of Bermuda, according to a report from Weather Underground.

“Kate is racing northeast, caught up in the jet stream and will soon become a ‘post-tropical’ cyclone over the north Atlantic Ocean,” Weather Underground affirmed.

Weather Underground cited highlights about the storm including:

Due to atmospheric steering currents of high pressure over the open Atlantic, Weather Underground said that Kate is currently being pulled northeast at more than 30 miles per hour.

Shower and thunderstorm activity with heavy rain has soaked parts of the East Coast this week – but from a separate weather system, the report continued.
