Bahamas/Bermuda: Tropical Storm Kate

Tropical Storm Kate will stir seas and bring downpours in the area from the Bahamas to Bermuda into Wednesday.

Tropical Depression 12 became Tropical Storm Kate Monday morning near the Bahamas.

Rain squalls and gusty winds accompanying Kate will graze the eastern islands of the Bahamas into Monday night.

Seas will also build and become a concern for bathers, boaters and cruise interests from the Bahamas to Bermuda to along the southern Atlantic Seaboard of the United States.
