Mighty Katia Has Fallen - Now a Tropical Storm

These things happen.  The models predict light shear, favorable conditions, and a major hurricane in the making. Then the Sea answers back, the Wind and the Sky answer back, and a cutting gale blows against the storm, decimating its core, stealing its energy.  The analysts avert their eyes from the Atlantic, look towards the Gulf and run the models again.  There will be something new, something powerful and dangerous that will make landfall.  The continuous waves of reporting will ratchet up the warning flags for the next storm to come.

But among themselves they talk of a new Katia, rising stronger than before, bringing a new fear into the hearts of all who live within distance of her powerful lungs, her sheets of endless water, and her surging ocean waves.  Probably happen within a few days, folks.

"THE OFFICIAL FORECAST HAS BEEN LOWERED SLIGHTLY
DUE TO THE MARGINAL ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN THE SHORT
TERM...HOWEVER IT STILL BRINGS KATIA TO A MAJOR HURRICANE IN A FEW DAYS."  - NWS National  Hurricane Center, Advisory No. 15  9/1/11  5:00 p.m.
