Hurricane Kate forms in the Atlantic overnight


MIAMI (AP/WAVY) — Hurricane Kate has formed in the Atlantic north of Bermuda, becoming the fourth hurricane of the Atlantic season.

10 on your side Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler is tracking the storm.  He does not expect it to hit Hampton Roads.  But it could bring higher than normal waves and possible rip currents to our beaches.

The hurricane’s maximum sustained winds early Wednesday are near 75 mph (120 kph).

Kate is centered about 260 miles (420 kilometers) north of Bermuda and is moving northeast near 40 mph (65 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says swells from Kate will begin affecting Bermuda on Wednesday morning, likely causing life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
