Tropical Storm Katrina

As feared yesterday morning, a tropical storm has formed near the Bahamas and is expected by the NHC to navigate into the Gulf by this weekend. T.S. Katrina could possibly become a hurricane by Sunday or Monday.

Widely scattered computer model projections early Wednesday show that both the eventual direction and intensity of T.S. Katrina remain uncertain for the time being. However, Pensacola area residents, and particularly barrier island homeowners and businesses, should keep a careful watch on this developing storm.
