As recovery from Hurricane Irene is still in the early stages, another potential problem storm is stirring in the tropics.

Katia, classified a tropical storm Tuesday morning, has been tracking north and west through the Atlantic.  In the latest advisory, the National Weather Service predicts the storm will continue to strengthen, and could reach hurricane strength late Wednesday or early Thursday.

If the storm holds together, current projections place it near Puerto Rico overnight on Sunday.

It’s far too early to say whether it will continue to follow a similar path as Hurricane Irene, but while some computer models show it blowing off to sea, others have it coming very close to the region.

You might want to hang on to those unused jugs of Irene water as News4 chief meteorologist Doug Kammerer keeps an eye on Katia.
