Do we need to worry about Hurricane Katia?

Chief meteorologist Tim Heller has the latest forecast for Hurricane Katia.

HOUSTON, Texas - The tropics are very active right now, with three hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin. One of these hurricanes, Katia, is in the southern Gulf of Mexico.

The good news for those in Texas is that we are not expected any impacts from Katia. The cold front that moved through our area earlier this week is helping to keep Katia and its moisture well south of our area.

In addition, a ridge of high pressure is building into the region. This ridge will also help keep storms and even any moisture away into early next week.
