Re: HUR Katia Lounge

The Final Advisory was written on Katia at 1000 AM CDT Sat Sep 09 2017. During its lifetime, together with Irma and Jose, helped set all-time records in the Atlantic basin: Daily ACE, number of Cat 2+ TCs simultaneously, etc.

By her own right, Katia attained solid Cat 2 status, with 105 MPH maximum sustained winds and 972mb minimum pressure. In the evening of September 8, Katia made landfall north of Tecolutla, MX.

Perhaps *perhaps* Katia's greatest impact will found to have been a steering influence (or, more aptly, a blocking influence) on Major Hurricane Irma's motion when the historic cyclone unexpectedly more or less came to a crawl just north of Cuba. (Will be looked into by researchers, to be sure). This would have been a byproduct of her outflow invigorating high pressure in the Gulf.
