Jose fizzled out Monday after becoming a tropical storm.
Now comes Katia, heading toward the Caribbean from halfway between Africa and South America.
It's estimated to become a hurricane by late Wednesday or early Thursday and a major Category 3 storm by Sunday morning, when it's projected to be east-northeast of Puerto Rico, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Computer models suggest it could continue on a northerly path toward the East Coast, but stop predicting a thousand miles from the Carolinas.
The history of hurricanes on a similar track runs the gamut from hitting the coast to curving well out to sea.
