Experts Eye Tropical Depression as Next Hurricane

Ad Feedback

As East Coast residents clean up the remnants of Hurricane Irene, weather experts are already watching what could turn into the next hurricane of the season.

A tropical depression far out in the Atlantic is forecast to become a hurricane this week.

Currently, the storm system is off the coast of South Africa, and could strengthen to a tropical storm by Monday night.

The storm would be named "Katia" -- the name that replaced Katrina in the rotating storm roster because of the catastrophic damage from the 2005 storm.

Meteorologists say Katia could reach hurricane strength by Thursday.

It's still too early to tell if the storm would approach the United States.
