Kyle has become post-tropical in the western Atlantic Ocean, according to the National Hurricane Center.

According to NHC's 5 a.m. update, the post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the east and that general motion will continue through Monday before the system dissipates.

Little change in strength is forecasted before the system dissipates by Monday night, the NHC said.

This is the earliest a “K” named storm has ever formed. The record had previously been held with Katrina in 2005 when it developed on Aug 24.
