    Researchers are tracking a great white shark that has slowly been making its way toward South Florida waters.

    The shark, named Katharine by nonprofit shark research group OCEARCH, was last tracked by satellite Wednesday around noon in waters just east of Boynton Beach. OCEARCH tweeted that Katharine was swimming south toward Fort Lauderdale.

    OCEARCH has been following Katharine since August, when she was tagged in Cape Cod, Mass. Katharine is just over 14-feet long and weighs about 2,300 pounds. She's traveled a total of 3,685 miles since she was tagged.
