With Irma Already Looming, Another Tropical Storm Forms in the Atlantic

08 September 2017, 12:43 | Violet Powell

Tropical Storm Jose is expected to become a hurricane later today

Tropical Storm Jose Becomes the 10th Named Storm of the Hurricane Season

The hurricane, which formed as a tropical storm on Wednesday, was intensifying in the eastern Atlantic, following behind Irma on a similar path.

Irma appears destined to make landfall somewhere along the eastern United States coastline which means everyone who lives along the coast should remain vigilant and keep an eye out for the latest forecasts from the National Hurricane Center as the forecast is likely to change again. In an unlikely coincidence, these storms are nearly in the same order and position as Irma, Jose and Katia, and have the same first three letters (I, J, K).

At 11 p.m. ET, Jose was packing 50 miles per hour winds and was moving west at 14 miles per hour.

NHC forecaster Chris Landsea said that Jose should move toward the west or west-northwest for the next three to four days at a slightly faster rate of forward speed as it moves south of the deep-layer Azores-Bermuda high.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Jose is now a Category 1 storm.

Category 5 Hurricane Irma was joined Wednesday by two additional storms forming in the Atlantic basin, Jose and Katia.

Previous forecasts projected Jose to become a hurricane on Thursday.

The storms follow on the heels of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

As the Caribbean endures Irma and Florida braces for a potential hit, another system could present the next big weather threat.

A new tropical storm formed over the Atlantic Ocean Tuesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center. Current projections show it moving up the Atlantic, north of the Caribbean islands, becoming a Category 3 or more storm. However, the hurricane is forecast to turn southwestward and approach the coast within the warning area late Friday or early Saturday. A hurricane warning remains in effect for the BVI. The agency said Jose is expected to become "a major hurricane" on Friday.

It's following a track close to Irma, though its path is predicted to shift east of the current Category 5 storm that's packing 185 miles per hour sustained winds as it whips through the Caribbean. Jose and Katia are the 10th and 11th this season.

Tropical Storm Emily made landfall in the Anna Maria Island area and is making its way across the Sunshine State.

Irma's core slammed Barbuda early Wednesday before moving over St. Martin and Anguilla and parts of the British Virgin Islands.
