Tropical Storm Jose forms over open Atlantic

Share

The hurricane center said Tuesday Jose had 40 miles per hour winds, and was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

A new tropical storm formed over the Atlantic Ocean Tuesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Irma will be traveling over very warm waters which will be a favorable environment for sustaining its strength as a Category 5 hurricane, although fluctuations in intensity will continue with eyewall replacement cycles. After that, it will turn to the west-northwest. Jose may become a hurricane by Friday. It's too soon to know the exact impacts from Irma, but everyone should have a hurricane plan in place.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

Computer models continue to vary on the storm's path because it is still far out into the Atlantic.

Currently, forecasters are paying attention to an area of low pressure on the southeast coast.

When the Bermuda high is weak or if there is a strong southern plunge of the jet stream, hurricanes can get pulled around the west side of the Bermuda high and directed toward the northeast Atlantic, the northeastern coast or even the Atlantic coast of Canada. "It also has the potential to significantly strain FEMA and other governmental resources occurring so quickly on the heels of Harvey", said Evan Myers, AccuWeather expert senior meteorologist and chief operating officer. The northern Leewards are now being threatened by Category 5 Hurricane Irma.

Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for all 67 counties in Florida on Monday.

There are some factors that consistently influence the paths of hurricanes, such as the Bermuda high, but many other factors, such as cold fronts that move across the US during this time of year, that are not as consistent or predictable.

In Florida, we always prepare for the worst and hope for the best and while the exact path of Irma is not absolutely known at this time, we can not afford to not be prepared.

Jose could begin to feel some increasing wind shear partly due to outflow winds aloft from Hurricane Irma, which may put a crimp on its intensification.

On Irma's heels is a system the NHC is giving a 90 percent chance of development over five days.

As of 10 a.m. CDT Tuesday, the newly named Tropical Storm Jose was located about 1,505 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and was moving to the west-northwest at 13 mph.
