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

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

As of Monday, the National Hurricane Center is predicting that the storm will reach the edge of the Caribbean on Wednesday. The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30.

As potentially-catastrophic Category 5 Hurricane Irma continues to strengthen, Tropical Storm Jose has formed further east in the Atlantic. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration has predicted that the 2017 hurricane season will be above normal - and with that prediction comes the possibility of more storms.

Update 8 a.m.: Hurricane Irma has strengthened to Category 5 hurricane with 175 miles per hour winds.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Guadeloupe and Dominica, as well as the Dominican Republic from south of Cabo Engao to Isla Saona and for Haiti from south of Le Mole St. Nicholas to Port-Au-Prince. Environmental conditions are conducive for gradual development, and this system is likely to become a tropical depression during the next couple of days while it meanders over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.

So, what might we still be in for during hurricane season?

Irma is deservedly getting all the attention at the moment, but there are two other systems to watch in the tropical Atlantic.

The powerful hurricane could produce 10 inches of rain, cause flash floods and landslides, and create waves up to 23 feet. It has winds of 40 miles an hour.

Still, forecasters at AccuWeather were not ready to rule out east coast impacts. Right now, it's being identified as Potential Tropical Cyclone 10, but could be upgraded to Tropical Storm Irma if sustained winds get high enough.

However, Jose is coming behind Hurricane Irma, a unsafe Category 5 hurricane that the National Hurricane Center is calling "potentially catastrophic".

One was christened Tropical Storm Jose on Tuesday morning. If it heads closer to the USA and gains steam, it has the potential to take the next name on the NOAA list - Jose. "The good news is, Floridians still have time to prepare".
