Hurricanes Jose, Katia gain strength

Hurricanes Jose, Katia gain strength”

Hurricane Jose in the open Atlantic, some 1,000 miles (1,610 km) east of the Caribbean's Lesser Antilles islands, could become a Category 3 and eventually threaten the US mainland.

Jose is one of two major hurricanes in the Atlantic basin. The National Hurricane Center has not issued any coastal watches or warnings. While this hurricane isn't as strong as Irma or Jose, it will still cause flooding along the Mexican coast with wind and possible storm surge damage. Irma is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

It's the first time since 2010 that three active hurricanes have been in the Atlantic.

Jose's central "cone", a prediction of the storm's track, shows the strongest potential 110+ miles per hour winds would miss much of the Caribbean, though experts are on watch for possible landfall on the northern Leeward Islands. The latest is category 5 Irma, which hit several Caribbean islands on Wednesday, laying waste to homes, communities and claiming lives.

It's unclear if the United States will see any impact from the storm. While it is too soon to know the impacts, if any, Irma could have in the Gulf, we will continue to monitor the storm's path closely in the WGNO Weather Center.

Hurricane Jose continued to gather strength far out in the Atlantic and was nearing Category 5 strength as it churned east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands.

Jose is expected to strengthen and move northwest in the next couple of days, according to the NHC.

Just as Jose was upgraded to a hurricane Wednesday afternoon, so was Katia. Katia could hit southeastern Mexico by the weekend.

In addition, Hurricane Katia in the Gulf of Mexico has maximum sustained winds of 100 miles per hour and is expected to make landfall in Mexico early Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said. Mexico will experience heavy rainfall and increased risk of flash floods and mudslides, most likely in the southern part of the state of Tamaulipas and northeastern part of Veracruz.
