Jose now a major hurricane

Jose now a major hurricane”

Satellite images show three hurricanes now lined up in the Atlantic Ocean threatening to make landfall. Katia is a Category 1, and is expected to make landfall late Friday.

This is something Eric Blake, an NHC scientist, said is "unparalleled here and totally ridiculous given [the scale of] Irma". Storms of Category 3 and above are defined as major hurricanes. It's forecast to be a named storm within the next 48 hours. These pilots, called the Hurricane Hunters, plunge into the strong bands of hurricanes to gather scientific research to help forecasters and scientists predict the path and scope of destruction.

General view of damage following Hurricane Irma hitting Sint Maarten, the Dutch side of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, Sept. 6, 2017.

Tropical Storm Katia formed early Wednesday off the coast of Mexico. It is packing maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, according to the US National Hurricane Center.

Have your say! This story is open for comment at the bottom of the page. Those in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of Jose, in addition to Irma, closely, advised Weather.com. Instead, Katia will churn across mainland Mexico after passing through Veracruz, according to a projected path by the National Hurricane Center.

Now, Irma is hammering a string of northeast Caribbean islands and making its way toward a possible hit on Florida over the weekend.

During late August and into September, Atlantic Ocean waters are at their warmest compared to any other time of the year.

The last hurricane to make landfall in November was Otto previous year.

Meanwhile, Katia strengthened into a hurricane in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. By Sunday morning, Irma is forecast to be just south of the Florida Keys, still as a Category 4 storm, putting Florida in the crosshairs. "Pretty much everyone at this point is very done with hurricane season".

Hurricane Irma is proving so unsafe because of its size and intensity.

Both of the storms had wind speeds so high, measuring instruments had trouble reading the levels or could not withstand the conditions. "This storm is in the Goldilocks environment for a major hurricane".
