Jose strengthens into hurricane in Atlantic Ocean

Jose strengthens into hurricane in Atlantic Ocean”

Haiti and the Dominican Republic are ahead, and it is likely to hit Florida this weekend.

Jose has been upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane. The British Virgin Islands are also in Jose's path.

The Atlantic basin now has three hurricane-strength storms at once.

Storm Katia weakened to a tropical depression on Saturday as it moved into the interior of Mexico, but it could still dump heavy rains on areas that have absorbed large amounts of precipitation and been shaken by a massive natural disaster in recent days.

The latest two cyclones, Jose and Katia, are now the 10th and 11th storms to be named in the Atlantic in 2017, and there are still eight tortuous weeks left in the official hurricane season.

As of midday Friday, Jose was located about 415 miles east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands, and had maximum sustained winds of 150 mph, making it a Category 4 storm on the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity.

However, Jose is coming behind Hurricane Irma, a unsafe Category 5 hurricane that the National Hurricane Center is calling "potentially catastrophic". It's then predicted to turn northeast, traveling north of the coast of Puerto Rico on Sunday before turning back into the ocean.

Katia is in the Gulf of Mexico, about 105 miles east of Tampico, Mexico. According to Mexico's National Meteorological Service, Hurricane Katia will hit the state of Veracruz Friday evening or Saturday morning.

Forecasters expect Jose to become a hurricane by 8 am ET Thursday, though it will still be far at sea. The storm is expected to strengthen during the next 48 hours.

Projected path of hurricane Katia.

Due to a large patch of dry air over Louisiana and Texas, Katia will not move northward into Hurricane Harvey-devastated areas, Accuweather reported. Mexico will experience heavy rainfall and increased risk of flash floods and mudslides, especially in Veracruz and southern parts of the state of Tamaulipas.
