Hurricane Jose moving in Atlantic, expected to shift away from Puerto Rico

Hurricane Jose moving in Atlantic, expected to shift away from Puerto Rico”

Closer to home, almost stationary Hurricane Katia in the Bay of Campeche will likely travel southwestward through Friday making landfall Friday night between Tampico and Veracruz Mexico.

In its 4 p.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said Katia now has maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour. It's unclear if the United States will see any impact from the storm.

While Jose could miss these islands, hurricane watches have been issued.

Hurricane Jose, another Cape Verde storm, is following in the wake of Irma, but it's projected to travel along a more northerly path. Jose is expected to swing north by Sunday, at which time it could be a major hurricane, a Category 3 or greater.

Katia is expected to drop 10 to 15 inches of rain over parts of Veracruz, eastern Hidalgo, and Puebla, Mexico.

It was downgraded to a tropical storm Monday morning. In isolated areas, total accumulated rainfall could be as high as 25 inches.

Unlike Hurricane Irma's path, Hurricane Jose is forecast to move north and away from Puerto Rico and remain in the Atlantic Ocean, avoiding numerous chains of Caribbean islands that Irma has wrecked.

The National Hurricane Center is warning that "this rainfall will likely cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in areas of mountainous terrain". Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next day or so and Katia could be near major hurricane strength at landfall.

Katia is moving toward the west-southwest near 3 miles per hour (6 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue until the system makes landfall within the hurricane warning area by early Saturday, Sept. 9.

"Winds exceeding 100 miles per hour on the Mexican coast, and heavy rainfall of 10-15" or more, along with flooding, and ultimately mudslides inland, will be possible with Katia before the storm dissipates inland this weekend.

"It also has the potential to significantly strain FEMA and other governmental resources occurring so quickly on the heels of (Hurricane) Harvey", Evan Myers, chief operating officer of AccuWeather, said in a statement.
