Tropical Storm Jose forms in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Jose forms in the Atlantic

Hurricane expert, Dan Kottlowski said the hurricane would bring strong and damaging winds to coastal areas within 50 to 60 miles of the landfall point.

During peak hurricane season - right now - it's not at all uncommon to see one, two, or in this case, three tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic.

The potentially catastrophic Category 5 storm made landfall in the Caribbean early Wednesday morning. Jose's preliminary forecast track has it moving north of Irma's path, in the direction of North Carolina.

The good news with Jose is after passing the Less Antilles, the storm is expected to go northwest into the open Atlantic Ocean.

Hurricane Katia intensified to Category 2 on Friday as it move west-southwest across the Gulf of Mexico. Hurricane Katia isn't expected to have a direct US impact, and Hurricane Jose is still far out in the Atlantic - but that doesn't mean they aren't making people nervous. It then was downgraded to a tropical storm and forecasters expect it to dissipate Saturday.

Jose has maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, and "interests in the Leeward Islands should monitor the progress" of the storm.

A warming climate certainly will bring rising sea-surface temperatures, which may prolong hurricane seasons on a more regular basis.

"We've got some effects that are probably going to take place on Tuesday", Head said, referencing the current weather models for Irma.

Just as Jose was upgraded to a hurricane Wednesday afternoon, so was Katia.

Incredibly, all three of the active hurricanes in the Atlantic basin could affect land at the same time on Saturday: Irma over the Bahamas (and approaching Florida), Jose over the northeastern Leewards, and Katia in Mexico.

But naming tropical storms that may morph into killer hurricanes is serious business, which is why the UN's World Meteorological Organization (WMO) maintains veto power.

For now, Irma remains by far the greatest threat after becoming the biggest Atlantic hurricane in recorded history overnight.

The Lesser Antilles are now in the path of Irma, which has become a "potentially catastrophic" Category 5 hurricane.

Hurricane Irma ripped up palm trees in a residential area of Miami - which was only hit a glancing blow by the hurricane. In five days, a trough moving across the US should begin weakening the western edge of the ridge, allowing the storm to slide north.

The potential for destruction is also greater because warmer temperatures mean the air can hold more moisture, so hurricanes produce more rain, causing more floods.
