Jose strengthens into hurricane in Atlantic Ocean

Tropical Storm Jose forms east of Hurricane Irma

Tropical Storm Jose forms east of Hurricane Irma

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says that Tropical Storm Katia is starting to stall over Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains. That's because key environmental factors tend to align at that time to fuel especially powerful storms, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which considers the eight-week period around September 10 a hurricane "season with a season".

Jose could hit some of the same small islands in the northern Lesser Antilles decimated by Irma. At this time, Jose is not expected to follow the same path as Irma. "For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office", the National Hurricane Center wrote.

Hurricane Katia made landfall on Mexico's Gulf coast Friday night.

Hurricane Jose will likely become a hurricane before the end of the week, but it's most likely to stay in the middle of the Atlantic, far from land, and Hurricane Katia will landfall in Central Mexico at the start of the weekend.

The second tropical storm is closer to home. Although models last night didn't suggest Jose poses a threat to the continental United States, the storm, which meteorologists warn could generate sustained winds in excess of 130 miles per hour, could deliver another blow to the northern Leeward Islands, which are still recovering from a direct hit from Irma.

After NOAA updated its hurricane outlook, FEMA Administrator Brock Long said at the time, "Today's updated outlook underscores the need for everyone to know their true vulnerabilities to storms and storm surge". Unlike Harvey, which moved to the north and strengthened rapidly, Katia is expected to stick close to Mexico. "Pretty much everyone at this point is very done with hurricane season". It is in the Atlantic, moving behind Category 5 Hurricane Irma, also in the northwest direction. Hurricane Jose has winds of about 90 miles per hour.

The hurricane center cautioned that "it is too soon to specify the timing and magnitude of the impacts". In five days, a trough moving across the US should begin weakening the western edge of the ridge, allowing the storm to slide north. However, hurricanes are notoriously unpredictable and the consensus does seem to suggest that Katia will increase her power, just nowhere near what Irma has reached.

Hurricane Jose is similar to Irma in that it's a Cape Verde hurricane, forming in the far eastern Atlantic, CNN is reporting. An average hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, and most of these storms form in the month of August. "This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, especially in areas of mountainous terrain", the advisory reads.
