Tropical Storm Jose Forms Right Behind Category 5 Hurricane Irma

Tropical Storm Jose looms right behind Hurricane Irma

While the Northern Caribbean states are preparing for Category 5, Hurricane Irma, which has been described as "extremely dangerous" another tropical storm, named Jose, has formed.

The hurricane center said Tuesday Jose could become a hurricane by Friday.

As of 11 a.m. Tuesday, the storm is centered about 1,505 miles east of the Lesser Antilles (closer to Africa than the United States) and moving toward the west-northwest near 13 mph.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph with higher gusts and some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Irma is forecast to reach the northern portion of the Leeward Islands tonight or early Wednesday before moving west-northwest to be on Puerto Rico's doorstep Wednesday evening.

The National Hurricane Center issued a special 8 a.m. advisory saying an Air Force Hurricane Hunter found an intensifying Irma this morning as it approaches the Leeward Islands. It's too soon to know the exact impacts from Irma, but everyone should have a hurricane plan in place.

Tropical Storm Emily made landfall in the Anna Maria Island area and is making its way across the Sunshine State.

On Irma's heels is a system the NHC is giving a 90 percent chance of development over five days.

Computer models continue to vary on the storm's path because it is still far out into the Atlantic.

Forecasters are also watching a trough of low pressure located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico producing numerous showers and thunderstorms.
