Tropical Storm Jose forms to the east of Irma

Tropical Storm Jose looms right behind Hurricane Irma

Jose, the 10th tropical storm of this busy Atlantic hurricane season, has formed in the Atlantic behind the monster that is Irma. However, Jose is expected to strengthen and could become a hurricane by Friday, the hurricane center said.

Right now Jose has sustained winds of 40 miles per hour moving WNW at 13 miles per hour.

Irma continues to gain strength, and Tuesday morning, was upgraded Category 5 hurricane with winds now to 175 miles per hour.

Both islands are part of the northern Leeward Islands, and are under a hurricane warning as Irma approaches the region. It's still unclear how Irma will affect the United States, though Florida is bracing for a possible hit.

A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.

Some fluctuations in intensity are likely during the next day or two, but Irma is forecast to remain a powerful category 4 or 5 hurricane during the next couple of days.

Jose, the 10th named storm so far this season, had winds of 40 miles per hour. It's too soon to know the exact impacts from Irma, but everyone should have a hurricane plan in place.

On the current forecast track, the center will move near or over portions of the northern Leeward Islands Tuesday night and early Wednesday, accompanied by life-threatening wind, storm surge and flooding.

Jose has formed as Hurricane Irma is surging forward, further to the west in the Atlantic, as a Category 5 storm.

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