Tropical Storm Jose Is On Its Way Right Behind Hurricane Irma

Story Highlights

Another tropical storm has formed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Jose is well east of the Lesser Antilles.

Jose will likely become a hurricane by later in the week.

Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of Jose, in addition to Irma, closely.

Jose is expected to gain strength the next few days and become a hurricane later in the week as it tracks toward the west-northwest.

By this weekend, Jose is then expected to slow down and turn northwest. However, how close Jose comes to the northern Lesser Antilles before making that turn remains uncertain.

 

Jose could begin to feel some increasing wind shear partly due to outflow winds aloft from Hurricane Irma, which may put a crimp on its intensification.

For now, all residents of the Lesser Antilles, including areas to be hard hit from Irma, should also monitor for the latest on Jose’s forecast.

Check back with weather.com for updates in the days ahead for the latest details on these two areas to watch.
