Forecasters Officially Upgrade Tropical Storms Jose And Katia To Hurricanes

Tropical Storm Jose Becomes the 10th Named Storm of the Hurricane Season

"Pretty much everyone at this point is very done with hurricane season".

- It's too early to tell whether it will make landfall on the USA mainland. Only 60 hurricanes have formed in November since 1851, compared with 205 October hurricanes, NOAA reports.

"It may not make landfall and its outer edge may only reach land".

NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared temperature data on the eastern side of Hurricane Katia on September 7 at 3:29 a.m. EDT (0729 UTC). However, the hurricane is forecast to turn southwestward and approach the coast within the warning area late Friday or early Saturday.

It is quite unusual to find three tropical systems churning in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico at the same time.

El NiƱo is a naturally occurring phenomenon characterized by warmer-than-normal water in the eastern Pacific equatorial region.




Jose was the 10th storm to be named in 2017 in the Atlantic. The average risk is 52%. The National Hurricane Center said the storm is expected to drift to the southwest tomorrow, and may strengthen.

"Please allow us to help you seek refuge in shelter, and let people know the priority is to weather the storm (and) seek safe haven", Rossello said. "Trying to find climate change signals is pretty hard".

In Barbuda, the storm ripped the roof off the island's police station, forcing officers to seek refuge in the fire station and at the community center that served as an official shelter. The governor had warned residents that Irma could be more risky than Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas and Louisiana late last month.

The country was battered by Hurricane Matthew a year ago, which killed more than 270 people across the Caribbean.

"There are now 3 active Hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin, #Irma #Jose and #Katia".

Tropical Storm Katia also strengthened to Hurricane Katia on Wednesday afternoon. Although it is still early on, brand-new Hurricane Jose may come into focus within the next two weeks as interaction with the US coastline can not be ruled out. As of 5 am ET on Wednesday, maximum wind speeds were at 145 km/hr (90 mph) and these are expected to grow stronger over the next couple of days.
