Tropical Storm Jose emerged over the open Atlantic earlier on Tuesday, right on the heels of Hurricane Irma as it slammed into the Caribbean.

The cyclone which is now pushing max winds of 70 mph (110 km/h), is getting closer to the Category 1 hurricane threshold with every moment.

NOAA’s National Hurricane Center predicts that Jose could reach hurricane-level winds as early as today.

Meanwhile a new tropical depression formed in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, rapidly growing into a full-blown tropical storm earlier on Wednesday.

Katia is now expected to pound the coast of Mexico with heavy rainfall as it grows in strength – potentially becoming another hurricane in the region.

Where is Tropical Storm Jose?
At 11am EDT (4pm BST) Tropical Storm Jose was located about, 1135 miles (1,825 km) west of the Lesser Antilles.

On the forecast track, the cyclone poses no immediate danger to land but the Leeward Islands are advised to monitor the weather front.

“The northern Leeward Islands are at risk of contending with enhanced showers and tropical-storm-force conditions this weekend, which could hinder Irma recovery efforts,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Rob Miller.

“At the very least, rough surf will be stirred once again,” he added.

The NHC’s latest predictions for Jose’s path see the hurricane curving away from the Caribbean in a northwest direction.

By Monday, the eye of the hurricane should be located several hundred miles north of the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
