New storm forms, may turn hurricane by Friday

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

Hurricane Katia churned nearly 200 miles (322 km) off the Gulf coast of Mexico on Wednesday evening before an expected turn towards land that could dump heavy rain on eastern states in the coming days, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

On Sept. 7, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said a Hurricane Warning is in effect for Cabo Rojo to Laguna Verde, and a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from north of Cabo Rojo to Rio Panuco and south of Laguna Verde to Puerto Veracruz. Jose was located about 1,505 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Earlier in the day, Katia was slightly nearer to the Mexican coast, and at about 7 p.m. CDT (0000 GMT) was moving to the southeast at around 3 miles per hour (5 kph), the centre said.

Tonight on Channel 11 News, Severe Weather Team 11 is tracking when Hurricane Irma will make landfall in Florida and how it could impact us here.

Just as Jose was upgraded to a hurricane Wednesday afternoon, so was Katia.

Tropical Depression Thirteen has formed in the southwest Gulf of Mexico.

Irma's core slammed Barbuda early Wednesday before moving over St. Martin and Anguilla and parts of the British Virgin Islands.

Though it's unusual for three hurricanes to be active in the Atlantic basin at the same time, it's not without precedent.

At this time, Jose is not expected to follow the same path as Irma. Prime Minister Gaston Browne said it's possible a mandatory evacuation may be ordered by Friday.

Although the exact track of the storm is still uncertain, rain, wind and waves seem all but certain to impact the Sunshine State by Saturday given the sheer size of the storm.

Hurricane Jose will likely become a hurricane before the end of the week, but it's most likely to stay in the middle of the Atlantic, far from land, and Hurricane Katia will landfall in Central Mexico at the start of the weekend.

Katia is anticipated to pass over Mexico, dumping heavy rain over the states of Veracruz, Tamaulipas and Puebla.
