Tropical Storm Jose forms in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Jose looms right behind Hurricane Irma

On the heels of Hurricane Irma, which reached Category 5 strength on Tuesday morning, Tropical Jose formed.

Irma is still about 1,500 miles away from Florida, but all of South Florida, including Palm Beach County, is now in the five-day forecast track cone.

Jose now poses no immediate threat to land but is expected to strengthen, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of a 10:00 AM, tropical storm Jose was located to the east of Hurricane Irma.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour, with higher gusts.

The storm may hit Florida, and it prompted Gov. Rick Scott to issue a state of emergency on Monday afternoon.

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.

Irma is forecast to reach the northern portion of the Leeward Islands tonight or early Wednesday before moving west-northwest to be on Puerto Rico's doorstep Wednesday evening. A warning is typically issued 36 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm- force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or unsafe.

Invest 95L is generating a wide area of rain and storms, and a tropical depression could form in the next day or two, forecasters said.

Jose was about 1,500 miles east of the Caribbean and was so far expected to travel to the northwest, above the Caribbean.
