Tropical Storm Jose 2011
August 28, 2011 by USA Post
At 11 am EDT (1500 GMT), the U.S. National Hurricane Center said that Joseph was 75 miles (125 km) southwest of Bermuda and moving north over the central Atlantic Ocean. That was not a threat to the U.S. Coast or energy interests in the Gulf of Mexico.
The storm had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles (65 kilometers) per hour and little change in strength was expected in the next 24 hours, the NHC said.
He said tropical storm conditions are expected in Bermuda, in which Joseph could dump up to 3 inches (8 cm) of rain. But the storm is expected to weaken on Monday before dissipating as it has a projection of the track north-northeast towards the sea.
Joseph formed near the British territory as Hurricane Irene, the first hurricane of the 2011 season of the Atlantic, approaching the city of New York after beating their way up the East Coast North Carolina, which made landfall Saturday.
Irene was downgraded to a tropical storm on Sunday morning as we dropped the New York region with winds and driving rain.
Observers were also mindful of the time on Sunday on a cluster of showers and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave several hundred miles (km) south-southwest of the Cape Verde islands off West Africa.
Miami-based National Hurricane Center said the system had a “half chance” of becoming a tropical cyclone in 48 hours. If it becomes a tropical storm, the system will be named Katia.
