The eye of Hurricane Irma was located near latitude 16.8 North, longitude 58.4 West, 225 miles east of Antigua and about 230 miles east-southeast of Barbuda.

The 10th Tropical Storm of the 2017 season, Jose, has officially formed in the open Atlantic. However, Jose is expected to strengthen and could become a hurricane by Friday, the hurricane center said.

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.

Elsewhere, it is too early to determine what direct impacts Irma may have on the continental United States, including the SC coastline.

Tropical Storm Jose looms right behind Hurricane Irma

Irma will be traveling over very warm waters which will be a favorable environment for sustaining its strength as a Category 5 hurricane, although fluctuations in intensity will continue with eyewall replacement cycles.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. I have continued to be briefed by the Florida Division of Emergency Management on Hurricane Irma and current forecast models have Florida in Irma's path - potentially impacting millions of Floridians.

The hurricane center said Tuesday Jose had 40 miles per hour winds, and was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

Formation chance through 48 hours: 60 percent.

That tropical wave, Invest 95L, was in the southwestern Gulf on Tuesday morning, according to the hurricane center. The storm is far away from any land mass, and is 1,500 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.
