Tropical Storm Jose formed in the Atlantic, making it the 10th named storm of the season.

Jose was located about 1,505 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. V.C. Bird International Airport says it is shutting down Tuesday to seek protection from the powerful storm, The Associated Press reported.

As of 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jose was a minimal tropical storm, with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The storm is moving at 14 mph with 150 mph sustained winds and gusts up to 180 mph.

Tropical Storm Jose could strengthen into a hurricane by late this week.

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.

The next update on Tropical Storm Jose will be issued at 5 p.m.

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. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or unsafe.

Environmental conditions are conducive for gradual development, and this system is likely to become a tropical depression during the next couple of days while it meanders over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.

The storm formed over the open Atlantic.
