At 10 p.m., Tropical Storm Jose was 510 miles south-soutwest of Bermuda, headed west-northwest at 13 mph. What's unclear is how far west Jose will get and how strong Jose will be.

As if one new storm isn't bad enough, now we could very well have two.

The storm, which is now 255 miles northeast of Grand Turk Island in the Caribbean, is already complicating efforts to relieve the devastation brought about by Hurricane Irma.

"It's not impossible but the probability of that happening is really low".

AccuWeather reports Jose will track between Bermuda and the east coast of the United States into next week, generating unsafe seas in the process.

Just four days after Hurricane Irma struck the Florida Keys as a fierce Category 4 hurricane, a new tropical depression formed late Thursday over the far east Atlantic. With ridges all around Jose will be trapped for a period of time with nowhere to go and may slow to a crawl. What happens after the loop is uncertain.

By the way, the last storm named "Lee" was a tropical storm that impacted Acadiana during the Labor Day weekend of 2011. Does this storm then curve northwest harmlessly out to sea?

The storm had winds of 40 miles per hour and was moving north at 5 miles per hour.

On Tuesday, there may be the potential for a brief tornado or two in eastern North Carolina, but conditions are not favorable for such a threat here.

Even outside of this motion, Mr McKenzie said there is no expectation Jose will follow the same path as Hurricane Irma, which was now moving across the United States, causing flooding and tornadoes.

How significant the storm is locally remains quite unclear but it's certainly worth watching.
