Tropical Storm Josephine Forms; Not a Threat to U.S.

11 AM Josephine forecast track
11 AM Josephine forecast track

Tropical Storm Josephine has formed in the central Atlantic about 975 miles east-southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands but it poses no immediate threat to the continental United States. Josephine is expected to continue tracking west-northwestward at 15 mph, likely keeping it north of the northern Lesser Antilles by the weekend. Josephine is expected to strengthen over the next couple of days but by the weekend this system is expected to enter into an unfavorable environmental which could aid in weakening the tropical system or even degenerate it into a tropical wave by early next week. All East Coast residents in hurricane-prone areas are encouraged to monitor the progression of Tropical Storm Josephine in the coming days, but at this time it does not pose a threat to the United States. Tropical Storm Josephine is the earliest tenth named storm on record to form in the Atlantic.
