At a Glance

  • Tropical Storm Josephine has formed in the Atlantic.
  • Josephine is forecast to track north of the Leeward Islands by this weekend.
  • This system should also encounter increasing wind shear by the weekend, resulting in gradual weakening.

Tropical Storm Josephine has formed in the Atlantic Ocean, but this storm might be short-lived since it will battle increasingly unfavorable conditions as it tracks north of the Leeward Islands this weekend.

Josephine is located more than 1,000 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving to the west-northwest.

Conditions in the near-term future could allow Josephine to gain some additional strength as it tracks over the open Atlantic waters.

This weekend, increasing wind shear should make conditions less favorable for intensification and the National Hurricane Center forecasts weakening to occur. There is the possibility this system could dissipate by that time as well.
