Weather Update (9/15). Hurricane, Typhoon, Tropical Storms projections

A thread about the latest on world weather and Hurricane/Typhoon/TS status and projections as of 9/15. You can check the storm projections yourself with the following link:

Tropical Storm Jose
Tropical Storm Jose, meandering the past few days in the Bermuda Triangle, will be an increasing high surf generator, and a close brush with the U.S. East Coast cannot yet be ruled out next week. Jose could be a life-threatening rip current risk as it near the eastern seaboard next week.

TS Jose projection has now shifted closer to the US and will strengthen back to Hurricane Cat 1 status. It is still possible this storm may hit NYC or NE area as a Tropical Storm/Depression.

Unnamed Storm
Tropical Depression 14 formed in the Atlantic overnight ...the NHC estimates its chances of becoming our next named storm are 80%

If named, "Tropical Storm Lee", is headed to the Caribbeans. It is unknown at this time the future strength of this storm until later this weekend.

Other parts of the world outside the US.


Typhoon Talim
Talim is forecast to approach Kyushu as typhoon with winds equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic...Luckily, Talim will weaken more quickly once interacting with the mountainous terrain over southern Japan. This will bring a rapid decrease in damaging wind speeds. However, despite weakening, Talim will still bring a dose of heavy, tropical rainfall.

This storm hit Taiwan and mainland China equivalent to a TS. It is now battering Japanese southern islands and it's headed for mainland Japan. Note, there has been wildly inaccurate reports on the strength of this storm. It's likely this storm will be equivalent to Cat 1 or Cat 2 as it approaches mainland Japan.

Typhoon Doksuri
Weather forecasters said the heavy rain is likely an effect of Typhoon Doksuri near Vietnam, which has displaced some 100,000 people so far.

Landfall on the Coast of Vietnam on Friday as it make its way towards the north of Thailand and Cambodia over the weekend equivalent to a TS.

Hurricane Max and Tropical Storm Norma
Max became a hurricane on the southern side of Mexico. This system made landfall as a Category 1.
Just to the northwest of Max is Norma, which became a tropical storm Thursday morning. Norma, could again put Mexico on alert for tropical moisture for the weekend...Norma is likely to become a hurricane as it churns in the warm waters of the East Pacific.
