Hurricane Jose Could Near US East Coast Next Week

13 September 2017, 12:29 | Simon Arnold

The National Hurricane Center's forecast has Jose looping around the Atlantic Ocean away from land but potentially nearing the southeastern Bahamas as a hurricane late in the week.

With Irma diminishing to a tropical depression, a hurricane-battered nation could soon shift its attention to Hurricane Jose, now meandering around the western Atlantic Ocean roughly 300 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Jose is a low end category 1 hurricane with max sustained wind speeds of 75mph. Its minimum central barometric pressure is 28.59 inches. While it is expected to be downgraded to a tropical storm Tuesday, the forecast calls for it to regain hurricane strength Thursday.

However by next week, forecasters say Jose can also just go harmlessly out to sea.

"The storm will remain over warm water for the next several days, and this should allow it to maintain a robust circulation", AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said.

"It is too early to tell if Jose will have any direct impact on Florida, but it is expected to turn to the north in three or four days", the state Division of Emergency Management posted on its website Monday. But forecasters warn that long-term forecasts are often off by hundreds of miles. The loop back toward the coast comes after Jose is expected to travel southwest - essentially backwards - and then move closer to shore.

"Until Jose is farther along on its loop, the models are likely to have large errors, and we should not take too much comfort (or indulge in too much angst) over a particular set of model runs", said Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters. There will still be enough moisture for scattered showers, but it will in no way be a washout or bring a flash flood threat to the area.
