What happened to Hurricane Jose?

Posted September 14, 2017

As of Tuesday morning, Jose was 435 miles northeast of Grand Turk Island and 655 miles northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

After Irma climbed up Florida, it had slowed to a tropical depression as it dumps rain over Tennessee and the Ohio Valley, NHC reported.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, the National Hurricane Center said. It lost a lot of its punch from earlier Tuesday and was as high as a Category 4 storm with winds around 155 miles per hour.

Current long-term forecast models for Jose are all over the map next week. It is expected to remain well to the east-northeast of the Bahamas through Wednesday, the hurricane center predicted. Because of the shear, it is not expected to gain much strength and may perhaps weaken a little over the next five days.

As people in Florida, the Caribbean and the South cope with the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, another hurricane is spinning in the Atlantic, and forecasters aren't certain if it will impact the U.S.

The future path of Jose after it makes its stalling loop in the western Atlantic remains uncertain, but we will continue to monitor it for any potential USA impact.

However, whether the hurricane hits the Canadian shores or not will depend on the timing of the frontal boundary and the strength of the high pressure ridge, Hull explained.

But the European computer model, the one that was most accurate tracking Irma as it moved closer to landfall, shows a turn back towards the Atlantic beginning some time Saturday.
