Hurricane Jose continues to meander in the Atlantic

13 September 2017

According to the National Hurricane Center, at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jose is now at 75 miles per hour, losing some of its punch overnight.

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

Jose is a low end category 1 hurricane with max sustained wind speeds of 75mph.

With all the hurricane activity down south, it may only be a matter of time before a storm moseys up north.

At midday today, Jose was 700 miles east of Florida and could possible pose threat to the United States by this weekend.

Hurricane Irma brought widespread destruction in Florida, with Florida Keys being the worst affected area.

A complicated high-altitude environment over the Atlantic Ocean is what is causing Jose to wobble around the Atlantic.

Jose will turn toward the north tonight and Monday, then toward the northeast Monday night, with a slower forward motion.

The latest European model shows Jose circling around the west Atlantic for much of the upcoming week.

"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", Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters said.

In the meantime, the hurricane center continues monitoring Jose's progression and intensity, while Hispaniola, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands brace for rough surf and rip currents over the next few days.

Latest forecast models are struggling to track the hurricane's exact path, but the tail-end of the storm could bring some unstable conditions to the United Kingdom in about 10 days time.
