Hurricane Jose Is Category 1, Continues to Weaken

Hurricane Jose Is Category 1, Continues to Weaken

The storm, which is now 255 miles northeast of Grand Turk Island in the Caribbean, is already complicating efforts to relieve the devastation brought about by Hurricane Irma.

Downtown Miami on September 11, 2017, after it was hit by Hurricane Irma.

While it may be uncomfortably close to the Carolinas at times, almost all computer models indicate that the storm will stay well off the coast.

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.

"The three-day cone still has it to the east of us moving parallel".

Such a path is concerning in the wake of Hurricane Irma, which has altered the beach landscape and made it more vulnerable to coastal erosion and flooding. "But then eventually move westward late this week and then more northward this weekend". Then, there's the lone model taking the storm through The Bahamas before making another Florida landfall.

"Until Jose is farther along on its loop, the models are likely to have large errors", said Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters, according to USA Today.

Current long-term forecast models for Jose are all over the map next week.

Though it's been hours since Irma left the premises, there's already another Category 2 storm out in the Atlantic that's pointing ominously toward Florida.

Irma, which had rampaged through the Caribbean as one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes on record, was downgraded to a tropical depression on Monday.

Tropical storm-force winds from Jose spread over the islands on Saturday. "Later this week and over the weekend, the hurricane is expected to move northwestward toward the east coast of the United States".
