Hurricane Jose Is Category 1, Continues to Weaken

Caicos after Irma

Unlike Irma, which became a monster Category 5 hurricane over the ocean with near-record winds, Jose is not forecast to become a major hurricane this week, although it will retain hurricane strength.

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

In a pocket of weak steering winds in the open Atlantic, Jose is expected to make a clockwise loop.

Connecticut's weather next Monday through Wednesday is largely dependent on the track of Hurricane Jose.

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.

Spaghetti charts for Jose show a complicated future for the storm. There is generally not a dominant weather feature that is steering the storm, so model forecasts can vary widely between each other and from run to run.

However, most computer models indicate Jose will stay out to sea and complete a tight enough loop to avoid moving onshore.

The National Hurricane Center forecast takes the storm's path out to five days.

Jose will meander north of the Caribbean region this week and pose no danger to land for most of the workweek.

Additionally, the position of the jet stream as well as the size and scope of the pressure systems over the Atlantic beyond 120 hours is extremely hard to resolve at the moment.

"It is not forecast to come to South Florida", said National Weather Service meteorologist Larry Kelly.

Where does Jose end up? On that track Jose is forecast to be hundreds of miles east of the Georgia and SC coasts as a hurricane.
