Hurricane Jose lingers in Atlantic, will it head toward US?

Posted September 14, 2017

"Jose is moving toward the east near 5 miles per hour (7 km/h), and a turn to the southeast and south at a slow forward speed is expected over the next couple of days".

Even the GFS, which initially showed Irma headed towards a SC landfall, agrees with the European model about Jose, she said.

Hurricane Jose weakened overnight and could become a tropical storm later Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center. However Jose is now forecast to simply make a northern turn and then loop back around to the south and then east again - with the east coast dead in its cross hairs.

The much talked about Hurricane Jose was supposed to follow Irma's path and cause destruction to the already ravaged Caribbean.

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

A series of court decisions since then have said that order must include people with grandparents and cousins in this country. What isn't settled is a lower court order protecting refugees who do not have close family members in the United States.

Models show a wide range of possibilities, all the way from SC to Newfoundland, or even out to sea.

Of course, forecast models can change; Irma was definitely proof of that, with models originally pointing at a landfall as far north as North Carolina before consistently shifting west to a landfall on the west coast of Florida at Marco Island Sunday afternoon. The rest kept the storm out to sea.

As for intensity, the hurricane center is predicting a high-end Category 1 hurricane with 90-mph winds by Saturday.

The only areas feeling its effects in the next day or so should be parts of Hispaniola, the Bahamas, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
