Jose May Edge Up East Coast as Category 1 Over Weekend

Jose has officially become the season's fifth hurricane

Jose, which has maximum sustained winds of 120 kph (75 mph), is moving southeast at 13 kph (8 mph), the NHC said in a public advisory released at 0900 GMT.

The BWS stated: “There continues to be several factors affecting Jose in the next several days that will greatly influence its intensity and track.”.

Hurricane Jose was forecast to move away from the island last night — but may come closer again over the weekend.

Hurricane Jose, a pale followup to Category 5 Irma, could churn up North Carolina's coast with tropical-force winds and risky surf by this weekend, forecasters said. It is forecast to head northwest over the weekend, by which time it is expected to be downgraded to a tropical storm. It was moving west-northwest at 7 miles per hour as of 11 a.m. Thursday. That's about 505 miles (810 Km) east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 435 miles (700 km) south of Bermuda. Keep in mind it is still way too early and models routinely have difficulties forecasting that far out.

“Hurricane Jose is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm on Friday as it turns north-westward. Those effects will spread north along the mid-Atlantic coast in the next few days.

NASA's Terra satellite and NOAA's GOES East satellite have been just two of the fleet of satellites monitoring the life and death of former Hurricane Irma.
