Hurricane Jose hangs on in the Atlantic

Hurricane Jose hangs on in the Atlantic

What else should I know about the hurricane? The majority of indications lean toward Jose maintaining some distance from the U.S. Atlantic coast, likely to be shunted off to the northeast by the weekend farther into the northern North Atlantic.

In any case, forecasters said the shear environment will keep the hurricane relatively weak, with maximum expected winds of 80 miles per hour throughout the next few days.

At of 6pm day, the Category 1 storm was 422 nautical miles south of the island, and deemed a potential threat.

The agency said that Jose is "expected to restrengthen by the weekend".

Below are the latest forecasts for Jose.

GFS for Monday night with tropical storm winds possible for the Outer Banks.

GFS for next Wednesday bringing tropical storm winds to Cape Cod and maybe to Boston.

While track models are coming into better agreement on Jose's path, "there still remains a significant spread", among a few of the forecasts.

AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said Jose was expected to fluctuate between a minimal hurricane and tropical storm over the next several days.

WeatherBell has been very accurate with hurricane forecasts and they do strengthen Jose to a Category 3 storm close to the Outer Banks and a Cat 2 storm southeast of Cape Cod. By Tuesday, it could be east of North Carolina and Virginia.
