Hurricane Jose weakens a little as it turns east in Atlantic

Hurricane Jose weakens a little as it turns east in Atlantic

According to the National Hurricane Center in an update at 5 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, Jose is a Category 1 storm with 75 miles per hour winds.

Jose is now located about 400 miles north of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving northwest. Its minimum central barometric pressure is 28.59 inches.

Hurricane Jose moved away from the northern Leeward Islands on Saturday, giving relief to the Caribbean archipelago battered by Hurricane Irma.

Jose was expected to turn northeast Monday night, forecasters said.

Swells generated by Jose and Irma will continue to affect the U.S. East Coast, leading to risky rip current conditions this week.

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. Beyond that, however, the storm's future remained unclear. "But then eventually move westward late this week and then more northward this weekend".

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from Jose's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles, the National Hurricane Center said. Potential tracks vary wildly, from landfalls in the south up to the Canadian maritimes, while others take Jose out to sea permanently.

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

Meteorologist Eleanor Bell, of The Weather Channel, said: "Models are continuing to struggle to resolve the track of this storm".

Before this hurricane season, the United States had gone a record 12 years without a major hurricane landfall. There will still be enough moisture for scattered showers, but it will in no way be a washout or bring a flash flood threat to the area.
