Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic

Posted September 14, 2017

With Irma diminishing to a tropical storm, 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.

According to the National Hurricane Center, at 11 p.m. Tuesday, Jose is now at 75 miles per hour.

After Irma climbed up Florida, it had slowed to a tropical depression as it dumps rain over Tennessee and the Ohio Valley, NHC reported.

The loop back toward the coast comes after Jose is expected to travel southwest - essentially backwards - and then move closer to shore.

At 5 a.m. AST/EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located near 26.1 degrees north latitude and 66.0 degrees west longitude. It is expected to remain well to the east-northeast of the Bahamas through Wednesday, the hurricane center predicted.

Lower courts blocked both provisions, but the Supreme Court in June allowed certain parts to stand provisionally. The administration also sought to reverse the part of the ruling that protected refugees who were in the U.S.

On Tuesday, the hurricane had weakened as it turned eastward.

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

Jose is now not a threat to land.

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.

For the European weather model, a recurvature out to sea or a landfall in New England or Canada were the preferred solutions.
