Jose still in the Atlantic: NOT an imminent United States threat

Jose has officially become the season's fifth hurricane

Hurricane Jose, which started off as Category 4 hurricane, has lessened to Category 2 as of the latest update on September, 11 by the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, the National Hurricane Center said.

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

Maximum sustained winds had decreased to near 75 miles per hour, making it a weak Category 1.

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

The forecast after that is less certain, with some models suggesting the storm will loop toward the north and northeast and other models having it move west toward the Bahamas.




"There's no high-pressure system in the Atlantic at the moment like the one that pushed Irma toward the Bahamas", Live 5 Meteorologist Stephanie Sine said.

Jose is now not a threat to land.

However, whether the hurricane hits the Canadian shores or not will depend on the timing of the frontal boundary and the strength of the high pressure ridge, Hull explained.

As with Irma, Jose's exact threat to the United States is still unknown and will be determined over the coming days.

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

This places the entire eastern side of North America at risk, with Jose capable of making its landfall anywhere between SC, U.S. and Newfoundland, Canada.
