Jose a hurricane again, track brings storm close to New England

Maximum sustained winds are near 70 miles per hour, but further strengthening is forecast as it continues its westerly track - but with an expected northerly turn that could threaten the Northeast.

Jose has re-strengthen into a Category 1 hurricane as it sits off the coast of North Carolina. Jose is looking better organized on satellite and appears set to gain strength over the next couple of days.

About a week ago, Jose was a Cateogry 4 hurricane with winds of more than 150 miles per hour, but it weakened as it meandered in the Atlantic, doing a loop-the-loop before heading toward the U.S.

Interests from North Carolina northward to New England on the east coast of the United States should monitor the progress of this system.

Jose moving west-northwest on Friday. That storm has 35 mph winds and is located about 430 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

AccuWeather reports Jose will track between Bermuda and the east coast of the United States into next week, generating risky seas in the process.


On Sept. 15, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. EDT (1330 UTC), NOAA's GOES East satellite captured this visible image of the Tropical Storm Jose northwest of the Bahamas.

The storm's track is forecast to go northward Sunday into Monday. "Prudence dictates that people in southern New England should pay close attention to later forecasts regarding Jose this weekend", the forecasters said.

ME could see tropical storm winds, rain and high seas from Jose.

"We expect Jose to fluctuate between a minimal hurricane and tropical storm over the next several days", according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski. But it weakened after reaching that peak last weekend. "These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", it added.

The peak of hurricane season is generally from mid-August to mid-October.
