Hurricane Jose maintains Category 1 status, winds

Jose has officially become the season's fifth hurricane

Hurricane Jose weakened overnight and could become a tropical storm later Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

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.

As of Tuesday morning, Jose was 435 miles northeast of Grand Turk Island and 655 miles northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Powerful Hurricane Jose continued to track northwest and away from land on Sunday while still packing winds of 130 miles per hour.

With all the attention focused, rightly, on Hurricane Irma and the damage she has done, do not forget that there is a second hurricane still churning in the Atlantic. A Category 1 hurricane packs winds between 74 miles per hour and 95 miles per hour, as gauged by the scale.


As with any weather forecast, and as we have seen with Hurricane Irma, hurricane tracks and intensities can change overnight. The furthermore path of Jose at present is uncertain and it is still being monitored whether Hurricane Jose will pose any major threat to the East Coast of the United States.

Jose is no Irma, however.

Jose is expected to turn southeast tonight, followed by a turn toward southwest Wednesday.

Meteorologist Ross Hull from the Global News says that Hurricane Jose is expected to mellow down to a Category 1 hurricane in the coming few days.

The future path of Jose after it makes its stalling loop in the western Atlantic remains uncertain, but we will continue to monitor it for any potential USA impact.
