Too early to tell if Hurricane Jose could hit Florida

  • Caicos after Irma

Another model takes the storm through the Bahamas before hitting Florida.

Calling it an "odd forecast track", the National Hurricane Center said that Jose should make a small clockwise loop over the open waters of the Atlantic for the next three days.

Forecasters said with certainty that the storm would generate storm waves and rip currents on coasts of the Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas later in the week, according to the Weather Channel.

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

The latest European model shows Jose circling around the west Atlantic for much of the upcoming week.

During the weekend the projected track has it well off the Florida and Georgia coasts, and the model consensus keeps it at sea, but five days is a quasi-eternity in the hurricane-forecasting universe. As of Tuesday morning, Jose was a low-end Category 1, and could weaken further into a tropical storm.




The center's official forecast finds Jose just over 400 miles from Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday morning.

The forecast for Tuesday has a "high risk" for rip currents along the DE and Jersey beaches, and sees a "moderate to potentially high risk of rip currents through the weekend".

"Within the next 72 hours we would get a better picture of Jose in terms of posing any immediate threat to the country at this time". It was once a Category 4.

A local meteorologist has sought to allay the fears of residents of a possible "double hit" after global experts revealed that Hurricane Jose is expected to make a loop that will affect parts of the Caribbean. If history is a guide, more will be on the way.

Warm Tropical Atlantic sea temperatures are likely to lead to a very active hurricane season.
