Hurricane Jose continues to meander in the Atlantic

  • Caicos after Irma

This past weekend, Irma, a devastating Category 4 hurricane, swept up over the Florida Keys and then up Florida's Gulf Coast, becoming the third of this season's four catastrophic Atlantic hurricanes.

However, after Monday night, Jose may slam on the brakes hard, ceasing almost all forward motion, likely setting up a roller-coaster-like path that will take the storm in a series of loops, circles, dips and dives over for the entirety of next 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. Understandably, not too many in the Sunshine State have had time or attention for Jose.

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.

Unable to move to the north, and restricted from moving to the east by a developing upper level high pressure, Jose should have no choice but to meander for a few days in between Bermuda and the Southeast U.S.

Jose was expected to turn northeast Monday night, forecasters said.

That's according to the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami which said this morning that "some slight weakening is forecast, and Jose could become a tropical storm by tonight".

"Remnants of tropical storms can bring more unsettled conditions into north-west Europe, taking on the characteristics of an Atlantic storm".

While all eyes are focused on Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Jose is also looming to the west and could still threaten the United States later this week. But hurricanes into November and even December are not unheard of.
