Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic

Jose has officially become the season's fifth hurricane

This would be a category 1 storm.

Forecasters say the presence of the hurricane could bring showers and a chance of thunder tomorrow afternoon and into the evening, although fair to fine conditions are expected for Friday.

Hurricane Jose was downgraded to a tropical storm and is "moving slowly westward" on Thursday morning, September 14, according to an update from the U.S. National Hurricane Center at 5 a.m.

With maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour, Jose was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm in the hurricane center's 11 a.m. ET advisory.


GFS for Monday night with tropical storm winds possible for the Outer Banks. It's 445 miles east of the Bahamas and moving slowly west at 3 mph.

Jose, once a powerful hurricane threatening already devastated Caribbean islands, downgraded to a tropical storm Thursday. There are no warnings or watches with the storm but surf swells are being generated that are impacting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico and the southeast coast of the US, including North Carolina. Higher surf and swells are possible along the east coast, but not many other direct effects are expected.

The eastern Atlantic has been very active this summer with both Irma and Jose originating in this area of the ocean.

The Canadian computer model keeps Jose away from North Carolina but does have landfall in along Cape Cod with tropical storm winds for Boston and Providence, RI.
