Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic

Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic

However, there is still plenty of uncertainty with the track of Jose, as we've seen with Irma over the last week, so we will continue to give the latest updates daily on the air, online and on our NBC Boston/necn apps.

Jose, once a powerful hurricane threatening already devastated Caribbean islands, downgraded to a tropical storm Thursday.

According to the National Hurricane Center, at 11 p.m. Tuesday, Jose is now at 75 miles per hour.

Jose is moving to the southeast and is expected to make a slow clockwise loop in the next 48 hours.

As of 10 a.m., Jose was 435 miles northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 520 miles southwest of Bermuda. The storm is expected to restrengthen to a hurricane by the weekend.

NASA's Terra satellite is one of many satellites keeping a close eye on Hurricane Jose and saw the storm between the Bahamas and Bermuda.

The National Hurricane Center said Jose is losing muscle, but should remain a low-end hurricane for the next two days. The vast majority of computer models still keep the storm out to sea, but a few show it making a potential landfall along the US East Coast, CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.

“Hurricane Jose is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm on Friday as it turns north-westward. There is generally not a dominant weather feature that is steering the storm, so model forecasts can vary widely between each other and from run to run.

Because Hurricane Jose is so far from land, the National Hurricane Center has issued no watches or warnings yet.
