HURRICANE TRACKER: Category 1 Hurricane Jose Weakens, Forecast To Not Impact US

With Irma diminishing to a tropical storm, a hurricane-battered nation could soon shift its attention to Hurricane Jose, now meandering around the western Atlantic Ocean roughly 300 miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Hurricane Jose's forecast, September 12, 2017.

Jose is a Category 4 hurricane with 130 miles per hour winds on Sunday and is expected to gradually weaken over the next few days.

As for intensity, the hurricane center is predicting a high-end Category 1 hurricane with 90-mph winds by Saturday.

Trump meets Malaysia leader under investigation by his Justice Department
At their meeting, Trump and Najib focused on areas of agreement, such as economic development and counter-terrorism measures. It reads, "Today, President Trump will welcome Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak of Malaysia to the White House".

The forecast track of Jose shows it making a spiral path in the general direction of the southeastern United States.

The much talked about Hurricane Jose was supposed to follow Irma's path and cause destruction to the already ravaged Caribbean.

The forecast path for Hurricane Jose in the next few days is so odd that internet commenters have come up with the advice, "Go home, Jose, you're drunk".

By Monday, a ridge of high pressure will ride along the east coast.

Sheikh Sabah claimed that the Qatari government was ready to discuss a list of 13 demands from its Arab neighbors. This is while analysts have touted the Qatar crisis as the fallout of Trump's visit to Riyadh in early June.

Computer models, commonly known as the "spaghetti models", have the storm turning to the northeast late this week or in the weekend and then spinning towards the North Atlantic.

While no significant damage has been reported from Jose so far, it is still capable of "life-threatening" surf and rip-current conditions in the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and the northern coast of Puerto Rico.

Jose is no Irma, however. Of 20 runs of the GFS model ensemble forecast Monday morning, 25% resulted in an eventual landfall in the USA, and another 25% in Canada.
