Hurricane Jose still a potential threat to Florida after Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Jose was 700 miles east of Florida at midday Tuesday, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph, making it a Category 1 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.

The storm is now 655 miles northwest of Puerto Rico moving east at 6 mph, and is expected to loop to the southeast and southwest before it heads northwest by Friday. It was a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, and was moving east at 6 miles per hour.

After Irma climbed up Florida, it had slowed to a tropical depression as it dumps rain over Tennessee and the Ohio Valley, NHC reported.

"However, if the extra-tropical storms skirt further north, it could result in drier, warmer and more settled conditions instead".

If that happens, by September 18 it could again be pointed at the islands all but destroyed by Hurricane Irma last week.

Mr McKenzie continued: "The loop stops midway in the southwest Atlantic".

"Until Jose is farther along on its loop, the models are likely to have large errors", said Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters, according to USA Today. Of 20 runs of the GFS model ensemble forecast Monday morning, 25% resulted in an eventual landfall in the US, and another 25% in Canada.

For the European weather model, a recurvature out to sea or a landfall in New England or Canada were the preferred solutions.

Forecasters were reluctant late Monday afternoon to predict the storm's intensity or threat to the mainland beyond Saturday.

The National Hurricane Centre said: "Some additional weakening is possible during the next day or so, and Jose could weaken to a tropical storm later today".

Any potential direct hit from Jose wouldn't be until next week, however.

After Monday night, the National Weather Service says Jose may do something odd: it could hit the brakes and start a series of loops. "The official forecast keeps it out over the Atlantic as a hurricane over the next five days".
