Tropical Storm Jose expected to strenghten

Share

In the wake of Harvey and Irma, two devastating storms, there's still about two and a half months of the hurricane season left.

The storm debuted as a tropical wave on August 31 as it exited Africa.

Swells generated by Jose were affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the Southeast coast of the United States, and will spread northward along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the USA during the next few days. And it still could be out there for a week or more, a local meteorologist adds.

Hurricane Jose, now spinning about 600 miles east of Miami, remains a threat to the East Coast next week.

So, the obvious question: Will it impact here?

From the get-go, computer models have suggested that it would have an erratic and aimless career, but recent guidance is bringing it close to the USA coast by the middle of next week. However, it is too early for the computer models to make an accurate forecast as to where Invest 96L would make landfall along the USA east coast, if at all.

The storm passed by the east coast of Florida on Friday at a speed of 10 miles per hour, with relatively low sustained wind speeds of 75 miles per hour.

And then Jose is gone?

Hurricane Jose is expected to weaken to a tropical storm as the storm nears New England. But Martrich said that will likely fizzle.
