Hurricane Jose East of the Bahamas – No Expected Threat to Land Sep 12, 2017

Hurricane Jose continues to slowly move through the Atlantic Ocean, but is not expected to pose a threat to any land areas throughout the forecast. The storm is located about 480 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island in the Turks and Caicos, and about 640 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The storm is maintaining hurricane strength, with maximum sustained winds at 75 mph and gusts to 90 mph. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds push out up to 140 miles, but are not being felt in any land areas.

On Monday, thunderstorms were poorly organized around Jose, but satellite imagery indicates that storms have moved into comma-type pattern today. This supports the storm remaining a hurricane, and little weakening is show this week from forecast models. A mid-level ridge in the Central Atlantic will building westward Wednesday and then northward Thursday, followed by pushing east-northeast of Jose toward the end of the week. As a result of the ridge’s movement, it is expected that Jose will execute an anticyclonic loop over the next 3 to 4 days. This weekend, the storm is forecast to turn northward and north-northeastward while moving through a break in the ridge. This will push the storm well out to sea.
