The Tuesday afternoon Hurricane Jose update from the National Hurricane Center

Calling it an "odd forecast track", the National Hurricane Center said that Jose should make a small clockwise loop over the open waters of the Atlantic for the next three days.

At 5 p.m., the center of the storm was about 480 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island.

Hurricane Jose has maximum sustained winds at 75 miles per hour and is moving southeast at 7 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Parts of Canada most likely to experience the effects of Hurricane Jose in the coming week include Atlantic Canada, Ontario, and Quebec.

Hurricane Jose continues moving slowly eastward with little change in strength.

Hurricane Irma left a deadly wake in the Caribbean islands before slamming into the Florida Keys early Sunday, then pushing north through Florida.


The hurricane center's forecast track shows Jose making a slow loop in the Atlantic through the next five days.

There are now no watches or warnings with Jose or Irma.

By Monday, a ridge of high pressure will ride along the east coast. Hurricane Jose now sits on the northern side of the Caribbean Islands and it might just be heading towards the Canadian coasts.

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

The future path of Jose after it makes its stalling loop in the western Atlantic remains uncertain, but we will continue to monitor it for any potential USA impact.
