Jose, as of the latest update from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14, is now a Tropical Storm at least 400 miles south of the island of Bermuda.
Hurricane Jose has lost strength over the last few days and is now carrying 75 miles per hour max sustained winds.
Jose was moving west from its location about 510 miles south-southwest of Bermuda and would produce swells that could impact the Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and the southeastern U.S with unsafe surf and rip-currents.
In addition to Jose there are two other tropical waves being watched by the hurricane center. The storm is expected to restrengthen to a hurricane by the weekend. The vast majority of computer models still keep the storm out to sea, but a few show it making a potential landfall along the US East Coast, CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.
Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles.
The BWS stated: There continues to be several factors affecting Jose in the next several days that will greatly influence its intensity and track.. The majority of indications lean toward Jose maintaining some distance from the U.S. Atlantic coast, likely to be shunted off to the northeast by the weekend farther into the northern North Atlantic.
According to the Bermuda Weather Service, it is nearing the base of its turn and is expected to turn westerly and then west-northwesterly over the next day or so. Here's the five-day map as of 10 a.m. Thursday.
