Up next: Hurricane Jose and where it's headed


Jose is now located about 400 miles north of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving northwest.

Hurricane Jose is now travelling in a clockwise circle, but could go north later in the week.

Hurricane Irma pummeled Florida Sunday and Monday, causing damage in nearly every part of the state.

While it may be uncomfortably close to the Carolinas at times, almost all computer models indicate that the storm will stay well off the coast.

In the meantime, the only impact from the hurricane will be rough surf and the chance of rip currents in Hispaniola, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands over the next couple of days. On Thursday, Sept. 14, Jose is forecast to begin heading west again, eventually moving to a point to the northeast of the Bahamas by 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16. It will initially move farther away from the United States before coming closer to the Bahamas and East Coast.

During that time, Jose will be moving generally westward then more northward.

Current long-term forecast models for Jose are all over the map next week.

"Remnants of tropical storms can bring more unsettled conditions into north-west Europe, taking on the characteristics of an Atlantic storm". There is generally not a dominant weather feature that is steering the storm, so model forecasts can vary widely between each other and from run to run.

Hurricane-force winds extend up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend up to 140 miles.

But another major hurricane named Jose has been creeping its way toward the U.S.'s east coast as if to say: Don't forget about me.

After Hurricane Irma devastated islands such as Barbuda, Saint Martin and Anguilla, islanders were braced for the arrival of its fellow hurricane Jose. It will likely dissipate from Tuesday evening, the National Hurricane Center said.
