Jose Downgraded to Tropical Storm

Jose Downgraded to Tropical Storm”

The so-called cone of uncertainty for Tropical Storm Jose now includes North Carolina's Outer Banks after the National Hurricane Center shifted its forecast west Thursday. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour with gusts up to 85 miles per hour.

It's Jose's potential track that is getting all the attention, however.

“Hurricane Jose is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm on Friday as it turns north-westward. They are expected to spread north along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the USA during the next few days.

Most computer models indicate Jose will stay out to sea and complete a tight enough loop to avoid moving onshore.

That's because a ridge of high pressure in the vicinity could be stronger than expected and steer the storm first toward the northwest and then the north. Keep in mind it is still way too early and models routinely have difficulties forecasting that far out.

It's too early to tell whether Jose will affect the US coast next week.

Waves churned up by the storm are affecting the Southeast U.S. coast as well as Bermuda, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico and will spread toward the Mid-Atlantic coast over the next few days.

"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", center officials said.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect for this storm.

We have just been through one of the most active and destructive stretches in recent Atlantic Hurricane history.

It has a 40 percent chance of development over five days.
