No Way Jose! NHC Says Hurricane Jose Restrengthening, But Heading Into North Atlantic
By Space Coast Daily // September 15, 2017
435 miles east-northeast of the Southeast Bahamas
NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER – NHC has downgraded Jose to a hurricane, but it’s expected to restrengthen.
It’s centered as of 11 a.m. about 435 miles east-northeast of the Southeast Bahamas and about 520 miles south-southwest of Bermuda.
Jose is moving toward the west-northwest near 7 mph, and this motion is expected to continue through Friday, followed by a turn to the northwest on Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Some restrengthening is forecast to begin on Friday, and Jose will likely become a hurricane again by the weekend.
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the Southeast coast of the United States, and will spread northward along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the U.S. during the next few days.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
