Hurricane Jose twists in Atlantic

14 September 2017

Hurricane Jose's forecast, September 12, 2017.

Hurricane Jose is heading east at 5 mph about 450 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island, as of the 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

As for intensity, the hurricane center is predicting a high-end Category 1 hurricane with 90-mph winds by Saturday. Although Jose's strength has diminished over the last two days, there is the chance that it could increase in strength once it completes its loop and turns towards the coast.

As people in Florida, the Caribbean and the South cope with the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, another hurricane is spinning in the Atlantic, and forecasters aren't certain if it will impact the U.S.
