Hurricane Jose continues to meander in the Atlantic

The National Hurricane Center is forecasting Hurricane Jose, a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale, to stay over the Atlantic most of the week of September 11 - 15.

At 3 p.m. Monday, the storm was 225 miles northeast of Grand Turk Island, just southeast of the tip of the Bahamas. As it exited on Saturday evening, maximum wind speeds were registered at 145 miles per hour, along with a unsafe storm surge.

After Irma climbed up Florida, it had slowed to a tropical depression as it dumps rain over Tennessee and the Ohio Valley, NHC reported.

The UN's migration agency reports that 125,860 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea so far this year. The legal challenge was also backed by Poland, which alongside Hungary has not taken in any asylum seekers.

It's still way too early to know exactly where Jose will end up, but it wouldn't be a bad idea for the United States to get comfortable with another hurricane making landfall.

Jose will meander north of the Caribbean region this week and pose no danger to land for most of the workweek.

Speaking to The Tribune yesterday, local Meteorology Department forecaster Ian McKenzie said Jose's three-day cone has it located to the east of The Bahamas in a projected looping motion.

A local meteorologist has sought to allay the fears of residents of a possible "double hit" after global experts revealed that Hurricane Jose is expected to make a loop that will affect parts of the Caribbean. Beyond that, however, the storm's future remained unclear. The strength and location of this ridge will determine how far Jose moves westward before eventually turning north and then east again.

The National Hurricane Center forecast takes the storm's path out to five days. Other forecasts, however, say the storm could directly impact the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts. Then, there's the lone model taking the storm through The Bahamas before making another Florida landfall.
