Hurricane Jose: Track takes weakening storm on an Atlantic loop

Hurricane Jose continues to spin over the open waters of the Atlantic, and its eventual track remains uncertain.

Hurricane Jose spaghetti models from the U.S. GFS and the European system agree on a westward movement this week, the National Hurricane Center said.

Hurricane Jose is moving toward the east near 6 miles per hour and this motion is expected to continue today.

This past weekend, Irma, a devastating Category 4 hurricane, swept up over the Florida Keys and then up Florida's Gulf Coast, becoming the third of this season's four catastrophic Atlantic hurricanes.

Warm Tropical Atlantic sea temperatures are likely to lead to a very active hurricane season.

After Monday night, the National Weather Service says Jose may do something unusual: it could hit the brakes and start a series of loops.

These prediction models put Jose anywhere from SC to Newfoundland, or Jose could even move back out into the ocean. It's always a bit unsafe having a hurricane hanging around, and given the propensity for this particular storm to buck forecast trends, Jose is certainly worthy of the attention.

Meteorologist Eleanor Bell, of The Weather Channel, said: "Models are continuing to struggle to resolve the track of this storm".

Latest forecast models are struggling to track the hurricane's exact path, but the tail-end of the storm could bring some unstable conditions to the United Kingdom in about 10 days time.

The Weather Underground said that the weather models forecasts could still have potential errors and people should not panic yet.

Presently, the only impact from Jose will be the chance of rip currents in Hispaniola, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands over the next couple of days.
