Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic

Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic”

The storm is forecast to make a weird clockwise loop over the next few days before straightening out and heading toward the southeastern United States.

"Canada appears more like than the U.S.to receive a hit from Jose at this point, but it is too early to be believer in these long-range model forecasts", Masters wrote in his Cat 6 blog on Weather Underground.

In the meantime, the only impact from the hurricane will be rough surf and the chance of rip currents in Hispaniola, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands over the next couple of days.

But models can have trouble forecasting unusual tracks such as Jose's expected path. The strength and location of this ridge will determine how far Jose moves westward before eventually turning north and then east again.

With more than two months left in the current hurricane season, NOAA advises coastal residents to have a plan should a tropical system threaten or strike.

This is due, the center said, to an area of high pressure that will move around the hurricane over the next several days.

The center's official forecast finds Jose just over 400 miles from Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday morning.

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

Irma has now been downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane but surge warnings remain in effect.

Tropical storm-force winds from Jose spread over the islands on Saturday.

Meanwhile, remnants of the destructive Hurricane Irma will likely be seen on the east coast as well.

Forecasters are eyeing the path of Hurricane Jose, as it circles close to the south-east coast of the United States of America, in case remnants of the storm impact Britain's weather.
