Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal

However, Jose made a decision to change paths and spared the Caribbean and is now hurling in the Atlantic.

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

The much talked about Hurricane Jose was supposed to follow Irma's path and cause destruction to the already ravaged Caribbean.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Jose is now being classed as a category two hurricane, meaning winds of 96-110 miles per hour.

However, the system will still continue to maintain Hurricane Jose in the waters of the Atlantic.

However, according to the Weather Underground, long-range weather models suggest that the high-pressure area will then force the hurricane to move west-northwest toward the east coast.

At 5 a.m. AST/EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located near 26.1 degrees north latitude and 66.0 degrees west longitude.

Over the next few days, the hurricane is expected to make a rare loop and reverses its direction.

"It's been looping around, and that is when things start to get really tricky", he said.

No other major weather models have Jose hitting the United States, however some show the storm veering towards the east coast bringing heavy winds and possible storm surges. Those models show the storm reaching areas between SC and Canada.
