NASA sees Hurricane Jose in between Bahamas and Bermuda

NASA sees Hurricane Jose in between Bahamas and Bermuda

Jose's center is now located near latitude 27.6 North and longitude 67.4 West, about 480 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island and about 640 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

On Sept. 12 at 1:35 p.m. EDT (15:35 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible image of Hurricane Jose. The storm was moving east at about 7 miles per hour. A Category 1 hurricane packs winds between 74 miles per hour and 95 miles per hour, as gauged by the scale.

While track models are coming into better agreement on Jose's path, "there still remains a significant spread", among a few of the forecasts.

From there, Jose is expected to continue to turn to the northeast by Sunday.

Current long-term forecast models for Jose are all over the map next week.

Irma Sucking Tampa Bay and Ocean Around Naples Dry
A Twitter user posted a video Saturday afternoon showing what appears to be a dried out shoreline somewhere in the Bahamas. Angela Fritz, an atmospheric scientist and the Washington Post 's deputy weather editor, explained what happened.

Even the GFS, which initially showed Irma headed towards a SC landfall, agrees with the European model about Jose, she said.

"Even with such a complex track expected to evolve, there is good agreement amongst most of the model guidance", the National Hurricane Center said in a forecast discussion.

Meanwhile, as Central Floridians continue to clean up after Hurricane Irma plowed through the region Sunday night and Monday morning, the storm - now a tropical depression - is expected to move through Alabama and into Tennessee on Tuesday.

For the European weather model, a recurvature out to sea or a landfall in New England or Canada were the preferred solutions. Of 20 runs of the GFS model ensemble forecast Monday morning, 25% resulted in an eventual landfall in the US, and another 25% in Canada.
