Hurricane Jose: Separating fact from hype

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

Jose is a low end category 1 hurricane with max sustained wind speeds of 75mph.

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.

While Irma was unleashing fury the past few days Jose was strengthening into a formidable Category 4 hurricane, normally something that would be the headliner for surfers in the Atlantic.

There are some rumors swirling about Hurricane Jose hitting NY in ten days. The storm is now moving in a northeastward direction.

Jose's future after Friday is where it gets complicated.

"Regards to Jose, most of the concern would be mainly the mariners", Mr McKenzie told The Tribune.

"Until Jose is farther along on its loop, the models are likely to have large errors, and we should not take too much comfort (or indulge in too much angst) over a particular set of model runs", said Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters.

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. But Jose initially wasn't projected to come as close to the East Coast as the latest forecasts predict.
