The Hurricane Center reports that Jose "remain over SSTs [sea surface temperatures] over 29C [84 degrees Fahrenheit] for the entire forecast period".

Both storms followed a similar path, moving west across the Atlantic before making a sharp turn to the north.

As Irma has been losing steam while it is travelling up the US, eyes have started turning to Hurricane Jose, which is sitting north of the Caribbean Islands.

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

Anything beyond those five days is nothing more than an educated guess, as a lot can happen in between now and then.

The prediction, however, is shaky as best as the NHC's "cone of uncertainty" for Jose is not a cone at all - it's a circle, suggesting the storm could go in any direction.

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

Others have it spinning off into the Atlantic, sparing the USA from further turmoil.

For the European weather model, a recurvature out to sea or a landfall in New England or Canada were the preferred solutions.

More than 22,000 miles above the surface of Earth, a new weather satellite run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration captured high-resolution imagery of three unsafe hurricanes moving across the Atlantic Ocean over the past week.

We have had three powerful hurricanes over the past week. The upside is hurricane season slows down from here until the end of November, so everyone along the coasts should be able to breathe easy again in a few short months.
