What's next: Hurricane Jose could hit Eastern US, Canada

It's still way too early to know exactly where Jose will end up, but it wouldn't be a bad idea for the United States to get comfortable with another hurricane making landfall. That swell is now moving closer to the East Coast with rising wave heights on the West Bermuda buoy (41048) and the Northeast Bahamas buoy (41047) this morning.

Hurricane Jose is now expected to make a full and complete circle, ultimately redirecting its movement toward the west and closer to the USA east coast.

Irma's shield of rainfall will broaden and thin out significantly as the system heads north, so flash flooding will not be a threat north of the mountains of North Carolina.

As for its forecast, hurricanes in this part of the Atlantic often race out to sea and into oblivion, but that won't be the case with Jose. Overnight lows will return to the upper 60s to low 70s. However, right now most models keep the storm away from the east coast. Storms that have moved slowly between Hispaniola and Bermuda in the past have set up memorable runs of waves for both locations and all the variables look to be coming into place for Jose to produce.

From Wednesday into the weekend, there won't be a lot of drama in the local weather, yet it will fall short of ideal September conditions. But don't be fooled: Jose's track is far from definite as of Monday afternoon.

As for intensity, the hurricane center is predicting some fluctuations up and down over the next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from Jose's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles, the National Hurricane Center said.

Later this week we may be able to dismiss the possibility of a North Carolina impact - or focus in on any exact threat - but a direct strike is not imminent.
