Jose downgraded to tropical storm but expected to restrengthen to hurricane

Jose has weakened from a hurricane to a tropical storm, but the National Hurricane Center expects it will strengthen again sometime late Friday.

As of 10 a.m., Jose was 435 miles northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 520 miles southwest of Bermuda.

"This evolution will cause Jose to make a slow clockwise loop during the next 3 days and then turn northward and northwestward once it moves around the western side of the ridge", forecasters wrote this morning.


The hurricane does not now pose a threat to land and forecasters expect few changes in its intensity. It has maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and is expected to restrengthen on Friday.

The NHC issued an advisory at 11 a.m. Thursday for Tropical Storm Jose. There are no warnings or watches with the storm but surf swells are being generated that are impacting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico and the southeast coast of the USA, including North Carolina. The vast majority of computer models still keep the storm out to sea, but a few show it making a potential landfall along the US East Coast, CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.

AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said Jose was expected to fluctuate between a minimal hurricane and tropical storm over the next several days.
