Too early to tell if Hurricane Jose could hit Florida

Too early to tell if Hurricane Jose could hit Florida

At its peak the storm prompted evacuation orders for 6.5 million people in Florida, the largest evacuation in modern USA history.

Jose is weakening as it moves between the Bahamas, Bermuda and Puerto Rico and is forecast to do a slow, clockwise loop staying away from land. It is forecast to weaken to Category 1 strength in a few days, with winds between 75 and 90 miles per hour.

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

Hurricane Jose's forecast, September 12, 2017. It was one of four hurricanes to hit the Sunshine State that year. The strength and location of this ridge will determine how far Jose moves westward before eventually turning north and then east again. "The official forecast goes out five days due to the considerable uncertainty beyond day five", a Monday afternoon update says.

The latest European model shows Jose circling around the west Atlantic for much of the upcoming week.

NMSU achieves national top tier university ranking
Among national campuses, the Westwood school was ranked 21st, up from 24th past year , when crosstown USC bested it by one place . The Tickle College of Engineering's undergraduate program was ranked No. 34 among public universities and No. 61 in the country.


The center's official forecast finds Jose just over 400 miles from Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday morning.

"Within the next 72 hours we would get a better picture of Jose in terms of posing any immediate threat to the country at this time". As a much stronger Category 4 storm, the hurricane passed only 85 miles from the island nation of Antigua and Barbuda last weekend. It's now a tropical storm in Georgia, and is predicted to decrease to a tropical depression by early Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

In May, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that unseasonably warm ocean temperatures and a no-show from El NiƱo would contribute to a potentially "extremely active" hurricane season.

The 2017 Atlantic basin hurricane season will end on November 30.

"Even outside the loop it won't be the same path as Hurricane Irma".
