In the aftermath of Irma, all interests across the East Coast of the United States should keep a close eye on Hurricane Jose as it meanders across the central Atlantic Ocean this week, according to AccuWeather.com.

Jose, currently a Category 2 hurricane, is churning hundreds of miles northeast of the Turks and Caicos. While some weakening may occur, Jose is expected to maintain hurricane status through the week.

Jose, which had been trailing Irma's path last week, had been expected to hook northwest and out to sea, but conditions have since changed, making it more of an East Coast threat with its path uncertain.

“The storm will remain over warm water for the next several days, and this should allow it to maintain a robust circulation,” AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski said.

The movement of a large area of high pressure, or clockwise flow of air in the atmosphere, will guide Jose along this week as now Tropical Storm Irma's remnants affect much of the East Coast with intermittent rain Wednesday and Thursday. (See image above.)

“Jose is expected to remain between Bermuda and Hispaniola for the next several days but then eventually move westward late this week and then more northward this weekend,” Kottlowski said.

There are several paths Jose can take this weekend and during the third week of September, AccuWeather.com said.
