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

Caicos after Irma

"The official forecast keeps it out over the Atlantic as a hurricane over the next five days". But don't be fooled: Jose's track is far from definite as of Monday afternoon. Jose was still churning in the Atlantic Ocean Tuesday as a Category 1 storm, but some models showed the storm could have impacts has far as the East Coast of the United States by next week. "But then eventually move westward late this week and then more northward this weekend".

Fortunately, over the weekend, Jose only brushed the islands of the Caribbean that had been slammed by Irma, such as Barbuda, Antigua and the Virgin Islands. From there, where Jose goes is unknown.

"If you hear a rumor, especially on social media, regarding what Jose may or may not do", it said in its morning discussion, check a reliable source, such as Mount Holly or the hurricane center.

While Jose's trajectory is still uncertain, forecasters say there's at least a chance it could move northwest and hit the Bahamas - and possibly even Florida by next Monday.

It headed out to sea causing little additional damage, and was recently downgraded from a category four hurricane.

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

Given the uncertainty of Jose's track, the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly offers wise advice. The waters are very warm (hurricanes like 80°F+ water) plus thunderstorm disturbances rolling off the west coast of Africa, which is a huge birthplace for tropical systems.

Though it's been hours since Irma left the premises, there's already another Category 2 storm out in the Atlantic that's pointing ominously toward Florida.
