Jose forecast to loop’ before heading away
Hurricane Jose, meandering over the Atlantic Ocean, nonetheless remains a potential threat to Bermuda.
At noon, the storm’s closest point was expected to be 329 nautical miles to the south-southwest of Bermuda at 8pm today.
According to the Bermuda Weather Service, the threshold for being deemed a potential threat is 400 nautical miles.
Jose was downgraded to a category one storm this morning and was forecast to become a tropical storm later today.
The system is still expected to make a “clockwise loop over open water” and the BWS said it would then become a hurricane again.
The long-term forecast added that Jose is then expected to start a northwesterly path to the east of the Bahamas on Friday.
