Hurricane Jose to do clockwise loop over Atlantic

jose satSeptember 13, 2017 – As of 11 am EDT (1500 UTC), Hurricane Jose is being affected by strong wind northwesterly shear and the current max wind is estimated at 65 knots. Jose has been moving slowly southeastward, however, most models show that Jose will complete a clockwise loop to the south then west then today and Thursday, then start to track northward after 48 hours. The official forecast keeps Jose either as a Cat. 1 hurricane or a strong tropical storm over the next several days, however, there is still some room for strengthening as it turns loops west then northward.
