Jose expected to become a hurricane again in Atlantic Ocean

Jose expected to become a hurricane again in Atlantic Ocean”

However, we'll need to watch a couple of waves in or about to enter the eastern Atlantic over the next week, as they may slowly develop in a generally favorable environment over the next week.

On Friday morning, Jose was traveling with winds speeds up to 70 miles per hour, which is below the threshold of a Category 1 hurricane.

The NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC), based in Miami, said that Tropical Depression 14 is set to become Tropical Storm Lee later today.

At 5 a.m. AST/EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located near 27.5 north latitude and 69.0 west longitude, about 435 miles (700 km) north-northeast of Grand Turk Island. And it still could be out there for a week or more, a local meteorologist adds. "Interests along the US east coast from North Carolina to New England should monitor the progress of Jose during the next several days".

So, the obvious question: Will it impact here?

Interests from North Carolina northward to New England on the east coast of the United States should monitor the progress of this system.

The storm may bring a high risk of rip currents, too. By Tuesday, it could be east of North Carolina and Virginia. By the time it reaches the Long Island coast Wednesday, it is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm. No such low exists at this time, he added.

The storm is looping around in the Atlantic Ocean at lethargic speed, driven by steering currents to its north and, later, the south.

"It's going to be a pretty strong storm off shore", he said. I'll talk more next week about why I think October could be a very unsafe month for Florida, perhaps in particular for the Gulf Coast.

If it continues toward New York City, Jose could disrupt vessels carrying crude oil, petrochemicals and refined products in the Atlantic seaboard, "particularly those making deliveries to New York Harbor", said Shunondo Basu, a Bloomberg New Energy Finance meteorologist and natural gas analyst in New York.

The chance of tropical storm force winds at the Jersey Shore is less than 20 percent, he added.

The system is then expected to reintensify to a hurricane later as it will encounter more favorable upper-air conditions.

While none of these systems appear to have any impacts on the Gulf of Mexico as of now, it's important to keep a hurricane plan in place because we are still in the most active part of hurricane season and things can quickly change. "There's a lot of the season to go".

This one will likely be watched much more closely as it could have USA and/or Gulf of Mexico impacts beyond 10 days, but it remains way too early to tell this for with any scientific certainty.
