On Sept. 12 at 1:35 p.m. EDT (15:35 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible image of Hurricane Jose.

Forecasters say the presence of the hurricane could bring showers and a chance of thunder tomorrow afternoon and into the evening, although fair to fine conditions are expected for Friday.

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 1100 AM AST [1500 UTC], the center of Tropical Storm Jose was located near latitude 24.9 North, longitude 66.6 West".

Jose is a Category 1 storm in the Atlantic generating 75 miles per hour sustained winds, barely hurricane strength. It's about 510 miles east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 470 miles south of Bermuda, moving toward the southeast at 7 mph.

Now, as steering currents in the Atlantic remain weak, Jose has encountered wind shear in the atmosphere, weakening it into a tropical storm. There are no warnings or watches with the storm but surf swells are being generated that are impacting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico and the southeast coast of the USA, including North Carolina.

Over the weekend it is expected to harmlessly turn north and end up somewhere between Bermuda and The Outer Banks by Sunday.

Some of our long range guidance shows Jose drifting back to the west, approaching the Mid-Atlantic and New England during the middle of next week.
